Harbour View Football Club is a Jamaican football club based in Kingston that currently plays in the Red Stripe Premier League.

Harbour View is nicknamed the Stars of the East or Easters and play their home games at Harbour View Stadium.

History

Founded along with the Harbour View community in the 1960s, the professional club, Harbour View F.C., was officially established on March 4, 1974. Then, 25 years later, the club was officially incorporated as a limited liability company and was the first Jamaica football club to become incorporated.

Harbour View F.C. has developed a reputation for being the first in Jamaica in many aspects. The Stars of the East became the first club to have an official website, and the first to build a world-class football stadium. Ricardo Gardner was the first Jamaican league player to transfer to a major European league after joining Bolton Wanderers in 1998.[1] Club management is also setting the pace in bringing true professionalism to Jamaica's football landscape. In addition, at the beginning of the 2006 season, the club's equipment was sponsored by Adidas. The club generates revenue through sponsorships, match tickets, and other businesses such as stadium bars and Western Union.
