A Stadium with a View

London's oldest professional football team.

Location: Craven Cottage, Stevanage Road, SW6 6HH

Description: Fulham Football Club are based in Fulham...funnily enough and are commonly known as the 'The Cottagers' or 'The Whites', in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

Founded in 1879, they celebrated their 125th anniversary in 2004. They are the oldest professional football team in London, usually considered to have been founded in 1879, (though Cray Wanderers F.C. are the oldest team in London still in existence).

They currently play at Craven Cottage, their famous home since 1896, a riverside ground on the banks of the River Thames.

Fulham started its existence in 1879 as Fulham St Andrew's Church Sunday School, founded by worshippers at the C of E church on Star Road, West Kensington, which still stands today with a plaque commemorating the team's foundation.

Their current owner and keen footie goer is Mohamed Abdel Moneim Fayed, an Egyptian businessman and billionaire who also owns the Harrods department store in Knightsbridge.
