Northern Tigers FC is a semi-professional soccer club based in the Hornsby area of Sydney. The Northern Tigers enter teams in the Football NSW National Premier Leagues NSW Men's 2 (Men and Boys), National Premier Leagues NSW Women's 2 (Women and Girls), FNSW Skills Acquisition Program (Under 9, 10 and 11) and the NSW Futsal Super League.
Home games are played at Mills Park, Asquith with occasional games at Parklands Oval, Mt. Colah and the Lindfield Campus of the University of Technology, Sydney. They are one of 19 "feeder" clubs that maintain a working relationship with A-League club, Sydney FC.
Ku-ring-gai & District Soccer Association purchased a NSW Soccer Federation Division 1 license from the Balmain Tigers in 2002. The name was then changed to Northern Tigers and Northern Tigers FC was established.
In 2003 they were premiers of FNSW Men's Division 1 and were promoted to the FNSW Super League (now National Premier Leagues NSW Men's 2). In 2007 they were Premiers of Super League but declined promotion to FNSW Premier League (now National Premier Leagues NSW Men's 1). In 2010 they were Champions of FNSW Super League after defeating St. George FC 4-0 in the Grand Final.
Northern Tigers FC players wear white with bottle green when playing at home and purple with white when playing away.
