Wrexham Association Football Club ( nicknamed The Red Dragons) are a professional football team based in Wrexham, north Wales, who play in the English football pyramid. Founded in 1872, they are one of the oldest surviving football clubs in the UK and are the oldest professional club in Wales. The picture shows the Racecourse ground with the famous Turf Public House in the foreground. They currently play in the Conference National following their relegation from Football League Two at the end of 2007–08 after 87 years of consecutive membership. The fifth tier of the English football league system, also known as the Conference National, is the lowest level of competition that Wrexham have played in since they were first elected to the football league in 1921. Wrexham's home stadium, The Racecourse, is the world's oldest international stadium that still continues to host international games. | During Wrexham's existence they have been known as a team that have been capable of going on cup runs that belie their traditionally lowly league position. They are 23-time winners and 22-time runners up of the Welsh Cup and are also 5 time winners of the FAW Premier Cup, which allowed them regular entries into European football competitions, where they carried out many famous giant killings. They also won the Football League Trophy during the 2004/05 season. They have also reached the quarter finals of the FA Cup three times and the League Cup quarter finals twice. During the 1990/91 season, they also reached the second round of the European Cup Winners Cup, before being knocked out by the eventual winners Manchester United.| Following their relegation in 2007-08, they joined fellow Welsh sides Newport County, Merthyr Tydfil and Colwyn Bay playing in the English non–league system for the 2008-09 season after 87 consecutive years of Football League membership. In this season they finished at 10th place of the Conference National.
