History[edit]

Manurewa AFC was formed by the merger of Tramways (1929 Chatham Cup winner) and another club named Manurewa. The merged entity initially used the portmanteau name of Tramurewa, during which time the club won the 1931 Chatham Cup. Tramuwera reverted to the name of Manurewa in 1959, the name currently used by the club.

Manurewa competed in the New Zealand National Soccer League from 1979 to 1992, finishing as champions in 1983.
