Despite being based in Wales, Cardiff City Football Club compete in England. The club was formerly known as Riverside A.F.C. until they changed their name in 1908.

Cardiff enjoyed much success during the 1920s. The club achieved a second place finish in the First Division in 1924. They also reached two FA Cup finals, the second of which they won against Arsenal. However, Cardiff have spent the majority of their history competing in lower divisions of English football. During the early part of the 21st century Cardiff were pushing for promotion to the Premier League on a regular basis.

After a change of ownership in 2010, Cardiff underwent a rebranding process. In exchange for investment from Malaysian owners, the club agreed to changed their home colours from blue to red and black.

In 2012/2013 Cardiff finally won promotion to the Premier League for the first time.
