In 2000 the 'Whites' and the 'Blues' football clubs merged and, commencing with the 2001 season, the 'Whites' began playing as the "Monash Blues" side in the VAFA's Club XVIII competition.
The Blues currently play in Premier B of the VAFA, fielding teams in the Seniors, Reserves, Thirds (the 'Whites'), Club XVIII (2) and Under 19s.
- Opening its doors to its first students at the Wellington Road, Clayton site in 1961, Monash University is now Australia's largest and most international university. With over 63,000 students, the university boasts five campuses in its home state of Victoria, a campus in Malaysia and one in South Africa, as well as centres in the Italy, India and China. The university's original Clayton campus, the largest of its eight, is home to the 'Blues' and the 'Whites'.
