EHUFCs Goal is to provide a fun, family orientated sporting club that encourages healthy living, participation and making new friends while playing in a team environment, learning and improving their skills in the world game.
Welcome to the Official EDGE HILL UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB website.
Home of the Mighty Tigers.
EHUFC IS A NOT FOR PROFIT COMMUNITY ORGANISATION.
EHUFC is a Level 2 accredited "GOOD SPORTS CLUB" and Level One in the FFAs "National Club Accreditation Scheme (NCAS)". We have also achieved level 4 with the Cairns Regional Councils "Go Clubs" accreditation scheme.
The 2017 committee would like to welcome all new players and former players along with all of the parents and carers to the Edge Hill United Football Club.
We cater for players from ages 3 to senior men’s and ladies teams and all the juniors in between. As the only inner city Senior Football Club in Cairns we have a very multi cultural playing group. With many players from the UK and Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, North Africa and of course Australia. We welcome any players who are keen to play a season of football in Cairns.
HISTORY - Established in 1967. EHUFC has a proud and successful 50 year history. EHUFC have generated some fantastic players over the years with the likes of former Socceroo Coach and player Frank Farina, former Socceroo player and Brisbane Roar Vice Captain Shane Stefanutto and former Socceroo and current Chines Super League player Michael Thwaite all having played for Edge Hill.
MAJOR PROJECTS IN 2016 and 2017 - EHUFC would like to thank the Queensland State Government for their support in granting EHUFC with $100 000 for the lighting upgrade on Field 2 and Field 3 and $100,000 towards our "New Clubhouse Project". EHUFC would also like to thank the Cairns Regional Council for their support and funding of the new toilets and amenities block due to be built between Field 1 and Field 2 in 2017. These two major projects are expected to be completed by June 2017 and will continue to help the EHUFC move forward. This will provide a fantastic facility for our current players and members and will be sure to attract more players to our game. This will also provide other sporting organisations an opportunity to utilise the facilities at Tiger Park to turn this facility into a truly multi purpose sporting venue.
