Today marks the 150th anniversary of the English Football Association, many happy returns.

The governing body of the country that founded the beautiful game began on October 26, 1863 and at NBC Sports Network, we thought it would be appropriate to celebrate the landmarks occasion.

It is known across the globe as simply The FA and it’s the oldest football association in the world. The FA are responsible for overseeing all aspects of the amateur and professional game in England.

Anyway, enough from me, watch the awesome video above.
