Birmingham City

Founded in 1875, but undertook their current name of Birmingham City in 1943. The side has played at St Andrews since 1906. In the early part of the 21st Century they have been a bit of a yo-yo team in between the Premier League and Championship. Their last appearance in the Premier League was in 2011, the same season where they beat Arsenal 2-1 in the League Cup final to claim their first major honour.
