GALLERY | Essendon Royals celebrate epic 60 years with grand celebration


Essendon Royals celebrated their 60th birthday in style at Hyatt Place Essendon Fields on Saturday, August 17.

The Royals hosted over 300 guests comprised of current and past players, former senior coaches and committee members, supporters, sponsors and even dignitaries from Football Victoria, including CEO Peter Filopoulos and president Kimon Taliadoris.

Moonee Valley City Mayor Narelle Sharpe was also in attendance and spoke wonderfully.

The Royals guests were treated to a brilliant night of celebration and dancing as we reminisced about 60 glorious years of Essendon Royals and its various iterations before it, including a video talking to some of the main figures from the club’s colourful past.

The night was expertly hosted by former senior player David Turkovic, while president Richard Di Sauro reminded everyone that while the night was a celebration of our great club’s history, it was also a chance to look forward to a very promising future.

Below you can enjoy a limited gallery of images (more to come!) and the video produced by Essendon Royals to celebrate the club’s past, present and future.
