History
  After formation in 1905, the Addicks joined the Football League in 1921 and reached the First Division in 1936. The Addicks finished their debut top-flight season in second place and after the Second World War, success continued with an FA Cup final win in 1947. But relegation in 1957 was the start of a 30-year spell in the lower divisions and the financial implications of their time outside the top-flight became apparent in 1985, when they were forced to leave their home of 66 years, The Valley. Despite being tenants at Selhurst Park, Charlton were promoted in 1986 and proved the sceptics wrong by staying in Division One for four years. But the day the fans had waited for arrived with a move home in 1992. Six years later, they claimed their place in the FA Premier League for the first time after a Division One play-off thriller. In an unforgettable game at Wembley, Charlton drew 4-4 with Sunderland, before a 7-6 penalty shoot-out win. Charlton's FA Premier League stint lasted just one season but an immediate return saw a vast improvement with a ninth-placed finish in 2001 and further consolidation thereafter.
