Upper Hutt City Football, as the club is now known, was formed following the amalgamation of three separate football clubs.
Club football originated in Upper Hutt with the formation of Upper Hutt United in the 1920s and Tararua United formed as an alternative Club in the 1970s. Upper Valley Wanderers formed in the 1980s as an independent Club for Women’s Football.
In the late 1990s the three Clubs amalgamated, with new Clubrooms built at Harcourt Park, as the Tararua Sports Club. A meeting convened in 1998 agreed that all football teams would play as Upper Hutt City Soccer in acknowledgement of the club’s links with and support from the local Upper Hutt City community.
Upper Hutt City Soccer became Upper Hutt City Football in 2011.
Construction of an astro-turf facility at Maidstone Park began December 2011, with members of Upper Hutt City Football formally agreeing at a Special General Meeting late 2012, to move its primary base from Harcourt Park to Maidstone Turf for the start of the 2013 season. The Club will retain Harcourt Park clubrooms for this playing season.
Upper Hutt City Football provides competitive and social football for 800+ male & female players in the following groups: First Kicks (4-6 years), Junior (7-12), Youth (13-19), Senior Men’s & Women’s, Masters (35yrs+)
To provide (and continue to provide) football to the community the club relies heavily on the support of its members and the wider community. Revenue derived from Members fees, Sponsorship, Grants, Bar & Kitchen services and other fundraising activities. Expenses are incurred for affiliation fees, playing gear, coaching and tournament fees. With the increase in compliance and need for an increased level of coaching and equipment requirements, each year we face ever-increasing demands on our finances.
With an aim in mind to make Football available to all who wish to play, regardless of the cost involved and to also provide the best possible services to our Football Community we are pleased to offer the following sponsorship packages.
With these packages, we also aim to provide a better service to our sponsors and hope that, as a sponsor, you will receive the recognition you are after. We hope that being a big part of our community, we’ll play a big role in helping yours. View more information on Upper Hutt City Football
