Barrow Association Football Club is an English professional association football club based in the town of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.
The club currently participates in the Vanarama National League, the fifth tier of the English league system. The club was founded in 1901 and joined the Football League in 1921. Since 1909, Barrow have played their home games at Holker Street, (currently sponsored for the 2019/2020 season as the "Progression Solicitors Stadium"), close to the town centre and approximately half a mile from Barrow Railway Station.
The club spent over fifty years in the Football League between 1921 and 1972, achieving promotion to Division 3 by finishing 3rd in the Football League Fourth Division in the 1966–67 season. The highest ever league placing in the club's history came in the 1967–68 season, finishing 8th in League Division 3. At one stage in the season, Barrow led the way and went top of the table for the one and only time in their history. They did so, courtesy of a 1–4 away win at Hartlepools. Life in the third tier of English football was to be short-lived and relegation back to Division 4 came just two seasons later, at the end of 1969–70 season. Fortunes never improved and after being successfully re-elected to the Football League after finishing rock bottom of Division 4 in 1970–71, the following season, 1971–72 was to be Barrow’s last as a Football League club and after a failed bid for re-election, Barrow were voted out of the Football League, to be replaced by Hereford United of the Southern League. Barrow have since spent their time in the top two levels of non-league football, having been promoted five times to the Conference (of which they were a founder member), most recently as Conference North champions in 2014–15. In addition they have twice won non-league football's most prestigious cup competition, the FA Trophy – in 1990 and 2010, becoming the only club to have won the Trophy at both the old and new Wembley Stadiums.
The club colours are blue and white, though the combination of these has varied over time, leading to their nickname "The Bluebirds".
The record attendance at Holker Street is 16,874 and was set against Swansea Town in the FA Cup Third Round in 1954.
