All about Saracens FC

Saracens FC is a professional Rugby Football Union club that currently plays in the Aviva Premiership, the top tier of domestic rugby in England.

The club currently plays its home games at the newly built Allianz Park, where they relocated in February 2013, before which the club used to play their home games at the Vicarage Road stadium at Watford, which they shared with the Watford Football Club. The club was founded back in 1876 by the Old Boys of the Philological School in Marylebone, which then went on to become the St. Marylebone Grammar School.

Just two years after its formation, the club amalgamated with another local club, the Crusaders to become the club that plays in the Aviva Premiership now. Just like many other clubs of that era, the club did not have any stable home ground and played in as many as nine different venues before shifting base to Bramley Road just before World War II. Saracens FC played their first official match against Blackheath but after that match, the club had to wait as long as nine years to play their next match when Harlequins FC offered them the chance to be included in their official fixture list.

During that time, the club struggled to get matches against the top sides in the country because of the poor facilities at the club’s home ground. Before the advent of league rugby in the country, the club produced a number of England internationals, but the club, as a whole, wasn’t as big as some of the others.

However, with the dawn of professionalism is England, the fortunes of Saracens FC changed as they got a lot of matches and as a testament to their efforts all those years back, won the Aviva Premiership in 2010-11 season, their first domestic league title.
