Be part of the Christchurch United dream

Christchurch United FC is the most successful football club in Canterbury and is making great strides to once again become the most famous football brand in the country.

Since its formation in 1970 Christchurch United captains have lifted six National League trophies (1973, 1975, 1978, 1987, 1988, 1991) and six Chatham Cups (1972, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1989 and 1991).

Christchurch United has recently joined forces with the acclaimed Christchurch Football Academy programme and from 2017 the merged entity will be based at the world-class Christchurch Football Centre on Yaldhurst Road.

The state-of-the art artificial pitches, top quality natural pitches, fit-for-purpose floodlights, 500-seat grandstand will soon be flanked by new offices, changing rooms and a café that will create the best football environment for players, parents and supporters, 12 months a year.

Christchurch United FC is proud to be one of the few clubs in the country with three internationally-licenced elite coaches with extensive pedigree in youth development. They will provide a huge variety of programmes, from intensive elite Academy development to social and community programmes for all ages.

Our professional coaches will personally deliver the curriculum but also run a coaching education programme to enhance the skills and qualifications of the club’s volunteer coaches.

Christchurch United FC has set itself extremely high standards to deliver a world-class football experience, both on and off the pitch, from our elite players, the First Kicks toddlers to and the weekend warriors battling in the masters grades.

Don’t hesitate and register for Christchurch United Football Club for the 2017 season or come to visit our facility to see what is possible for young, and older, footballers, right here in Christchurch. Our training sessions start on January 23 and the trials for our top teams and Academy squads will run from February 20 to March 3.
