Initially conceived as the Wirral Wolves in 1984 and converting to the Birkenhead Nighthawks in 1988, the Merseyside Nighthawks have been an established American football presence in Merseyside since 1992. The team has built on the foundations and slowly grew to become one of the more recognisable clubs in the North-West of England.

It was during the 2010s were the Nighthawks really rose to prominence, fuelled by back-to-back promotions and undefeated seasons to ensure the Nighthawk's first season in the Premier North division of the British American Football Association in 2016- where they have since remained. Key members of these teams are still in the building today as coaches and backroom staff, who continue to set the high standards that the Nighthawks demand.

The Merseyside Nighthawks are inclusive and diverse club who are proud of the team they have become. By joining the Merseyside Nighthawks, you don't just join the team, you become a member of our ever-growing family.

If you are willing to put in the effort and take advantage of the quality coaching that we provide, you too could become an experienced and proven member of our club.
