Tiko United FC is a Cameroonian football club based in Tiko, South West Province. They play in Elite 2 of the Cameroon Association Football.


It was founded in the early 1960s as C.D.C Tiko. During the late 70s and early 80s, its parent company, the Cameroon Development Corporation gradually relinquished sponsorship. Tea cultivation, being the main company product was eventually taken over by a citizen cooperative in Tiko. It was then renamed Tiko United.

In 2009, the club won the Cameroon Première Division for the first time in its history and a place in CAF Champions League in 2010.


The club played his home matches since 2007 in the Stade de Molyko in Buea, which has a capacity of 100.[2] Tiko played previously until 2006 in the Tiko Town Green Stadium, with 10.000 places.
