Sports:

Dundee United Football Club is a Scottish professional football club located in the city of Dundee. Formed in 1909, originally as Dundee Hibernian, 2009 is Dundee United's centenary year. The club changed to the present name in 1923. Traditionally, United are nicknamed "The Terrors" and the supporters known as The Arabs, although the latter has been applied equally to the club in recent times by the sporting media, in favour of the former.
 
The club has played in tangerine kits since the 1960s and have played at the present ground, Tannadice Park, since their foundation in 1909. United were founder members of the Scottish Premier League (SPL) in 1998 and have been ever-present in the competition since then. The family of the late Eddie Thompson, chairman from September 2002 until his death in October 2008, are the majority shareholders of Dundee United, whilst the supporters, under the guise of ArabTRUST, own the second largest shareholding. In 2008–09, Tannadice attracted an average attendance of 8,654, the sixth-highest in the SPL.
 
Domestically, the club has won the Scottish Premier Division on one occasion, winning the Scottish Cup once and the Scottish League Cup twice. In European competition, the club played in European competition for the first time at the end of the 1964–65 season, going on to appear in European competition in 14 successive seasons from 1976, reaching a European Cup semi-final and UEFA Cup final. Uniquely, the club has a 100% record against Barcelona in European ties.
