2009 "Wolves" Demise

After winning the 2008 NSW Premier League Championship, the club had showed many financial losses including AUD$240,000 in debts and losses of players and coaches. It was later announced that the current club would cease to exist and a new community organization would be formed which would ensure money problems would not plague the new club in the future.[1]

After a dismal 2009 season, the Wollongong Community Football Club requested a name change back to the former "Wolves" moniker, with the formal request being approved in November 2009.[2]
