Hull F.C. was founded in 1865 and traditionally serves the west side of Hull, whilst rivals Hull Kingston Rovers serve the east. The River Hull provides the traditional dividing line. In 1895 Hull F.C. were founder members of the Northern Rugby Union, being one of 22 clubs from the north who broke away from the Rugby Football Union over 'broken-time' payments. For a brief period in the 1990s, the team was known as the Hull Sharks but then reverted to the original name of Hull F.C. after merging with Gateshead Thunder in 1999. The team now plays at the magnificent Kingston Communications Stadium, where they are joint tenants with Hull City A.F.C. The stadium holds over 25,000 spectators. Hull F.C. has won the Rugby League Championship on seven occasions, the first two in 1920 and 1921 consecutively and the last being the Premiership win in 1991. Hull has also won the Challenge Cup three times, the first in 1914 and the last in 2005. Hull has had a roller coaster ride in terms of their finances and success in the Super League era. The team finds itself back in the Super League facing a tough fight for survival in 2008.
