Southampton F.C. began life in 1885 as St Mary's Young Men's Association F.C. In 1887 this was shortened to St Mary's F.C. and then became Southampton St Mary's F.C. when the team joined the Southern League in 1894. In 1897, after wining their first Southern League Championship, they changed to Southampton F.C. The team played many of its early matches on The Common, meaning that they were sometimes interrupted by pedestrians. The team moved to the newly built stadium 'The Dell' in 1898, where they stayed for 103 years. The new all seat St Mary's stadium became their new home in 2001. Southampton enjoyed great success in the Southern League before being elected to the Football League Division Three in 1920. They were promoted in the first season and spent 31 years in the Second Division. In 1966 the club reached the top division for the first time in its history and stayed there until 1974. They returned to the top flight in 1978 but not before the greatest day in the club's history, when they beat Manchester United 1-0 in the FA Cup final, making them only the second team outside of the top flight to win the cup. The club stayed in the top flight for 27 years before relegation in 2005.
