History[edit | edit source]

Prince League and Tagtraum Champions League (1984-1996)[edit | edit source]

Like most original Canadian Tagtraum sides except Tagtraum Prince FC, the team was founded in 1984. Tagtraum Prince was founded in 1983. In the seasons of 1984-1995, the team finished 3rd. In the 1995 season they finished bottom in 4th. In the 1996 season, the team won the league, qualifying for the second Tagtraum Champions League. They won it, becoming the first Canadian Tagtraum side to do so.

Non-league season (1997)[edit | edit source]

In 1996, it was announced that the Prince League was to be replaced by the Tagtraum Majors with 7 new clubs. Tagtraum English disliked the idea of a major league and tried to reform the Prince League for the 1997 season with 3 new clubs but all new sides forming that year took up slots in the Tagtraum Majors. Without a league, the side played just 2 friendlies for the whole 1997 season; one against newly formed Tagtraum Majors side National Park Wolves and another against Brittraum Premier League side Carl First FC.

Brittraum Secondary Division and Tagtraumian (1998-present)[edit | edit source]

In late 1997, a new league was announced in Brittraum, the Brittraum Secondary Division. Tagtraum English was invited to join the league and gratefully accepted. They joined alongside the newly formed clubs Pepsi Brittraum, Carl Second and Queens FC. The team won the 1998 season and qualified for the first and so far only Tagtraumian which had replaced the Champions League for the 1998 season for unknown reasons. The winner of the Brittraum Secondary Division would face runners-up of the Tagtraum Majors, which that season was Tagtraum Prince. Tagtraum English won 2-0. Since 1998 there has been no Tagtraumian and the team is yet to win another Secondary Division title.

Kit[edit | edit source]

Tagtraum English's kit normally reflects that of the English national team. The current home kit is all white, while the away kit is navy black with light blue shorts and black socks. In previous seasons, the home kit had blue shorts and the away kit was red shirts, white shorts and red socks. In the 1996 Champions League and 1998 Tagtraumian, the team wore blue shirts, white shorts and blue socks.

Typically, to mimic the England kits, the shirts have a chest number rather than a shirt sponsor like most other clubs. However, in 1996 and 1998 their third strip was sponsored by PlayStation.
