Universally recognised as the Oldest League Club in the World, Notts County was formed in 1862 and was a founder member of the English Football League in 1888. The Club played at a number of grounds in the early years, including the Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, for two different periods.

Throughout the years Notts have moved between the Divisions on no less than 26 occasions. In recent times the club have had just two spells at the highest level in English football, between 1981-1984 and for one season only, 1991-1992 in the last season of Division One it was re-named The Premiership.

The Meadow Lane Stadium, Notts home since 1910, has been completely rebuild during the early 1990’s at a cost of £8 million and currently has a capacity of 20,300 all seated, boasting some of the best facilities outside of the Premiership.
