Stoke City F.C. (known as Stoke F.C. until 1925) is a football club from Stoke-on-Trent in England. The club is reputedly the second oldest football league club in the world after Notts County F.C. claiming to have been formed in 1863 (disputed by some who claim it to be 1868). The club’s nickname is The Potters. They currently play in the Football League Championship.

They are one of the 12 founder members of the Football League, playing (and losing) their first game against West Bromwich Albion F.C. on the 8th September 1888.

In 1997 the club moved from its traditional home at the Victoria Ground to its new home at the 28,000 all-seater Britannia Stadium. Maximum allocation for visiting supporters is 4,800

Stoke’s home kit consists of a red & white vertical striped shirt with white shorts.

They are managed by Tony Pulis.

They are currently in a mid-table position in the Football League Championship.

Stoke-on-Trent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1387 words)
The city is named after the town of Stoke, the earliest of the six towns to be established.
The city is the only one of the eleven English districts with elected mayors to use the mayor and council manager system rather than the mayor and cabinet system.
The Federation of the Six Towns brought together the boroughs of Hanley, Burslem, Longton and Stoke, together with the districts of Tunstall and Fenton as the single county borough of Stoke-on-Trent in 1910.
