Takapuna is a semi-professional football (soccer) club based in Takapuna, New Zealand. They compete in the Lotto Sport Italia NRFL Division 1.


The club was founded as Takapuna City AFC in 1964 by Mr and Mrs Don Quinnell as a junior club, with the first senior men's teams being added in 1967. By 1971 they were playing in the Northern league first division, a competition which they won at their first attempt. They entered the New Zealand National Soccer League for the first time in 1980, and reached the Chatham Cup Semi-finals the same year, their best ever result.
