Much of the success Hull City Association Football Club has seen over the course of the past 20 years has come in English soccer’s second division. Founded in 1904, Hull City was promoted to the Premier League for the first time in franchise history in 2007-08 after wining the Football League Championship playoff. Their time in the top division was short-lived however, as a 19th-place finish in 2010 sent the Tigers back to the second league. They made a Premier League comeback for the 2013-14 season where the Tigers enjoyed a franchise-best 16th-place finish.
The following season however, Hull City was once again relegated to the Championship. Fast-forward two years later, and the Tigers are back in the Premier League after being promoted to England’s top division.
In total, Hull City has won two Championship playoffs and was runners-up in 2013. The club’s greatest accomplishment in cup competition was in 2014 when Hull City reached the FA Cup championship before losing to Arsenal.
Chris Chilton, who made 415 appearances for Hull City, is still the franchise’s all-time leading scorer with 193 goals. Stuart Elliott holds the record for most goals in a single season with 27 tallies.
Former defender Andy Davidson, who played for the Tigers from 1952 to 1968, is the franchise’s all-time leader in appearances with 520.
