The Cracovia Club (Inc.) was founded in 1950 as a Polish Soccer Club, but over the years it has evolved into a very strong community centre that provides recreational, cultural and sporting opportunities not only for the Polish community, but also the local community.
In 2011 the Cracovia Soccer club re-structured its Soccer Committee by appointing Marek and Wally S in charge of the Committee and John Sabetta as Head Coach. Other committee members included Stephen Mordue, Anthony Pullella, Nat Wemyss, Maurice Falcone, and Alan Bassett.
Since the restructure the Soccer has had some fantastic results both on and off the field.

During 2011 the Cracovia Soccer Committee signed 5 new sponsors to the club which helped with 3 New Home and away Soccer strips and equipment. The Sponsors and club were rewarded for their excellent support with the Cracovia Socials WINNING the North Division 2 league as well as the Amateurs winning The Sunday league Division 5. Both teams received promotions into higher Divisions. The Presentation night was a huge event.
