Trophy History

Fulham have a rich history since being founded in 1879 but their trophy record is scarce of titles. The Craven Cottage team have seldom sealed silverware for the list of how many trophies they have won.

The west London outfit are still yet to win a major title, despite being the oldest professional football team from the capital of England. A title also arrived at the doors of Craven Cottage for the first time in 1902. The early years in Fulham’s history as a club brought several titles from the lower divisions.

Success in the lower tiers of the professional football pyramid enhances Fulham’s trophy history. The Cottagers have also seldom come close to winning a major domestic cup. But they have had some joy in Europe. So, if you ever need reminding, here is the full list of every trophy that Fulham have won…

Fulham have never won a top-flight league title

Fulham made the top-flight of the English game for the first time in the 1949/50 Division One season. They have since featured in the top tier for large spells in the 1950s, 1960s, 2000s and 2010s. Fulham had their longest spell in Division One from 1959 to 1968 and the Premier League from 2001 to 2014.

Yet Roy Hodgson took Fulham to their highest-ever top-flight finish in 2008/09 after securing seventh place in the Premier League. The team’s previous-best finish was ninth-place in the 2003/04 Premier League term. While Fulham claimed their highest finish to a Division One term with 10th in 1959/60.

Long spells outside of the top-flight have seen Fulham add other league titles to their trophy cabinet, though. The Cottagers have topped the table in various second and third-tier seasons. They have also sealed several promotions out of the second, third and fourth tiers without lifting the league trophy.

While the very first trophy in the history of Fulham arrived in the 1901/02 Southern Football League Division 2 term. The Cottagers enjoyed some success in regional competitions before they earned a place in the English Football League (EFL). They became an EFL member for the first time in 1907/08.

Fulham are yet to win the FA Cup

As well as never winning a top-flight title, Fulham are yet to add a single FA Cup trophy to their list of honours. The Cottagers have seldom reached the showpiece fixture throughout their history, as well. Even though they first entered the oldest national football competition in the world back in 1902/03.

Fulham’s best finish in the FA Cup:

1974/75 (runners-up, lost 2-0 to West Ham United in the final)

Fulham are yet to win the EFL Cup

Not one English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) title features in Fulham’s trophy cabinet, either. The Cottagers have competed in every edition of the tournament since it began in 1960/61. Yet Fulham have never yet reached the semi-finals, let alone the final, with a host of quarter-final appearances.

Fulham’s best finishes in the EFL Cup:

1967/68 (quarter-finals, lost 2-1 AET to Huddersfield Town in a replay)

Fulham have tasted some success on the continent, too, having added one European cup to the list of how many trophies the Cottagers have won. The west London outfit were one of three teams to win the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2002. The trophy also secured them qualification into the 2002/03 UEFA Cup.

UEFA invited Fulham to compete in the Intertoto Cup after finishing in 13th place during their debut Premier League season. It also marked the club’s first time playing in any European tournament. The Cottagers returned to the UEFA Cup after it became the Europa League in 2009/10 and lost the final.

List of Fulham’s European cups:

2002 UEFA Intertoto Cup (beat Bologna FC 5-3 over a two-legged final)
