Our Home Ground
The Port Melbourne Sharks are headquartered at SS Anderson Reserve, a soccer venue within JL Murphy Reserve, Port Melbourne. The clubhouse is made up of a large hall, canteen, bathrooms, as well as four change rooms to cater for both home and away sides.
The main soccer pitch (SS Anderson Reserve) is a high-quality surface, meeting the requirements of Football Victoria and the National Premier Leagues. It includes Australian standard flood lights and grandstand seating.
Our fields are open to the public outside training hours and game days. The facilities were of a sufficient standard to warrant being used as training facilities for both the Commonwealth and Olympic Games. The facilities also received some minor upgrades for use as a training venue for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup.
More recently, we are proud that PMSC, with the support of the City of Port Phillip Council, has been selected to host one of the competing countries for the 2023 Women’s World Cup as a training and home base for players and staff. As a result, we are working with the international governing body and government departments to secure funding to improve our facilities, sharing the benefit for our club and the greater community.
Working in conjunction with the Council, we’re making changes to become a more sustainability-conscious club. New grandstand seating was installed at the start of 2020, made from recycled soft plastics by REDCYCLE.
Bike racks were also installed just outside the front gates, along with the addition of a council water fountain by Pitch 2. This will make it easier for players to top-up their reusable water bottles and cut down on single-use plastics.
The Port Melbourne Sharks clubhouse hall is ideal for parties, dinners, conferences, and meetings. Learn more here.
The Port Melbourne Sharks carpark can be accessed from 430 Plummer St, Port Melbourne. The grounds can also be accessed from Williamstown Road, with the most convenient access point being the gate adjacent to the Anderson Oval bus stop.
Please note the Williamstown Rd gates and the carpark are closed to the general public for Senior Men NPL matches.
