Hailing from the suburbs of Lens, Victor Mastroianni began his professional career with his hometown club, the Red and Gold in 1977. Lens were playing in the First Division at the time, and this athletic defender made 8 apperances, without ever making it as a first-team regular in the starting line-up. At the end of the 1977/1978 season, the club from the North of France was relegated to Division Two, but Victor Mastroianni would stay on regardless, hoping to get more game-time. Unfortunately for Matroianni, this would not prove to be the case, and he would make one solitary appearance for Lens, and that was to prove to be the final straw for him, and he chose to leave in 1979, signed by Stade Rennais to play at right-back. He was first-choice during his first season with the Red and Blacks, but he would see that role threatened with the emergence of Dufour, who began to get the nod over him. After two seasons at Rennes, and over 50 appearances to his name, he left Rennes to join Le Havre in 1981, where he would become a keystone in the Normandy side's defence for two seasons in the Second Division. In 1983, he signed for Thonon, who were also in the second tier, where he was converted to centre-back. He would stay there until 1985, at which point he moved to Montceau, where he would play until 1989. He ended his playing days with Annecy in Division Two between 1989-1994, and became First Team Manager there between 1994 and 1999, after his club were relegated to Division d'Honneur (DH) as a result of their financial difficulties.
