Hull FC Rugby League

Hull Football Club, or simply Hull FC as they are most often referred to are one of the sleeping giants of European Rugby League Football. The club have a state of the art stadium, fantastic training facilities, a huge fan base but something has always kept them from becoming one of the giants of Super League.

Thankfully for their fans and for the sort in general, things seem to be turning for the better and thanks to the club’s recent success at Wembley, there is a newly found confidence and belief surrounding the club.

Rivals

The biggest rivals for Hull FC are, unsurprisingly, there city neighbours Hull Kingston Rovers. With both teams spending time together in the top flight in England, the rivalry has intensified but even when one of the team is a division below, the rivalry is always there.

When the 2 teams meet, you are always guaranteed a full house and one of the most intensive atmospheres in sport. Even when these 2 teams meet in pre-season matches, which have become something of a tradition in the city, there is an attendance figure to rival that of many teams highest of the season.

The Airlie Birds paly in Black and White and get most of their support from the West of the City whilst the Robins play in Red and White and get most of their support from East Hull.

That makes the River Hull traditionally the border marker for support in the city although in recent timers both clubs get support from all over the city and East Yorkshire in general.

Colours

The clubs black and white colour scheme always make for an iconic kit whenever Hull FC step out onto the field.

Although the makeup of the kit has changed throughout the years, from stripes to hoops and even an ill-fated period of a giant shark! when Hull FC take to the field in their black and white strip, you are always reminded of the history and prestige of the club.

Stadium

Shortly after the formation of the Northern Union, Hull FC moved to The Boulevard which for many is still the ancestral home of the club. In their 100 or so years playing out of the Boulevard, the club shared the ground with Hull City, Speedway and Greyhound racing but it was always known locally and nationally as the home of the Black and Whites.

With the club suffering from dire financial issues in the 1990’s, the aging ground feel into a bad state and the club were fortunate enough to move into the council built and owned KC Stadium. Now known as the KCOM Stadium, the Airlie Birds are able to attract some of the biggest attendances in the UK.

The ground has to be one of the best in the Super League and offers great views no matter where you sit. The KCOM has good access to the city centre and a good park and ride scheme making a popular choice for locals and away fans alike.

The stadium has also allowed the club to host many international matches with some great battles between Great Britain/England down the years and the ground was also a host stadium for the World Cup in 2013.

History

With the move to the summer era, things became a struggle for Hull Fc and after an ill-fated rebranding as Hull Sharks and a ‘merger’ with Gateshead, Hull FC are now back amongst them elite in the game and play their home games in one of the sports leading stadiums.

After the recent takeover by Adam Pearson, things are looking even better for the black and whites and it can only be a short time before success on the field returns to Airlie Birds.
