Dunfermline Athletic FC History

Dunfermline Athletic F.C. is a Scottish football team currently playing in the Scottish Premier League. They are currently being managed by former Celtic manager Davie Hay.

Also known as DAFC, or the DA by local fans, and are nicknamed the Pars. Dunfermline were once managed by Jock Stein of Celtic and Scotland fame, and thanks to a good season in 2003/2004 they were back in Europe for the first time in 35 years when they were involved in the 2004/2005 UEFA Cup. This was to turn out in disappointment however as they lost to Icelandic team FH Hafnarfjörður in the qualifing round. Dunfermline ran into financial difficulty in 2003 and narrowly avoided going into administration.

In 2003 Dunfermline became the first European team to install a plastic artificial pitch at their East End Park stadium. The pitch is part of an experiment by UEFA to try and improve playing surfaces.
