Fulham were founded in 1879 and are the oldest professional football team in London. They play at Craven Cottage, on the banks of the River Thames in Fulham which has been their home since 1896.
Fulham have never won a major honour, although they have reached two major finals. In 1975, as a Second Division team, they contested the FA Cup final for the only time in their history, losing 2–0 to West Ham United. They were captained by the great Bobby Moore, who was playing against his former club.
In 2010, Fulham reached the Europa League final, which they contested with Atletico Madrid in Hamburg, losing 2–1 after extra time.
The club has produced many British greats including Johnny Haynes, George Cohen, Bobby Robson, Rodney Marsh and Alan Mullery. In the Seventies their team featured three legends in Bobby Moore, George Best and Rodney Marsh.
