Buffalo City FC was an American soccer team based in Buffalo, New York, United States. Founded in 2008, the team played only one season (2009) in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), a national premier league at the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, in the Eastern Keystone Division. They sold their rights as a club in the league to another group in Western New York, who then formed FC Buffalo.

The team played all its 2009 home games at the stadium on the campus of Nichols School. The team's colors were black, burgundy and gold.


Buffalo City FC was founded in 2008 and was divided into five integral parts, (First Team, Youth Training/Academy, International Development, Youth Camps and Clinics, and Community Outreach). Buffalo City FC also had its own European training academy, AFA Marbella, located in Marbella, Spain. After just one season in the NPSL, in which the team finished second in the Keystone Conference, Buffalo City FC sold their franchise rights to FC Buffalo, who took their place in the NPSL.
