Team Name Quiz

Post by claretburns » Wed Apr 08, 2020 10:55 am

I hope I word this correctly and it is easy to understand.

Since the Premier League was created for the 1992/93 season, there have been 25 different team "surnames" sort to speak, if I have done my maths correctly, such as, Scotland version Partick "Thistle". I don't need all the team names just the 25 different "surnames".

Are we only counting teams that have played Premier League (or Premiership) football?

Reading the OP suggests it's any team in the top flight since the 92/93 Prem season began.

Apologies, I knew I didn't word it correctly, it counts for the whole of the football league since 1992/93 season. All suggestions so far correct, 13 to go.

Villa correct, 12 to go.

Due to Athletic being included I counted this with the other Athletic teams, still one more.

The last one is tough as the team no longer uses the name and there are various dates online saying when the name was dropped, some dates make it a Football League name, some dates don't.

Hove Albion incorrect and Stanley already been said.

Lakedistrict has it, Stevenage Borough, some records say the chairman dropped the name when they promoted till the Football League but some say it wasn't ratified by the Football League until halfway through the season.

I never include the AFC when I refer to them and there's a good reason, those three letters in front of the word Bournemouth has been trademarked by the club and they can prosecute if you use them without their permission. Also, similarly, you cannot use the word THE followed by their nickname.

I don't believe they have ever played in the league with Borough as part of their name. The club claim the name was dropped in June and if so they would have entered the league as Stevenage (without the Borough).
