Heidelberg Football Club's original home ground was located at Heidelberg Park. After a recess during World War II, the club moved across Beverley Road to the current address at Warringal Park.
The Club colours are the famous yellow and black. To our supporters, we are known as the Tigers.
The proud spirit at Heidelberg has much to do with its family history and strong community ties. Current identities at the club are fourth generation names such as Twomey, Sheahan and Harvey, known for their involvement in the football club and the community.
The parklands were frequented by the famous Heidelberg school of artists including Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton and Frederick McCubbin during the late 19th century.
Warringal Park oval is one of the more picturesque grounds in the Northern Football League.
