Oxford United FC

You can always tell when Oxford United Football Club is playing at home as it seems like the whole city is heading down Grenoble Road [map] to the Kassam Stadium [map].

It’s fair to say that the Club owes much to its fans and whilst the “U’s” have experienced many ups and downs, supporters have remained cheerful and coaxed them to get back on their feet.

The club was formed on October 27, 1893 at the Britannia Inn in Headington, which was then a village, but it wasn’t until 1949 and the admission to the Southern League that the club became the Oxford United we know today.

Oxford United plays in a yellow and navy strip with a white trim and visitors to an “at home” match can enjoy a very modern stadium which includes a bar. There’s also plenty of pubs in the area for die-hard fans.

Here are some interesting facts about Oxford United Football Club:

  • They hold the record-winning margin for a Wembley final of the League Cup (in its many guises).
  • As a Third Division side in 1983-84, they beat Manchester United, Leeds and Newcastle on the way to a quarter final replay defeat at Everton.
  • Oxford have beaten every one of the leading clubs in league matches apart from Liverpool and Spurs.
