Thika United Football Club is an association football club based in Thika, Kenya, which currently competes in the Kenyan Premier League, the top tier of the Kenyan football league system. They play their home games at the Thika Sub-County Stadium.
The club was formed in 2000 as Beirut FC. The following year, after being promoted to the Nationwide League (second level), it adopted new name, Medisca Thika, after its then sponsors. The current name (Thika United FC) has been in use since 2003, which was also its first year in the top flight under the sponsorship of Brookside Dairies. Midfielder Matthew Dickinson hit the headlines of local and some national newspapers when he left local team Brislington Badgers in Bristol, England, to travel to Kenya to gain nationality and happened to earn himself a lengthy contract with Thika United.
To quote the club chairman Elio Lolli, "Bold ambitions indeed , but whilst Thika United is a relatively new name, KTM Thika once provided glory to the town of Thika as it proved to be a dominant force in the 80s. Thika United intend to finish the job and achieve that elusive Championship and much, much more."
