Dundee United F.C. was formed in 1909 by members of the local Irish community in Dundee, primarily to replace Dundee Harp who had folded three years earlier. Calling themselves Dundee Hibernian they moved into Clepington Park, displacing the current occupants Dundee Wanderers and renaming it Tannadice Park. The team was invited to join the Scottish League in 1910 after a successful first season. There was a rocky relationship between the club and the Scottish League following World War I due to the league's decision not to reintroduce the Second Division after the war. After much protest and resignations from the league, the second tier was finally reintroduced in 1921. In 1923 the club was renamed Dundee United. Dundee United has won a number of major trophies throughout the club's history; winning the Scottish League in 1983, the Scottish Cup in 1994 and the Scottish League Cup in 1980 and 1981. They have achieved some success in European competition, being runners-up in the UEFA cup in 1987 and semi-finalists in the European Cup in 1984. The club still plays its home games at Tannadice Park, which currently holds 14,209 supporters. The current tangerine strip was adopted following the team playing under the name 'Dallas Tornado' in the United Soccer Association competition of 1967.
