Partick Thistle Football Club (nicknamed the Jags) are a professional football club from Glasgow, Scotland. Despite their name, the club are based at Firhill Stadium in the Maryhill area of the city, and have not played in Partick since 1908. The club have been members of the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) since its formation in 2013. Thistle currently compete in the Scottish Championship, the second tier of the SPFL structure, following relegation via play-offs from the Scottish Premiership in the 2017–18 season.
Since 1936, Thistle have played in their distinctive red-and-yellow jerseys of varying designs, with hoops, stripes and predominantly yellow tops with red trims having been used, although in 2009 a centenary kit was launched in the original navy-blue style to commemorate 100 years at Firhill.
Since 1908 the club have won the Scottish Second Division once and the Scottish First Division (second tier, now the Scottish Championship) six times, most recently in 2013. Thistle have won the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup in 1921 and 1971 respectively.
The club are managed by former defender Alan Archibald, who took over the role on 30 January 2013, following the departure of Jackie McNamara to Dundee United. Under Archibald's management, the club achieved promotion to the newly formed Scottish Premiership in 2013, and remained there for five consecutive seasons. During this spell Thistle secured major investment and in 2017 finished in the top six of Scottish football for the first time in over three decades. Key players such as club legend Kris Doolan broke numerous records and became one of the club’s top goal scorers. Despite relegation in the 2017-18 Scottish Premiership season, Archibald remained as Thistle's manager.
