Derby County Football Club is an English football club based in Derby, England. Notable for being one of the twelve members of the Football League in 1888, it is one of only ten clubs to have competed in every season of the English football league and, in 2009, was ranked 137th in the top 200 European football teams of the 20th century by International Federation of Football History and Statistics. The entrance of Frank Lampard as their manager was an important turning point for Derby. The former Chelsea-star brought his team to the 2019 Championship play-off final
in his first season at Pride Park Stadium.
