In 1882 the Hotspur Football Club was formed by grammar school boys in Tottenham, North London. The school boys were also members of Hotspur Cricket Club and named the club after Sir Henry Percy who was "Harry Hotspur" of Shakespeare's Henry IV, part 1, and who lived locally during the 14th century. In 1884 the club was renamed Tottenham Hotspur Football and Athletic Club. The Club is also known as "Tottenham" or just simply "Spurs".
Tottenham Hotspur have been located at their home of White Hart Lane since 1899 and plan to move to a new 56,250 seater stadium adjacent to White Hart Lane by 2014.
Tottenham Hotspur were the first and only non-league club to win the F.A Cup in 1901 and also the first in the 20th century to achieve the League and FA Cup Double, winning both competitions in the 1960-61 season. In 1963, Spurs became the first British club to win a European trophy - the European Cup Winners' Cup.
Tottenham Hotspur are the record European Cup Competition winners within the London area (The UEFA Cup in 1972 & 1984 and Cup Winners Cup in 1963) and are one of only two Premier League Clubs to win a major trophy during every decade since the 1950’s. Spurs are one of only seven Clubs to compete in every Premier League since it's inception in 1992.
Spurs are well renowned for the attractive football they have played over the years. As Bill Nicholson OBE, the foundation of the modern day Club and the Club’s greatest manager famously said:-
"It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory."
