This club from Inverness in the north of Scotland reached the 3rd place in the Scottish top flight in the 2014/15 season. However, they currently operate in the lower Scottish Championship. The club's home stadium is the Caledonian Stadium, which has a seating capacity of 7,512. The club plays in blue and red jerseys at home, and black and orange away.
The club is relatively young, having only been founded in 1994 as Caledonian Thistle FC, as a result of the merger of Caledonian and Inverness Thistle. It adopted its current name two years later. The reason for the club's founding was, of course, the desire to join the Scottish Football League. Its origins were in the Third Division. After promotion, it spent the next two years in the second division before fighting its way up to the first division, where it operated until 2004.
From that year onwards, therefore, he subsequently operated for the first time in the Scottish top flight, but it was coupled with one small inconvenience. At the time, the regulations required the stadium to have a capacity of at least 10,000, which the Caledonian Stadium did not meet. However, the club was allowed to enter the top flight competition by agreeing to travel to Aberdeen, 160 miles away.
However, fans could soon look forward to seeing their club at home, as the required stadium capacity for the top competition was reduced to 6,000 in the 2004/05 season. The home stadium, after a rapid expansion of capacity, easily met this requirement. The construction company did the job in just 47 days and the stadium was renamed Tulloch Caledonian Stadium to reflect this. However, after the initial win came poor results and the club dropped back down a league in 2009.
The club made it to the top flight for a second time in 2010, but were relegated again in the 2016/17 season, as mentioned in the introduction. But the club achieved other successes during its time in the First Division, when it robbed Celtic of the Scottish Challenge Cup, where it triumphed twice overall, in the following seasons:
The art of shocking in their early days earned them the label of "giant killers". And in cups, the club has also been on a roll of late, winning the Scottish Cup in the 2014/15 season.
