Brechin City Football Club is a Scottish football team based in Brechin, Angus. They are members of the Scottish Football League and play in the Second Division in the 2008/09 season.

They were founded in 1906 through the amalgamation of two local junior sides - Brechin Harp and Brechin Hearts - when a deputation from the Forfarshire Football Association met local sportsmen in the Temperance Hall in City Road, and after some persuasion, it was decided that a Senior club was advisable. The team was admitted to the Scottish league in 1923. Brechin currently play at Glebe Park, which has a capacity of 3,960 (1,519 seated) and is famous for the hedge that runs alongside one side of the pitch.

David Will, a former Chairman of the club, was one of the Vice-Presidents of FIFA.

Last year the club celebrated their centenary year and played a centenary match against Coca Cola Championship side Ipswich Town at Glebe Park.

Last season Brechin City made the Second Division Playoffs, where they lost 6-1 on aggregate to Airdrie United.

On 31st January 2008, Brechin City were thrown out of the Scottish Cup after fielding two inelgible players in their 2-1 fourth round replay win over Hamilton Academical. Hamilton took their place in the fifth round.Cite web | url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/scot_cups/7215487.stm | title=Brechin ejected from Scottish Cup | publisher=BBC Sport | month=January | year=2008 | accessdate=2008-01-31 ]
