Hull City History
Hull City was founded in 1904, they played friendly matches at The Boulevard which was the home of the Hull Rugby League Club, and just a year later they were elected to the Second Division of the Football League. Hull City adopted their nickname “The Tigers” from their amber and black striped tiger-like shirts which they have worn since their formation.
The 1929-30 season was of mixed fortunes for the Tigers, as they had their best ever run in the FA cup, beating leaders and eventual champions of both Second and Third Division (South), Blackpool and Plymouth Argyle and triumphed against First Division Newcastle United and Manchester City to reach the semi-finals before losing 1-0 to Arsenal in a replay.
This was the closest they would come to reaching the FA Cup final until 2014, when Hull narrowly missed out on their chance to claim revenge against Arsenal in front of almost 90,000 spectators at Wembley – the Tigers lost the match 3-2 after extra time. The 1965-66 record-breaking season ended with the Third Division title, the Tigers scored an impressive 109 goals and earnt 69 points – find out more Hull City news here!

The 2003-04 season marked the start of memorable back-to-back promotions for the Tigers, as they made their may up from Division Three to the Championship for the first time after a 100 years wait in joining the Football League. Their success did not stop there, and after just three seasons competing in the Championship, the Tigers were amazingly promoted to the Premier League via the play-offs, beating Watford 6-1 on aggregate in the semi-final and Bristol City 1-0 in the final.
Celebrations did not end in the city as the Tigers had finally reached the top flight of English football. After just two seasons in the top tier however, Hull were relegated back down to the Championship before winning automatic promotion once again in 2012-13, after finishing second. This time they recorded their highest ever Football League position – 16th in the Premier League, and were relegated in 2014-15 before sealing promotion once more the following season.
At the end of the 2016-17 season, the Tigers were relegated from the Premier League for the third time in just eight years – stay up to date with breaking Hull City news from the Championship!
