About Fulham Football Club
Fulham Football Club was formed in 1879 as a local boys’ church side, Fulham St Andrew’s. The oldest of London’s first-class clubs, Fulham FC has a long and colourful history, spanning over 140 years, and is rightly positioned as London’s Original Football Club with its home, Craven Cottage, having hosted matches since 1896.
Promotion to the Premier League was first achieved in 2001 and the team remained in England’s top division until 2013. The Club reached the final of the inaugural Europa League in 2010, losing to Atletico Madrid 2-1 in extra-time.
Fulham FC Chairman Shahid Khan, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League, purchased the Club in 2013.
The Club was promoted to the Premier League this summer (2020) by winning the Championship Play-Off Final against Brentford at Wembley Stadium.
Under the guidance of Head Coach Scott Parker, the team’s first match of the 2020-21 Premier League campaign is against Arsenal at Craven Cottage.”
