Newport County Association Football Club are a football club based in Newport, South Wales, who play in the English football league system. Newport County were Welsh Cup winners in 1980 and subsequently reached the quarter-finals of the European Cup Winners' Cup. The club was relegated from the Football League in 1988 and went out of business in February 1989. The club re-formed shortly afterwards and entered the English league pyramid system at a much lower level. In 2010 the club achieved promotion to the Conference National, the same level they played at prior to bankruptcy in 1989. The club's only match against Chelsea was in the 1974-75 League Cup, Chelsea winning 4-2 at Stamford Bridge.
