Brentford FC was founded in 1889 after a rally between the two prestigious English colleges Oxford and Cambridge. They had the goal of expanding the rowing season with football or rugby to keep the rowers going all year round. After the voting, it was decided that the football was winner of the election and Brentford FC was started.
The most successful period for the club was during the 1930s, including victory of the First league in 1936. They are the only club that won all their home matches during a season.
