Stadium White Hart Lane

Spurs were established in 1882, and originate from a Cricket Club and local Grammar School. They were originally known as Hotspur (adopted from the Cricket Club) but later added Tottenham to distinguish themselves from a club of the same name.

The team experimented with different kits but changed to white shirts in 1899 to replicate Preston North End, who were the most successful club at the time. In the same year the team moved to the ground at High Road, the ground eventually adopted the name of 'White Hart Lane' (after the thoroughfare).

In 1901 Spurs made history by being the only non-league club to ever win the FA cup. They have won the FA Cup 8 times, interestingly enough, often when the year ends in 1 (1921, 1961, 1981 and 1991). They have also won the league twice, the League Cup 3 times, the European Cup Winners Cup once and the UEFA cup twice

Tottenham joined League division 2 in 1908 and gained promotion to the top flight on their first attempt. By the time World War One suspended all football matches the team was struggling at the foot of the table.

In 1951 Tottenham became league champions for the first time and became the first team to win the first and second divisions in successive seasons. In 1961 they became the first team in the 20th Century to win both the FA Cup and League in the same season.
