Charles Sturt University Football Club (CSUFC) has a rich and vibrant history, one which has seen the club proudly represent the student body of Bathurst Campus (also referred to as Mitchell Campus) since the club was established in 1963. CSUFC was formed under the name of Bathurst Teachers College in 1963, making it one of the oldest football clubs within Bathurst. The founding of CSUFC came to fruition with the establishment of the Bathurst District Football Association in 1962.

Due to name changes of the educational institution, the club has adapted its name numerous times to parallel itself with the college it represents. In the year of 1970 Bathurst Teachers College Soccer Club officially adapted its name to Mitchell College Soccer Club.

The year of 1989 saw a change in the name of the institution again with Mitchell College being rebranded to Charles Sturt University. The club ultimately evolved its name to Charles Sturt University Football Club. Even though the club adapted its name, it is also referred to as CSU-Mitchell Football Club throughout the university and within the community of Bathurst as the name ‘Mitchell’ still has a close affiliation with the club and university itself.

Today CSUFC plays with both Men’s and Women’s teams which represent Charles Sturt University in the Bathurst District Football Association. The Men’s and Women’s teams are proudly nicknamed the Stags and Vixens and play in the iconic CSU colours of red and white. The clubs motto is “Together As One” which reflects the clubs core values on and off the pitch and the clubs diverse backgrounds which all unite under one banner.
