A Fact
Livingston currently play in the Scottish Championship and were founded in 1943 as Ferranti Thistle, a works team. The club was admitted to the Scottish Football League and renamed as Meadowbank Thistle in 1974, and played its matches at Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh. In 1995, the club was relocated to LivingstonWest Lothian and renamed after the town. Since then Livingston have played their home games at theAlmondvale Stadium. In the ten years following the move to Livingston the club enjoyed significant success, winning promotion to the Scottish Premier League in 2001, qualifying for the UEFA Cup in its maiden season in the top flight (finishing third after Celtic and Rangers) and winning the 2004 Scottish League Cup. However, the club hit financial problems in 2004, and was relegated to the Scottish First Division in 2006. In July 2009 the club faced further financial problems and were on the verge of being liquidated before a deal was struck to save the club. Livingston were subsequently demoted to the Scottish Third Division,[2] but the club has since achieved consecutive promotions and has now regained its place in the second tier.From Wikipedia
