Background

Formed 1939

The club was formed in 1939 as Sydney Hakoah by members of the Sydney Jewish community. They were founder members of the National Soccer League and played as Eastern Suburbs (1977-1979) and then Sydney City (1979-1987). One of the most successful sides in New South Wales and interstate competitions in the 1960's and early 1970's Sydney City were also one of the main instigators for the establishment of a national league.

A foundation member of the NSL, Sydney City were also its most dominant side in the competition's first decade, winning four titles, including three in a row from 1980-1982, and finishing below third only once. However despite this level of success, crowds were perennially low, and even though they were one of the sides retained for 1987, after the NSL scrapped the split conference system at the end of 1986, Sydney City withdrew from the NSL one round into the 1987 season.

Since 1988 they have competed in the NSW State League.
