How did it develop?

The foundation 

The club was first built in one of the most ancient cities in England- Manchester. At that time, the town was on the way to become the most populated and busiest urban area. That fact, somehow, encouraged merging football clubs.  

In this situation, a football club was founded in 1878, named Newton Health.

Newton Health performed as a conventional football club with no special activities or victory. Until 1892, they stepped in a Football League which was the very first season where they competed with local opponents.

The faith of Newton Health did not brighten up afterward, and it ended up being relegated after two years sneaking into their first show.

Luckily, a group of local business people has taken over the club and gave it another name – Manchester United. Now, a new life got created in 1902.
