Below let’s look at the some of the oldest football clubs in the world. 

On Number One is Notts County-1862 

A question is often asked whenever the club is mentioned. Why it was formed when they were no other clubs to play against. The available records show that the club played matches as early as November 28 in 1862. 

That makes it the oldest club officially recognised and still playing in the football league.

Sheffield Wednesday -1867 

Initially it was a cricket club and one of the cricket clubs that were successful in Sheffield. The formation of the club was around 1820. However players decided to form a football club so they could play and stay fit during winter. Since cricket could not be played in winter. 

The football club became more popular than the cricket team and it became Sheffield Wednesday.
