Bristol City Rivalry
Bristol City’s traditional rivals are their neighbours, Bristol Rovers, who currently play in League One. The two clubs have had a total of 105 clashes in which City have been the more successful side with 43 victories.
However, they haven’t been in the same division since 2000/01, and City have since developed a fiercer rivalry with Cardiff City. The two cities are close, but one is in England and the other in Wales, which gives their clashes an extra dimension.
Bristol City History
Bristol City were established in 1894 under the name of Bristol South End. They changed their name to the current one three years later, when they became a professional club and began competing in the Southern League.
City finished second in their first-ever top flight season in 1906/07. Their only FA Cup final in history so far came three years later, when they were beaten to the trophy by Manchester United. In 1911, they were relegated and stayed out of the First Division for over six decades.
During that time they endured a long phase of ups and downs, moving occasionally between the Second Division and the southern section of the Third Division, but after the appointment of Alan Dicks as the manager in 1967, they slowly began climbing back up and eventually broke into the First Division again in 1976.
The early 1980s were a very difficult time for the club. They suffered a financial fiasco, and having dropped as low as the Fourth Division in 1982, they were declared bankrupt which prompted a new club to be formed. Two years later, manager Terry Cooper led them back to the Third Division and fortified the team there.
It was another roller coaster stint between tiers two and three after that, but things have been looking more stable in the last decade or so. They spent 10 out of the last 12 seasons in the Championship.
