Founded 1908 as Hartlepools United
Ground Victoria Park,

Hartlepool United Football Club is a professional football based in Hartlepool, in County Durham. Hartlepool play their home games at Victoria Park, which is situated on Clarence Road in the town. In 1905, the amateur team West Hartlepool won the FA Amateur Cup which at the time was considered second only to the FA Cup. Partly as a result of this the opportunity for a professional team arose in 1908, when West Hartlepool Rugby Club went bust leaving their stadium ‘The Victoria Ground’ vacant. The stadium was bought and the current club was founded under the name ‘Hartlepools United Football Athletic Company’, representing both the town of West Hartlepool and the original settlement of Old Hartlepool. The club were founder members of the Third Division North in 1921, and thus joined the Football League. Hartlepool have since spent the majority of their history in the fourth tier of English football, with occasional spells in the third. They have played Chelsea just once; an FA Cup tie in 1956.
