Buttevant AFC

Buttevant Athletic Football Club (AFC) is a County Cork soccer club. Established in 1976 the club began playing its' soccer matches on a pitch provided by the Stack family in Bregogue. Soon after this matches were played on the farm of Mr. David Magner one mile from Buttevant. After some years Buttevant AFC played football matches on pitches situated on the property of Mr. M. Regan in Spittal before returning to the Magner pitch for a few seasons. Finally the soccer club moved to its' own grounds for the football season starting September 1997.

In 1994 Buttevant acquired six acres of land at New Street for development. Cumulative expenditure on the development of a dedicated footballing facility exceeds €150,000 to date. Development included the provision of two regulation size football pitches including extensive drainage, an all-weather soccer pitch and fitted dressing rooms.

Buttevant AFC registered their first success on the football pitch by winning the Cork AUL Division 3 in the 1982/83 season.

In 1999 Buttevant AFC Ladies Club was formed.

During November 2001 the soccer club hosted a UEFA Under 19 Championship match between Croatia and Latvia.
