|Full name||Napier City Rovers|
Napier, New Zealand
|League||Central Premier League|
The team was founded in 1973 via a merger of Napier Rovers and Napier City.
Napier City Rovers have won New Zealand's premier knockout football competition (the Chatham Cup) five times, in 1985, 1993, 2000, 2002, and 2019 won the old New Zealand National Soccer League in 1989, 1993, 1998, and 2000. They represented New Zealand at the Oceania Club Championship in 2001, finishing third.
The Hawke's Bay region, of which Napier is a part, were represented by Napier City Soccer in the first year of New Zealand's new Football Championship in the summer of 2004, the only region that was not represented by an amalgamated franchise. That changed the following year with the change of name also to Hawke's Bay United. As with all teams making up the new franchises, they continue to compete in local winter football leagues, and also in the Chatham Cup.
