Bristol City Football Club is an English football club based in the city of Bristol. They currently feature in the Football League Championship.

Bristol City was founded in 1897 as Bristol South End turned professional and altered their name to Bristol City. In 1900 they merged with local side Bedminster and joined the Football League in 1901. In 1906 the club was promoted to the first division for the first time in its history and were runners-up to Newcastle in their first season in the top flight.

After reaching the FA Cup final in 1909, Bristol City were relegated in 1911 and did not return to the first division for the next 65 years. In 1976 Bristol City returned to the English top flight but in 1982 became the first English team to suffer three successive relegations but by 1900 they clawed their way back to the Second Division.

Bristol City were relegated again in 1995 from the new second division and between 1999 and 2006 struggled to establish themselves.
