1895 World Championship (football)
|Event||Football World Championship|
|Date||27 April 1895|
|Venue||Tynecastle Park, Edinburgh|
|Referee||Mr Dickson (Scotland)|
The 1895 World Championship was a football match that took place at Tynecastle Park on 27 April 1895 between the winner of the English Football League First Division, Sunderland, and Scottish League First Division, Heart of Midlothian. The match was won by Sunderland who beat Heart of Midlothian 5–3.
The game was not the first "World Championship" game between English and Scottish sides; however, it was the first such club competition won by an English team, with previous winners being Hibernian and Renton (both Scottish Cup winners, as the leagues had not been yet created at the time). The Scottish and English leagues were pre-eminent in the world at that time, with the only league outside the UK being in Argentina.
|Sunderland||1894–95 Football League First Division champions|
|Heart of Midlothian||1894–95 Scottish Division One champions|
|Heart of Midlothian||3–5||Sunderland|
