Dundee F.C. is one of the city's two senior professional football clubs. This is unusual for a city of the size of Dundee and in fact, the grounds are only a few hundred yards away from each other. Hence the rivalry with Dundee United is a fierce one indeed, cooling a little recently when Dundee was relegated to the Scottish First Division in 2005. The club was first formed in 1893, from the amalgamation of two teams, Our Boys and East End. The team's first Scottish League match was on the 12th August 1893, a 3-3 draw with Rangers. The team moved to its current home of Dens Park in 1899, the stadium now holds 11,856. During the 1900s Dundee were runners-up in the Scottish League three times, but had to wait until 1961-62 before claiming the team's only league championship to date. In 1910 the team won the Scottish Cup for the only time, having been runner-up on four subsequent occasions. Dundee has won the Scottish League Cup on three occasions and reached the semi final of the two major European Competitions, the European Cup and the Inter City Fairs Cup. Recently the club has had to overcome financial problems caused by the former owners.
