Newport County Association Football Club is a professional football club in Newport, South Wales. The club's usual home colors are amber shirts and black shorts. In the 1980s they suffered financial difficulties with a double relegation costing them their Football League place in 1988 and the club went out of business in February 1989.

The club reformed but were initially unable to play at their home ground at their then home ground of Somerton Park, so picked up the nickname of the "Exiles." They immediately won the Hellenic League in 1989-90 and were promoted out of the Southern League Midland Division in 1994-95. While playing at Newport Stadium, they were relegated from the Premier Division in 1997, before winning promotion out of the Midland Division again in 1998-99. Placed in the Conference South in 2004, they went on to be crowned champions in 2009-10 and after moving to Rodney Parade in 2012, they returned to the Football League following a 25-year absence after winning the Conference National play-off final in 2013.
