Tottenham Hotspur FC was formed as the Tottenham Marshes in 1882.

The Spurs finally reached the top division in 1908-09, but had little success until the 1960’s. The 1980’s saw Tottenham finally reach the top and put a string of winning seasons together to make their fans proud. The Spurs have won the top division twice, the FA Cup 8 times, the League Cup 4 times and the UEFA Cup twice. Since 2001 the key shareholder has been ENIC International Ltd, an investment company established by the British billionaire Joe Lewis. Daniel Levy, Lewis's partner at ENIC, is Executive Chairman of the club.
