Apart from Blackpool, Preston have had other rivalries heat up and grow stale over the years, mostly local, with the likes of Blackburn Rovers, Burnley, Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers.

Preston History

Preston North End were formed as far back as 1863, but they were initially a cricket club. Later that year they took up abode at the Moor Park in the north of Preston, and added the “North End” to their name in recognition of their new home. However, the football club was officially founded in 1880, following the formation of a rugby team three years before. Preston are known as one of the first professional clubs in the game, having hired players mostly from Scotland in those days. They joined the Football League from its inception in 1888, and they were admitted to the First Division immediately with the formation of the multi-tier system in 1892. Long they floated from the top tier to the second and back, but after the relegation from the First Division in 1960, they haven’t returned to this day. They’ve been moving between tiers two and three ever since, with the exception of a two-year stint in the Fourth Division (1985-87). They were crowned champions of England in 1889 and 1890, and they also won the FA Cup on two occasions (1889, 1938), beating Wolverhampton Wanderers and Huddersfield Town in the finals, respectively.
