Tottenham Hotspur was founded in 1882.

It is believed that the Hotspur suffix refers to Sir Henry Percy, who was portrayed as the Harry Hotspur character of Shakespeare's Henry IV, part 1. He lived locally during the 14th century.

Whilst still members of the Southern League, Spurs became the last non-league club to win the FA Cup in 1901.

It was the first of the eight times they have won the FA Cup, in addition to twice being the champions of England.

In 1961, under iconic manager Bill Nicholson, Spurs became the first club to complete a league and cup double for the first time since Aston Villa in 1897.

In 1963, Tottenham became the first English club to win a European Competition as they defeated Atletico Madrid in the Final of the European Cup Winners' Cup.

Spurs contest the north London derby with bitter rivals Arsenal. The rivalry began when Arsenal moved to Highbury in 1913, just four miles from White Hart Lane.

Players such as Danny Blanchflower, Jimmy Greaves, Glenn Hoddle and Paul Gascoigne have all contributed to Tottenham's rich tradition of playing attractive football.

As ever-present members of the Premier League, they have regularly competed in European club competitions over recent seasons.

Their Latin motto is Audere est Facere ("To Dare Is to Do.")
