Manchester United has, for the most part, dominated the English Premier League since its inception over 20 years ago. As England’s most storied football club, the team was formed in 1878 as the Newton Heath LYR Football Club, but changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to its current stadium, Old Trafford, in 1910. Manchester United’s winning pedigree dates back to 1993 when the Red Devils captured their first of 20 Premier League championships.
Many of those titles — 13 to be exact — came under legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson. Their last league victory was during the 2012-13 season, which turned out to be Ferguson’s final year with the club. In addition to their 20 league titles, the Red Devils have a won 12 FA Cups, four League Cups and a record 20 FA Community Shields.
Manchester United — one of the most widely followed teams around the globe — was the world’s third most valuable football club in 2015, worth a whopping $1.98 billion.
Bobby Charlton, who was with the Red Devils from 1956 to 1973, is the franchise’s all-time leading scorer with 249 goals. It’s a milestone that will soon be broken as Wayne Rooney is closing in on that mark with 245 goals. Ryan Giggs played 23 seasons and leads the franchise in all-time appearances with 963 matches.
