Filopoulos has been in the role since 2015 but leaves the club in an uncertain position, with Perth still seeking a replacement for sacked-coach Kenny Lowe. 

Perth finished eighth this season, sparking an overhaul at the West Australian club that Filopoulos was disappointed not to oversee.

“It was with heavy heart that I tendered my resignation as CEO of Perth Glory Football club on Sunday when I met with Chairman and Owner, Tony Sage,” he said.

“This decision was not an easy one for my family, however, we have decided that after three wonderful seasons, it’s time to return home to Melbourne.

“I have been privileged to work with some amazing and dedicated people at the club and am very appreciative of the support that I have received from Tony, the staff, volunteers, players, coaches, 9,368 members, fans and sponsors.

“I would like to thank Tony and his family for giving me the opportunity to lead the Hyundai A-League’s oldest club and wish them all the best for their future endeavours.”
