Wazito Football Club is an association football club based in Nairobi, Kenya. It is owned by Badoer Investments Limited as the majority shareholder.

History
Formation
Wazito Football Club was formed in 2011 by the University of Nairobi soccer team and the alumni members of the soccer team. Experienced players mentor the students on career paths and life experience. The network has created morally upright students who have got jobs upon graduation.

After training together with the students for some time the alumni members decided they could form one strong team to compete in the league. In order to build a team identity the 2011 season Wazito played in a lot of friendlies against the league sides and participated in tournaments.

Wazito currently plays in the Kenya Premier League of the Federation of Kenya Football (FKF), the first tier league in the country.

2012
In 2012 Wazito debuted in the Nairobi County football league, the fifth tier of the Kenyan Football League system. It was a good start for Wazito and they managed to win the league and earn promotion to the Provincial league.

2013
The Nairobi Provincial league was the next hurdle for Wazito. It was another good campaign and a nervy end to the season where Wazito edged off Kangemi United on penalties to emerge as the Nairobi Provincial League winners. This meant back to back league titles for Wazito and promotion to the FKF Division one.

2014
FKF Division one was a notch higher as it involved a lot of travel across a number of counties. However, with adequate preseason training and some new signings to beef up the squad it was another good campaign for Wazito. Wazito won the league convincingly and were crowned champions with two games to spare. The Kenyan National Super League was the next stop.

2015
In 2015, the club played in the National Super League, the third tier of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) league. It was a tough league which also meant extensive travels throughout the country for the team. For the first time, the team did not win the league but came second after Kenya Police. This earned the two teams promotions to second-division league of FKF.

2016
The second-tier league was renamed National Super League (NSL) by the new Football Kenya Federation. Wazito was among 20 clubs that played in the league. It turned out to be the toughest league for the team. At the end of the season, Wazito ended at position 11 with 51 points. The club will therefore still play in the same league in the 2017 season.

2018
Wazito was promoted to the Kenya Premier League, the main league of the Football Kenya Federation. Wazito was among two clubs that were promoted to play in the top-tier league.

2018/19
Wazito was relegated back to the second-division-tier league, the National Super League.

2019
In October 2018, Badoer Investments founder and CEO Ricardo Badoer became the President of Wazito FC after officially taking over the club and promised to build the club a stadium and sports academy.

2019
In June 2019, Wazito FC were crowned Champions of the National Super League for the 2018/19 season. They earned automatic promotion to the top tier Kenya Premier League (KPL).
