Most Seasons In The Second Tier Without Ever Reaching The First Tier


Of all the clubs in England and Wales never to have played in the top flight, Hull has spent the most number of seasons in the second tier. That’s probably the most number of seasons any club in Europe has spent in the second tier without ever playing in the first tier.

It used to be Barnsley before they played one season in the Premier League in 1998-99. Only Barnsley (67) and Leicester City (57) have spent more seasons in the second tier than Hull (53).
