Canberra City SC

Canberra City SC

Canberra City Soccer Club, also known for some time as the Canberra Arrows, is an Australian football (soccer) club based in Canberra in the ACT. It currently participates in the ACT Premier League and formerly competed in the National Soccer League from 1977 to 1986.

National Soccer League

Canberra City entered the new national competition for the inaugural season in 1977 as the only team representing the ACT. Home games were played at the newly constructed Bruce Stadium. The club remained competitive throughout its tenure in the league, but had limited success being unable to reach the finals series in any season. The most successful seasons were in 1981 with a fifth-placed finish, and in 1985 finishing sixth in the Northern Conference, missing out on the finals series on goal difference to St George. A restructure of the national league for the 1987 season saw Canberra culled from the competition.
