Craven Cottage has been Fulham's home stadium for most of their history and has staged almost half of Fulham's league matches.

Fulham Football Club is an English professional football team based in Fulham in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The club was formed in West Kensington in 1879 as Fulham St Andrew's Church Sunday School F.C., shortened to Fulham F.C. in 1888.[1]

They initially played at Fulham Fields before a move to Craven Cottage in 1896; the club played their first professional match in December 1898 and made their FA Cup debut in the 1902–1903 season.

The club competed in the Southern Football League between 1898 and 1907, when they were accepted into the Football League Second Division.[1] Having spent much of their history outside the top division, the team gained promotion to the Premier League in 2001.[2][3]

They have since spent more than ten seasons in the top flight, and reached the final of the UEFA Europa League in 2010.[4]

Fulham's first team has competed in a number of nationally contested leagues, and its record against each club faced in these competitions is listed below. The team that Fulham has met most in league competition is Blackpool, whom they first met in the 1907–08 Football League Second Division have since contested 100 league matches. Fulham have won 34 of the league matches against Blackpool; Leicester are the only club that Fulham have defeated more in league competition, winning 37 of their 72 meetings. Manchester United F.C. have beaten Fulham in league competition in 41 of their 67 league fixtures, which represents the most Fulham have lost against any club. Fulham have drawn more matches with Blackpool than with any other club; out of the 100 league matches between the two teams, 30 have finished without a winner.

Key[edit]

  • The records include the results of matches played in The Football League (from 1892 to 2001) and the Premier League (since 2001). Wartime matches are regarded as unofficial and are excluded, as are matches from the abandoned 1939–40 seasons. Test Matches are not included, and matches in the Southern Football League (1899 to 1907) are not included because records are hard to locate.[5]
  • For the sake of simplicity, present-day names are used throughout: for example, results against Ardwick, Small Heath and Woolwich Arsenal are integrated into the records against Manchester City, Birmingham City and Arsenal, respectively.
  •        Premier League team Teams with this background and symbol in the "Club" column are current divisional rivals of Fulham.
  •        Defunct team Clubs with this background and symbol in the "Club" column are defunct.
  • P = matches played; W = matches won; D = matches drawn; L = matches lost; F = Goals scored; A = Goals conceded; Win% = percentage of total matches won
