The Past Players & Officials Association provides past players of the Geelong Football Club the opportunity to stay connected with their Club and to continue the friendships built during their playing days. The Association connects past players from all eras and hosts game day social activities for past players and their guests.
The Association celebrated 80 years of service to past players in 2014 and commemorated that milestone with the publication of a book, After the Game, by Susan Kruss. The book traces the history of the Association from its founding in 1933 and first president, J Galbraith, through to the present.
The Past Players and Officials Association moved into their new facilities in the Players Stand in June, 2014. The moved followed the redevelopment of the old Doug Wade stand. The old free-standing Rooms made way for the larger new stand, which includes a permanent home for the Past Players and a dedicated memorabilia display area.
Objectives of the Association:
- To foster and maintain good fellowship and companionship for former players and officials
- To keep alive the traditional spirit of the Cats
- To raise money for worthy causes at the Geelong Football Club
The Association hosts an annual golf day as well as match day activities in the Club rooms.
