Junior female footballers had an experience they'll never forget at Melbourne Victory's most recent home game, as part of the inaugural Victory for Girls tournament.

Brighton Soccer Club and the Bayside Argonauts were successful on the day, with the Brighton girls taking home the title in three different age groups, while the Argonauts won the fourth.

As finalists in the Victory for Girls tournament, the girls represented their clubs on the AAMI Park pitch, moments before Melbourne Victory's Round 21 Hyundai A-League clash in front of 21,638 fans.

The Victory for Girls initiative was developed to celebrate female participation in football and is something the club will look to develop further in future years.

More than 150 girls aged between 8 and 16-years from clubs across Melbourne took part in the Victory for Girls tournament which began on Gosch's Paddock earlier in the afternoon. Teams battled it out on Victory's training ground for a chance to play on one of Melbourne's best sporting surfaces.

Eight teams made the final on AAMI Park, with four matches held across the different age groups.

All participants were presented with a certificate from Melbourne Victory Chairman Anthony Di Pietro and will have memories that will last a lifetime, having played on one of the biggest stages of all.
