About us

Inaugurated in 2004, Central Coast Mariners FC is proud to be the first ever professional sporting entity to represent the Central Coast region on a national and international sporting stage. As a foundation team in the Hyundai A-League, we are one of ten sides competing annually for the ultimate prize in Australian Club football.

Since our inception we have worked diligently with the local community, seeking positive outcomes both on and off the football pitch. We regularly pledge our support to a variety of initiatives that we believe enhance not only our Club brand, but also the lives of people within the Central Coast community.

On the pitch, Central Coast Mariners have been one of the most successful teams in the relatively short history of the Hyundai A-League. With one Hyundai A-League Championship, two Hyundai A-League Premierships, four Hyundai A-League Grand Final appearances and three AFC Champions League campaigns already to our name, our record is strong, and our future bright.
