Dianella White Eagles Soccer Club is an Australian semi-professional soccer club based in Perth. It was established by the local Serbian Australian community in 1978 as Dianella Serbia.

In 2023, the club will compete in the Football West State League Division 1.

History

The team was formed under the name of Dianella Serbia in 1978. The name was changed to the current one in the 1990s, as per the FFA requirements at the time. The club has had some success, winning the Division 1 title in 1993. That sent the team into Western Australia's highest division for a brief stint. The club has since spent its time in Division 1, coming close to winning the league in 2013 and 2017.

Club symbolism

The club's crest shows a soccer ball with a double headed eagle (the national emblem of Serbia) on a badge with the Serbian national colors of red, blue and white in the background. The club's song is called "Igrale se Delije".[citation needed]

Rivalries

Dianella White Eagles have a fierce rivalry with Western Knights, due to ethnic rivalry between Dianella's Serbian heritage and Western Knights' Croatian heritage.

Home ground

Dianella White Eagles' home ground is at Dianella Reserve, a public open space with many sporting facilities. The Dianella White Eagles share their ground with Little Athletics who use the ground during the summer months. The local Serbian community has also built its own stand-alone clubroom next to the existing clubrooms.
