Cadbury Athletic was formed in 1994 and immediately gained entry to the Midland Combination Division Three. The club is affiliated with the Cadbury factory based in Bournville, using the company's logo as its badge and even playing in Cadbury's corporate colours of purple and white.
Cadbury finished ninth in their first season in Division Three but were nonetheless promoted to Division Two. In 2000–01 they were promoted to Division One and then in 2004–05 gained promotion to the Premier Division, where they remained until 2012 when they resigned from the Premier Division due to a difficulty with their ground rental agreement with Alvechurch.
In the 2006–07 season they entered the FA Vase for the first time, followed a year later by their debut in the FA Cup. Cadbury Athletic also run a Reserve Team which play in the Midland Combination Reserve League Division 2 and have recently started an Over 35's side which play in the Central Warwickshire Over 35's league.
Cadbury’s won the Midland Combination 1st Division in 2013/14 and with it promotion back to the Premier Division. This necessitated a ground-share at Pilkington’s Triplex ground in King’s Norton where the Club has remained until this day.
