Or you could simply use the wiki page.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of ... ear_formed

And there's still plenty of dispute to be had. Were Stoke formed in 1863 or 1868? And were either of those Stoke City anyway? Were Notts Coubty the same Nottingham Football Club formed in 1862 or did they form in 1864? :shrug:

And where are 1860 Munich in all that? Do they count? The club formed in 1860.... But didn't play football until 1899 apparently.

Who knows.

It would make more sense if the list was consistent in how it treated clubs that had reformed.

They would certainly seem to be taking the piss with that claim. :lol:
