Christchurch United Football Club

Welcomes You

Christchurch United Are Innovators
Christchurch United is a proud Christchurch Football Club with a strong and successful history. The club was formed as a merger of several Christchurch clubs in the early 1970s.

It was one of the founding clubs of the NZ National Soccer League in 1970. Over the years the club have won six National League Titles, six English Cups and seven Chatham Cups, including the two famous doubles in 1975 and in 1991.

The Club produced a number of great players including 44 who played for All Whites. Steve Sumner and Ryan Nelsen were the captains of NZ National teams at the 1982 and 2010 World Cups. All these legend players wore blue and white uniform of United in the prime of their careers.

In 1995 association of football reporters recognised Christchurch United as the best NZ club for 1970-1995.

In 2016 Christchurch United cemented the future of the Club after merging with the rapidly growing Christchurch Football Academy (CFA) who were based at the new state-of-the-art Football Centre. The merger between CFA and CUFC in 2016 has reignited the legacy.

In 2022, our mens senior first team won the Southern League for the first time in 24 years and joined the National League for the first time in 30 years. Our Womens first team won the Championship in the same year.

In 2023, our mens senior first team won the Southern League again and for the first time since 1991 won the Chatham Cup.

Since 2019 we have had 14 Academy players make their debut for the mens senior team. Together we share a strong vision and passion for the Club and Academy future development.

Our dream is to establish a modern successful multi-sport club. This club will be based in the state-of-the-art facility, supported by qualified coaches and staff to secure future growth. This will create a family friendly environment for everyone to enjoy.

Our youth is the next generation of champions and more importantly, the next generation of New Zealanders.

We promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and the development of life skills and values for our members.
Our Values
From respecting yourself first to respecting others, we grow a sense of community and responsibility in everything we aspire to achieve.

Respect means treating everyone involved fairly because we all can learn from each other. Likewise, it means treating facilities and the gear with respect and care.
Discipline is one of the keys to success in sports and in life. Consistent, repetitive execution of simple steps every day is the foundation of skill development and future success.

Our simple steps include training to master the game, mental preparation, healthy eating, participation and learning.
Adequate understanding of every situation and your surroundings, assessment of your strengths & weaknesses, and acting based on your conclusions.

These are equally valuable in football as well as anywhere in life.
Passion is the reflection of the love of what you do, and doing what you love. Our passion is football. We love the game and everything around it.

Passion compels you to take risks and push you past your current limits so you can achieve more.
Responsibility is delivering on your promise consistently with a commitment to completion.

Responsibility is about being accountable for the consequences of your actions.
Unity is about people with a common goal - being proud, loyal, and working together to achieve it. It translates to the feeling of pride and loyalty that exists among all members of the team.

It is the “togetherness” that makes everyone want to do well.
