Morecambe F.C. is an English football club based in Morecambe, Lancashire. The club has been promoted for the first time in their history to The Football League. They will next season play their football in Football League Two, the fourth division of English football.

Football in the town dates back to the turn of the 20th Century, it was only until the 7 May 1920 hat Morecambe FC was formed after a meeting at the West View Hotel. The club then took its place in the Lancashire Combination League for the 1920-21 Season.

Sharing grounds with the Cricket Club during the 1 st season, football proved popular, with crowds in excess of 3,000 for derby fixtures with Lancaster and Fleetwood. Although success on the field was hard to come by, with the club lanquishing near the bottom of the table, at the end of the 1st season the club moved grounds to Roseberry Park . A few years later after the purchase of the ground by the then President, Mr J B Christie, the grounds' name was changed to its current title, Christie Park in his honour. Those early seasons proved difficult and it was not until 1924-25 that the club began to enjoy some success, claiming the league title for the first time, this was followed by success in the Lancashire Junior Cup (now the ATS Trophy) beating old rivals Chorley after 2 replays, and amazingly in front of over 30,000 spectators.

The President Mr J B Christie bequeathed the ground to the club in 1927 and also helped incorporate the club into a Limited Company with a then share capital of £1,000. The rest of the 1920's and the whole of the 1930's saw a constant struggle to keep football alive on the North West coast, with poor results on the field and little or no revenue off the field, a near certain recipe for disaster.

Morecambe were promoted to the Football League for the first time in their history after winning the 2007 Conference Playoff Final, beating Exeter City 2-1 at Wembley Stadium on 20 May 2007, in front of over 40,000 fans which followed their semi-final victory over York City.
