Hawke’s Bay United (HBU) was founded in 2005 under the name of Napier City Soccer, as the summer entity of Central League club Napier City Rovers. In the inaugural NZFC season (2004/2005), they finished 5th out of 8. The following season, Napier City Soccer was renamed to their current moniker of "Hawke's Bay United" and changed their kit colour to the Hawke's Bay provincial sporting colours of white and black, as part of an effort to greater represent the greater East Coast instead of just the city of Napier. The rebranded Hawkes Bay United finished last in the season standings.
