History of the Luton Town FC
Luton Town Football Club is a professional football club based in Luton, Bedfordshire, England. The team was founded in 1885 and plays its home matches at Kenilworth Road. They are one of the most successful teams in English football history and have been playing top-flight football since their promotion to the Premier League for the 2020/21 season.
The Hatters, affectionately known by fans, have had an illustrious past with many highs and lows. In 1959 they became founder members of Division Four (now called League Two), where they spent eight seasons before being promoted to Division Three (now called League One). From there, it took them nearly 30 years before they finally achieved promotion back into top-tier English Football when Kenny Dalglish's side won both Division Two titles during his tenure as manager from 1985–86 onwards.
After that success came more trophies, including two FA Cup semi-finals appearances during the 1990s, followed by winning both divisional playoff finals against Leyton Orient & Scunthorpe United, respectively, which saw them gain entry into the Championship for the 2006/07 season after spending over 20 years out of second tier league competition, their stay lasted four campaigns. Still, it was eventually relegated back down due to financial difficulties caused mainly by former owners who ran the club and almost bankrupted it until the current regime stepped up to take control in 2013.
Now under new ownership, Luton Town FC has achieved consecutive promotions culminating 2020/21 campaign, where they finished third place table and earned a return Premier League for the first time since the 1992–93 season! This will be an exciting opportunity for all involved to see how far we can go with the talented squad assembled by current management staff to lead the charge towards staying competitive among the best sides world come the 2021 – 2022 term!

1885 - Present / Luton Town Football Club
The Hatters - Luton Town Football Club is one of England's oldest and most successful clubs, having been around since 1885. The club has a long and storied history deep in the local community. Their nickname, ‘The Hatters,’ comes from their association with hat-making, an industry that flourished in Luton during the 19th century. It is believed that many of Luton's players were employed as hat makers before becoming professional club footballers!
Throughout their history, they have achieved great success both domestically and internationally, including winning two League Cups (1988 & 2009), reaching four FA Cup Semi-Finals (1913, 1959, 1988 & 2019) plus promotion into Division One – now known as The Championship - five times between 1965–66 season to 2020–21 season. In addition, they also spent three seasons at the Premier League level between 1992 – 94 before being relegated back down after just three seasons due to financial difficulties within English football.
Their current manager Nathan Jones has done a fantastic job over his tenure so far, leading them up from League Two all way through to challenging for promotion into the Premier League via the playoffs last year, only narrowly missing out on achieving this feat by losing out 1-0 against Blackpool FC. This year however, there appears to be no stopping them as they currently lead the Sky Bet Championship table by 5 points clear of second place Watford FC, who are chasing hard behind!
