The club participates in the Premier League, the top tier of English football – and their greatest achievement in cup competitions came in 2014, when the team reached the final of the FA Cup. In 2007–08 they achieved promotion to the top flight of English football for the first time in their history by winning the Championship play-off final at Wembley Stadium. Their highest league finish was for the 2013–14 season, in which they finished 16th in the Premier League table.
Hull City play their home games at the KCOM Stadium. They moved there in 2002 after playing their previous 56 seasons at Boothferry Park. Boothferry Park has since been demolished and been replaced by a housing development. Hull traditionally play in black and amber, often with a striped shirt design, hence their nickname The Tigers. The club's mascots are Roary the Tiger and his sister Amber.Close
