Dundee United Honours

Dundee United have won all of the major honours in Scottish football during their history, with the pinnacle being when they won the Scottish Premier Division in the 1982/83 season. A thrilling title race came right down to the final day of the campaign as Dundee United won each of their last six league matches to win the title, beating rivals Dundee 2-1 away from home to secure their crown. They finished just one point ahead of second and third-placed Celtic and Aberdeen, respectively, in what remains the only top flight title the club have won to date. In addition, the club have also won the second tier title three times in their history, coming in the 1924/25, 1928/29 and 2019/20 seasons.

Dundee United have also enjoyed success in Scotland’s cup competitions too, having won both the Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup twice apiece. They first won the Scottish Cup in 1994 when they defeated Rangers 1-0 at Hampden Park at a time where their opponents were dominating the country. Their second Scottish Cup victory came in 2010 when they comfortably beat Ross County 3-0 in the final. The club’s Scottish League Cup victories came in back-to-back years in 1980 and 1981, beating Aberdeen and Dundee in the finals, respectively. Their trophy cabinet is complete with the 2016/17 Scottish Challenge Cup, which they won at the expense of St. Mirren.

Dundee United History

Dundee United Football Club was founded on 24 May 1909, initially calling themselves Dundee Hibernian. They instantly claimed tenancy at Tannadice Park and were later voted into the Scottish Football League in 1910. The club changed their name to Dundee United in 1923 after being saved from going out of business altogether. The Tangerines had a number of relegations and promotions between each of the top two divisions in Scottish football during their early history, but really established themselves as regulars in the top flight once Jerry Kerr became manager in 1959. The club won promotion during his first season in charge and have been a regular presence in the Scottish Premiership ever since.

However, it was under Jim McLean where the club enjoyed its golden era, with McLean spending a total of 22 years in charge from 1971 to 1993. They were particularly a force during the 1980s, with the club winning back-to-back League Cups in 1980 and 1981, as well as their only Scottish Premiership title in the 1982/83 season. They followed that up with four consecutive third-placed finishes. That title victory also led to them competing in the European Cup for the first time the following season, where they made it to the semi-finals. Dundee United faced Roma and won the first leg 2-0 at Tannadice, before losing 3-0 in the second leg at the Stadio Olimpico. They remained regulars in Europa by the UEFA Cup and made the final of the competition in 1987, losing 2-1 to Goteborg over two legs.
