The London Challenge Cup was a competition organised by the London FA specifically for clubs within Greater London. Fulham entered in the competitions inaugral season in 1908-09 and continued entering until it disbanded in 1974-75. Initially, the club took part in the London Challenge Cup as a first team competition, however, from 1931-32 onwards it became a competition for our reserves.

Fulham won the competition in the 1909-10 season after a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Tottenham, and were runners-up the following year in which Spurs got their revenge and won 2-1. The club reached the Semi-final on three other occasions; in 1912, 1919 and 1921 - every time beaten by Crystal Palace. Fulham won the competition on another two occasions when the reserves entered - once in the 1931-32 season and again in the 1951-52 season.
