Formed in 1878 Everton Football Club (aka The Toffees, The People's Club) have competed in the top division for a record 108 seasons, they have played more top-flight league games than any other English team and have won the League Championship nine times. Everton have remained in the top division since 1954, and were founder members of the Premier League in 1992.
Everton have a notable rivalry with neighbours Liverpool FC and the two sides regularly contest the Merseyside Derby. Liverpool FC were formed in 1892 by a breakaway group consisting of Everton's former president and a few players. The dispute also resulted in Everton leaving Anfield, their home ground at the time. The club have been based at their current home ground, Goodison Park, since 1892.
