Fulham Football Club (Fulham F.C.) Fulham Football Club (Fulham F.C.) is an English football club, based in London. It was founded in 1879 and has its home ground at Craven Farm.
The original design of the crest dates back to the 19th century. It features the sword and cross of St Paul. The crest was altered twice and finally simplified to its current form. The three red letters are the initials for Fulham Football Club.
