History of the Fulham FC
Fulham Football Club, commonly known as “The Cottagers,” is a professional football club based in London. The team was founded in 1879 and had been playing top-flight English football since the foundation of the Premier League in 1992. Fulham has enjoyed an illustrious history over its 140 years of existence and is one of only five clubs to have played continuously at the highest level throughout this period.
Since joining the Premier League, Fulham has had several successful seasons, including a seventh-place finish during their first season (2001/02) and achieving UEFA Europa League qualification twice (2009/10 & 2018/19). In 2008 they reached their highest-ever league position by finishing 7th again but also reaching 8th place on two other occasions (2004/05 & 2006/07). They were also involved in some memorable cup runs, most notably reaching both semi-finals of domestic cups within three seasons between 2002-2005 - something no other side achieved during this time frame!
Despite being relegated from the Premier League after 13 consecutive years at England's top table last season, there is still plenty for fans to be excited about Fulham FC's prospects: promotion back into the English Footballs elite division looks very likely given recent form under new manager Scott Parker who has led his side on an impressive unbeaten run so far this campaign which could see them return sooner rather than later! Furthermore, off-field developments such as stadium expansion plans are all signs that things can only get better for The Cottagers moving forward - making it an exciting time for any fan looking ahead toward what lies ahead for one of England’s oldest teams.
