About Us

La Fiamma was founded by Mr. Salvatore Sciuto, in January 1959. Salvatore in naming the Club decided to commemorate the only Italian Newspaper in Australia, based in Sydney, thus he bestowed the name La Fiamma, on the Club. The name means Flame or Beacon, a fitting name, which summed up Salvatore's love and dedication to the World Game, and what he wanted it represent in Gerald ton not just for the fledgling Italian Community but also for Soccer and Sport in general. 
Salvatore's image was not that of a purely Italian Club but a Multicultural Club (which it very much is), but he did want to preserve its Italian heritage (which is seen in the Logo with the Italian Shield in the centre of our Logo). La Fiamma is a proud Australian Club, but we are also proud of our Italian heritage. 
Our history reflects our determination, our proud spirit, our love for a sport which encourages the youth of today to strive for excellence and the value of hard work.
