Liverpool Football Club has won the English Premier League 19 times and the European Cup six times. The Reds have more European Cup, UEFA Cup, and domestic League Cup victories than any other English club. They are also the only club to have won the double twice, in 1989-90 and 1990-91.
Liverpool was founded on 15 February 1892 by John Houlding and Thomas Richardson as a result of a merger between Everton and Notts County. The new team started playing matches against other local teams, and within a year had become a professional outfit. In its first season, the team finished eighth out of 20 clubs, but since then has been ranked among the top four English clubs.
Currently, Liverpool plays its home games at Anfield, which is located in Merseyside. The stadium has a capacity of 55,000, and it's one of the most popular venues in England. It has been voted best football stadium in the world by readers of FIFA Magazine on several occasions.
Anfield was built with spectator comfort in mind. There are more than 23,000 seats inside the stadium, and each one has a window that looks out onto the pitch. The stands are covered by a roof when it rains so fans don't have to worry about getting caught out when it starts to storm before a game.
The two clubs have won 39 league championships, 19 FA Cups, 13 League Cups, 36 FA Community Shields, nine European Cups, four UEFA Cups, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, five UEFA Super Cups, one Intercontinental Cup, and two FIFA Club World Cups between them.
Liverpool became the third most successful club in European Cup history when they defeated Tottenham in the Champions League final. The Reds won the trophy for the sixth time in their ninth final, 42 years after their first and just a year after their most recent defeat, thanks to goals from Mo Salah and Divock Origi in Madrid.
Liverpool FC is one of the most successful football teams in the world, having won 48 major first-team titles. Our women's team has also won the English championship twice, while the Reds have won the FA Youth Cup four times. In addition to these achievements, we have also won the UEFA Champions League three times.
The club was founded in 1892 by the Carriage and Wagon Works as a result of an agreement between the Sproule and Lefevre families who owned the business. The original name of the club was "New Liverpool Football Club". In 1895, they entered the inaugural season of the Premier League where they played against other top-flight clubs like Everton, Preston North End, and Stoke City. Liverpool won their first title in 1909 with the help of players such as Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan, and Billy Hughes.
In 1913, the Sproule family sold their share in the club and in subsequent years, new owners have come and gone, including the Ford Motor Company, the Coca-Cola company, and currently, FSG (who bought out the former shareholders in 2006).
Today, Liverpool plays in the Premier League, which is the highest level of English football. We have been members of the league since its inception in 1992 and have never been relegated.
The club has won six European Cups, an English club record, three UEFA Cups, four UEFA Super Cups, 19 league crowns (including one Premier League), seven FA Cups, an English club record eight EFL Cups, and one FIFA Club World Cup. Liverpool is the most illustrious English club, having won 48 recognised trophies in total.
Additionally, they have been pre-qualified for the Champions League group stage five times. Last season they finished first in their group for the fifth time, which included winning all three of their matches against FC Barcelona, AS Roma and FC Bayern München during the qualifying phase. This ensured that Liverpool qualified for the 2018/19 Champions League season.
Liverpool's triumph in Europe's premier club competition was announced on 29 May 1969 when they beat Borussia Dortmund 4-1 in the final at Wembley Stadium. This makes them only the second British team after Manchester United to win the European Cup more than once after being given a second chance following the Munich air disaster that killed several players and staff.
This achievement also makes Liverpool the most successful football club in England. They have won the most English titles with seven. Leeds United were previously the only other club to have won the European Cup/Champions League. However, Italian club Juventus have now joined them as two-time winners.
