If you've ever been watching a game and wondered who a player used to play for then the Football Database is for you.

The full version of FBDB contains details about all 37,500 players to have played in the English Premier and Football League since 1946. Search by player name or simply scroll through a team’s squads to find who you’re looking for. If you’re at a game, type in any of the player’s names to see their career history. Turn your phone sideways to see the career in our unique football card format. The data is stored on your phone so no internet connection is required.

FBDB is being added to all the time and as a bonus it also contains the more famous players from before 1946 as well. With Version 1.4.6 we've completed adding England Internationals back to the first official game against Scotland in 1872, 16 years before the Football League started. We've also added a lot of the international players to have appeared for their countries over the last few years.

Download the App for free and get immediate access to all current players and managers. An in-App expansion gives you access to the full database.

This app is great I loved it and I found it very helpful to find my favourite players in my team leeds united. I think many people could use this to find there favourite team and would be helpful to people of lots of ages. Everyone who loves football with love this app it's also just a fun app to play around with and look at other teams you might like. Thank you to the creator of this app!!

Great App!


Love this App and it does exactly what it says it does. Have used it to settle several 'who played for who' discussions. Love the new feature showing what league the team was in for each season. Gradually building into one of my most-used Apps. Can the developers add more info about the teams? Would like to see year formed, list of managers and grounds in later versions.

Great app


great app, especially for during games as can't usually get internet, eg used it to check out our new striker at away game last night. Easy to use and nice lay out, hope they keep it updated
