Fulham Football Club is one of a few West London clubs that played in the Premier League, along with Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers. This football club was founded all the way back in 1879 and they are the oldest London club that plays professional football.
However, this long history didn’t exactly translate into many successful years for Fulham since the club has spent most of its time competing in the lower leagues. Still, they managed to reach two major finals in their history – the FA Cup Final in 1975 when they lost to Arsenal and the UEFA Europa League Final in 2010 when they lost to Atlético Madrid after extra time.
Fulham has been in and out of the Premier League since its foundation, earning the latest promotion in 2019/2020 season. Their current manager is Scott Parker. Fulham FC plays games at Craven Cottage since 1896.
