Chester City Football Club was an English football team from Chester which played in a variety of leagues between 1885 and 2010. The club which was founded as Chester F.C., joined the Football League in 1931. Over the next eight decades, the club spent most of its time competing in the lower divisions. Its original ground was Sealand Road (1906-1990).

In 1983, the club was renamed Chester City. The club moved to the Deva Stadium in 1992 after its original stadium was sold to developers. Although for two years the club was obliged to play home games at Macclesfield Town's Moss Rose. Chester won the Conference National, their only league title, in 2004.

The club was served a winding-up order by HM Revenue & Customs in January 2010. There had been repeated financial problems during the 2009–10 Conference season, forcing many fixtures to be affected. Although the club was put up for sale, it was suspended from the Conference National for breaches of rules, and expelled in February 2010, all league results for the season being expunged.

With the official winding up of Chester City, supporters immediately began forming a new club. Chester F.C. was officially established in May 2010.
