Cockburn City Soccer Club is an Australian soccer club currently playing in the National Premier Leagues Western Australia. They play their home games at Dalmatinac Park and train at Beale Park.


Cockburn City Soccer Club's origin goes back to 1929 when they were known as Spearwood Rovers, in 1966 they amalgamated with Britannia to become Cockburn United. This club split in the early 1960s to become two separate clubs, Spearwood Dalmatinacs and Cockburn United. The two clubs enjoyed success in the period after, with facilities close to each other at Dalmatinac Park and Beale Park. The clubs reunited in 1998 under the negotiations of Angelko Petkovich and John Mijacika and became Cockburn City Soccer Club. The facilities at both parks are still used by the club's Junior and Senior teams.

In 2016 Cockburn City qualified for the FFA Cup round of 32 after beating Stirling Lions in the final qualification round.[1] The Burn were drawn against National Premier Leagues Victoria side Melbourne Knights FC, with the fixture scheduled to be played at Knights Stadium in Melbourne on 10 August 2016. The Knights ran out 2–1 victors on a rainy night in North Sunshine, with Stipo Andrijašević scoring a 70th minute winner after David Araya equalised, cancelling out Jacob Colosimo's opener.[2]
