Background

Formed 1966

The club was formed in 1966 by Macedonian migrants in Newcastle, New South Wales. Initially the club was formed to have a casual game of football with friends and family. From these humble beginnings Broadmeadow Magic has emerged as one of the premier clubs of NNSWF since its promotion to the top flight in 1995.

The club saw its first action on 20 March 1967 when they traveled to Evans Park to face Cardiff Workers RSL. The hosts were upset however, with Macedonia winning the match, 2-1. Throughout the years, Broadmeadow have gone through a series of name changes. The club was known as Broadmeadow United from 1971 until 1974 and then enjoyed a period of success in the 1970s as Hamilton Red Star. In 1975, Red Star was promoted to the NSW Football Federation 4th division, the 3rd division in 1976, the 2nd division in 1978 and finally the 1st Division in 1980. By 1985, Red Star was relegated back to the 2nd division, and had reverted to its original name, Newcastle Macedonia. During 10 years of competing in the 2nd division, Newcastle Macedonia won the league title twice.

In 1995, Newcastle Macedonia was finally promoted back to the highest flight in New South Wales, the NBN State Football League. The club made its final name change to its current, Broadmeadow Magic FC, but struggled in its first 2 years in the new league. In 1997 the club claimed their first league title. Broadmeadow Magic remained successful in the first decade of the 2000s and claimed their third league title in 2003 , the club's first grand final title in 2004, and both titles in 2005. In recent years, Broadmeadow won its 5th league title in 2008, but finished 3rd in the league in 2009.

Since promotion 1995 the club has continued to expand with the development of the Magic Park complex in 2000.

The club now competes in the Northern NSW Premier League.
