The St. Mark’s Football Club In 1884. It Would Become Manchester City.

England’s Manchester City is the oldest football club in 2015’s edition of the UEFA’s Champions League, kicking it for 136 seasons. City is closely followed by the London-based Arsenal Gunners, at 130 years. And another English team, Liverpool, wraps up the top three.

Out of the 32 clubs representing 18 countries at Europe’s top combined level, 22 have been around for over a century.

The kids on the block? France’s Paris Saint-Germain (46), Belarus’ BATE Borisov (20) and Bulgaria’s Ludogorets Razgrad (15) – the only clubs 50 years young, or younger.
