The Nightcliff Football Club has competed in the NTFL competition in Darwin, Northern Territory since it entered as the Works & Housing team in 1950.
The club has its own home ground at the Nightcliff Oval (PSCBM Insurance Oval) situated adjacent to the Nightcliff Sports Club and are better known as the Tigers these days.
The club was originally formed as Works and Housing Football Club in 1950 and competed in the 1950/51 NTFL season; the club was renamed Nightcliff Football Club in 1963/64.
In the early 1970s the football club established the Nightcliff Sports Club which is now an icon of the suburb and the football club is the proud senior affiliate of the Sports Club.
Stemming from a strong junior program and a commitment to excellence, the Tigers have been successful in not only claiming back-to-back Men's Premier League titles in 2018/19 and 2019/20 but by also picking up a host of other grand final appearances and premierships across the different divisions.
