The club’s mission is for its members to excel at every level of the sport and, to date, it is one of New Zealand’s most successful amateur football clubs with many titles and championships under its belt including several Chatham Cups, Northern Regional titles and National League titles.

The History Of Central United FC
Central, as it was known back in 1962, was established by some immigrants from Croatia and originally, they played in the Northern League’s lower division before they eventually rose through the ranks, eventually becoming a top club by the end of the 1990s.
During the 1980s, the club established their junior section and it was at this point that they began to surge through the grades, spectacularly progressing from the fourth division right up to a prominent spot in the Premier League within just 5 years. It wasn’t long before Central won the 1st Division championship, and then in 1993 they were promoted to the Winfield Superclub competition where they came 5th.
