Hull Football Club are one of the oldest clubs in rugby league. Established for over 150 years, they are well known for their dedicated fans, black and white kit and notorious derbies with city rivals Hull Kingston Rovers. The club has been home to several high profile players, including Steve Prescott and Clive Sullivan.
Hull FC is one of the oldest clubs in professional sport, celebrating their 150th anniversary in 2015.
Currently operating as one of the leading clubs in Super League – the sport’s elite competition in this country – Hull FC play their home games at the unrivalled KCOM Stadium and are nicknamed the Black and Whites after the traditional colours on their playing strips.
The club has won the Challenge Cup four times, most recently in 2016, as well as playing in Cup finals as recently as 2008 and 2013.
Hull have been named Rugby League Champions six times, as well as winning the Rugby League Premiership in 1991.
As well as enjoying a long and fruitful heritage with success on the field, Hull FC are also recognised as one of the sport’s strongest clubs off the pitch and were twice awarded the coveted A grade licence by the game’s governing body in previous comparisons between the club and its Super League rivals.
The grading, the highest the Rugby Football League could bestow, took into account every aspect of the club behind the scenes including facilities, media and marketing, retail, financial, well-being and Hull FC’s commercial and community operations.
Hull were also named 2016 Super League Club of the Year after their great success on the field as well as off it.
We also lead from the front when it comes to our communication output and once again remain one of the sport’s leading clubs, offering unrivalled television, online, social and traditional media content, ranking as one of the top 50 clubs for media content in a recent survey and were also awarded best use of social and digital media at the inaugural Super League club awards last year.
The Hull FC Foundation is recognised as one of the leading community sport charities in the country.
The club’s head office is based at the KCOM Stadium, whilst a number of other facilities are based in Hull and the surrounding area.
The club’s first-team training ground is on County Road in Hull, whilst the City of Hull Academy train at Bishop Burton College.
The club’s media and marketing department is based in Hull’s growing digital and tech centre in the Fruit Market district, working in partnership with the city’s Centre for Digital Innovation, whilst the community foundation work from purpose built community centres in both East and West Hull.
We are very proud of our strong community presence and work hard to maintain our identity as ‘the club of Hull.’
We have built our organisation around a ‘one club’ mentality where everybody has a key part to play in our growth and we hope this will be the foundation for continued success in the future.
