Port Hill United Football Club was founded in 1975 and has evolved from a dozen cricket players (Napier Technical Cricket Club) to a football club with 100 members today.
Originally named Napier Technical Soccer Club and based at Whitmore Park (Napier), the club decided to relocate their members and set up their own clubrooms at South Pond, in Ahuriri (Napier) in 1983. In 1984, Napier Tech became an independant identity and unanimously changed its club name to Port Hill United Soccer Club. In 2010 the name was updated to Port Hill United Football Club in keeping with New Zealand Football.
In 1992, Port Hill seized the opportunity to relocate and purchased a facility at Marewa Park (Napier), which is arguably one of the best soccer pitches in the Hawke's Bay region and to which the club is currently based today. Port Hill has long prided itself with an attitude towards pro-activeness, innovation and continuous growth for nearly 30 years.
A consistently strong membership of loyal supporters is sheer proof of Port Hill's willingness to stay competitive, not only on the field, but also by making our facilities available to the outside community for various events, whether it be for business or social events. This not only adds to our professional profile, but expands the volume of exposure to our existing sponsors.
