Fulham FC – Craven Cottage

Category: Football grounds

Fulham Football Club (FFC) are a football team based in Fulham, London. Founded in 1879, they celebrated their 125th anniversary in 2004, and they are in the top tier of English football, the FA Premiership.

Fulham FC are the oldest professional football team in London (usually considered to have been founded in 1879, although some say 1880).

They spent much time in the Old First Division (Premiership) through the 60s, but are yet to gain any major honours, their only FA Cup final appearance being in 1975. But they won qualification to the UEFA Cup in 2002 by winning the Intertoto Cup, beating Bologna F.C. 1909 3-0 in the final.

They currently play at Craven Cottage, their home since 1896, a beautiful riverside ground on the banks of the River Thames in Fulham, having spent two years at Loftus Road while Craven Cottage was undergoing renovations to bring it up to Premier League standards. The club achieved their main aim of avoiding relegation for the 2005/06 season, eventually finishing 12th.
