Early Years and Seletao
For every yin, there is a yang. The workers of Avidia United have theirs in the upper-crust, middle-class Avidia City. Originally formed as a purely recreational side called Recreativa Avidia, the side changed their name on entry to the KLF Overleague, first edition. During the inter-league hiatus, however, the club was taken over by Avidia-based airline, Avidair.
A disatrous Season One was followed by the arrival of Seletao, who converted six points into 44, only goal difference keeping them from sixth spot. The renaissance continued into Season Three, with City beating their rivals (then still plain old AFC Avidia) in the final of the KFA Cup. Eventually, City slipped back into their old ways near the foot of the table, a habit that resulted in their relegation at the end of Season 6. Seletao, too, had gone, to become manager of Rejistania. The relegation also saw Avidair divesting their interest in the club, selling their stake to a consortium of Hispanic businessmen.
Bouncing Back and Marching On
A convenient hiatus previous to Season 7 allowed the club to return to the top flight through some back-door politicking, and the club finished third that year. A sixth followed, albeit behind the now-renamed United, and then fifth in Season 9 - a season that saw their cross-city rivals relegated, and a definitive return to the top of the Avidian heap. It also saw entry into the eighth Globe Cup, where they progressed through the three qualifying rounds to reach the group phase. The combined might of Argos LP, KT Hotspur, and Oillid CE saw the Krytenian side finish bottom with just a single point to their name.
Season 11 saw them finish fifth again, and that meant another sojourn into the Globe Cup. Again, City had to come through from the very first qualifying stage; again, they progressed through all three preliminary ties and into the group draw. This time, however, there was no embarrassing exit as they finished second in the group and made it through to the knockout stages. Against Olympique Protectorat, however, City were thumped 4-1 in the first leg at the New City Stadium, and never recovered, with the team from Ad'ihan going through six-three on aggregate.
The final season of the Overleague brought Avidia's greatest moment. They finished second in the league, granting them a place in the Champions' Cup for the first time. As previously, City started from the very first stage of the competition; however, after defeating Jaargusmutz FC of Swartaz and Aguazul-based 12 de noviembre, they were narrowly eliminated in the final qualifying round, at the expense of Seoan Gukjei.
The O-League Era
The momentum from the last Overleague season had well and truly subsided by the time the first O-League season came about. An eighth-place finish was all City got for their troubles...but things were about to get much, much worse. City were relegated to O-League Two with a game to spare as the wheels fell drastically off their season. Three whole seasons in the wilderness followed, before second place and promotion back to the top flight under Alex Graham, returning to mid-table with a tenth place finish in Season VI.

City is a simple nickname which the club has adopted. United's nickname for them is unprintable, however it does rhyme with "City"...
