The meaning of «fv community shield»

The Football Victoria Community Shield (formerly the Football Federation Victoria Community Shield) is the annual soccer match between the winners of the National Premier Leagues Victoria and the Dockerty Cup in the previous season. Serving as a "curtain raiser" in February ahead of the start of the season, it is considered to be a Super cup within the Victorian football league system.

Organised by Football Victoria, the FV Community Shield also has a focus on raising proceeds for various charity and community-based initiatives. The 2015 inaugural edition partnered with World Vision's "One Goal" program, whilst the 2019 edition was held in support of the #SaveHakeem campaign, seeking to free refugee and Pascoe Vale FC player Hakeem al-Araibi from detention in Thailand.

The FFV Community Shield was first announced on 27 January 2015 and would be played on 13 February later that year. It was held in support of World Vision's One Goal program, which aims to leverage the power of football to tackle malnutrition in Asia and Australia.

A women's FFV Community Shield commenced in 2017, featuring the winner of the Team App Cup and the NPL Victoria Women competition.
