Luton Town staff celebrate winning the Trophy in 2009

The Football League Trophy (currently known as the Johnstone's Paint Trophy)[1][A] is a knockout cup competition in English football organised by and named after The Football League. The competition was first played in 1983–84. The competition is open to the 48 members of the Football League bottom two divisions, Football League One and Football League Two. On several occasions, leading teams from the next league down in the English football league system, the Conference National, have been admitted into the competition but have never won the title. The final was held at the home stadium of Hull City in 1984, before it switched to Wembley Stadium in 1985. It was played at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff from 2001 while Wembley was rebuilt, before returning to the new Wembley in 2007.
