On April 15th, 2007, Nigeria Ports Authority (NPA) Management agreed terms with Delta State for the acquisition of the NPA FC and thus came the birth of Warri Wolves Football Club also known as the Sea-siders. NPA Fc was hitherto a Lagos based club but the new owners switched the base to the port city of Warri in Delta State.

It had to initially operate from Oleh while renovation work was being carried out at the 20, 000 capacity Warri Township Stadium which was commissioned in 2000. Wolves started the climb to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) from the Nigeria National League (NNL) in the 2008/09 season and completed the climb that very season after emerging champions of the NNL division 1B.

In the NPFL, 2013 stands out as the year of near glory for Warri Wolves FC, with now late Solomon Ogbeide as the head coach, they were beaten to the title by former African champions, Enyimba in both the league and the Federations Cup. In players like Sunday Mba, Daniel Akpeyi, Gbolahan Salami, Oghenekaro Etebo, Abu Azeez and Chigozie Agbim and some others, Wolves had a generation of players that most made it to the first team of the Super Eagles and later joined clubs in Europe.

Warri Wolves FC has enjoyed one CAF Champions League appearance in 2016 and three CAF Confederation Cup appearances in 2010, 2012 and 2014. Post 2014 saw a downturn in the performance of the club attributed to poor finances, changes in Management and subsequent exit of 16 regular squad members.

Major fallout of this was the club’s relegation to the NNL in the 2015/16 season but like a Phoenix, Wolves roared back to the NPFL in the 2019/20 season Wolves, even as a lower division club enjoyed a pedigree of parading some fine players that made national team squads. Those players contributed to the promotion of the club to the NPFL in 2014/15 season and they include ex-super Eagles defender, Azubuike Egwueke, midfielder, Fegor Ogude, strikers, Anthony Ujah, and Nosa Igiebor. It has also enjoyed the services of celebrated Coaches like Lawrence Akpokona, late Ogbeide, Paul Aigbogun, Belgian, Maurice Cooreman and a host of others.
