Club History

It was in the Spring of 1909 that the Irish community in Dundee got together to form a football club following the demise of Dundee Harp three years earlier.

Tannadice was the scene for Dundee Hibs debut in the Scottish League and although opponents Leith Athletic won 3-2 Hibs quickly earned a reputation as cup fighters and on 25 March 1911 won the Forfarshire Cup, another local cup competition, at the first attempt

There was one more fundamental change to take place in 1923. In order to attract wider appeal, the club decided to drop the reference to Hibernian from their title. Dundee City was their favoured choice but this led to a protest by city rivals Dundee. Ultimately the name of Dundee United was adopted and accepted by the powers that be on 26th October 1923. Twenty four hours later there was a less than auspicious start when the newly named United went down 3-0 to Dumbarton at Boghead.
