Founded in 2008, the Melbourne Heart made their A-League debut in the 2010-11 season, becoming the eleventh club to participate in the competition.
Despite the team finishing in eighth place, the season was a largely considered success due to solid crowd attendances and the beginning of an exciting rivalry with the Melbourne Victory. Having occupied sixth place for much of the season, a seven game winless streak towards the end of their campaign meant that they would miss out on playing finals football.
Under the guidance of John van’t Schip, the club will look to improve during their second season in the A-League.
