Gombak United Football Club is a professional football club which plays in Singapore's S.League.

History[edit]

Prior to joining the S.League, the club was known as Redhill Rangers FC.

From 1998 to 2002, the club played their S.League home games at the Bukit Gombak Stadium before pulling out of the S.League at the end of the 2002 season due to financial difficulties.

Gombak United rejoined the S.League in 2006 and moved their home games to Jurong West Stadium, but pulled out of the S.League again during the 2013 season after seven seasons due to reduced takings. The club has indicated its intentions to rejoin the S.League in 2015.
