Chester FC

Chester FC is a supporter-owned football club based in Chester. The club was founded in 2010 after Chester City FC was wound up in the High Court. The club, which plays its home games at the Swansway Chester Stadium, began its inaugural season in the Northern Premier League First Division North following a successful appeal to the FA against its initial placement in the North West Counties League. Since forming, Chester FC has been successive league champions of the Northern Premier League First Division North (2010–11), Northern Premier League Premier Division (2011–12) and the Conference North (2012–13). The club currently play in the Vanarama Conference, one league below the Football League.
