Northcliff United was formed in 2017 after the Florian Republic's Micrasian bid was accepted. It came second in the inaugural Florian Premier League season, therefore qualifying for the AEFA Cup. On July 15th, 2017, the team was moved to the southern town of Oldhaven due to the Xhusor War. After the war, it returned to Northcliff, however, it was forced to play in its reserve team's stadium after the main stadium was heavily damaged. On the 29th August, it eventually returned after renovations were completed. From the 2018–19 Super League Football season, the team will move out of Northcliff Arena whilst it is being demolished and reconstructed. The team will play matches at Northcliff Stadium, the largest stadium on Micras. On the 16th August 2018, Northcliff United appointed former Senya boss, Draco Sanchez after Josh Harper's contract ended. On the 9th March, Northcliff United won the inaugural Super League Football season after a record-breaking thirty game winning streak. In the same season, United in its first ever AEFA Champions' League campaign reached the semi-finals only to be agonisingly knocked out by an injury time goal by Plava Zvezda Grendbej. On May 18th 2019, the club won their first ever Florian Cup after beating Dragonmoor FC 3-2 after extra-time in the what is regarded as the most thrilling cup final in Florian history.
