Calcutta Cricket & Football Club, founded in 1792, is one of the oldest sports clubs in the world. The most famous of all sports clubs - the Marylebone Cricket Club - was founded in 1787, a fact gathered from a poster for a cricket match in 1837 announcing the Club's golden jubilee. If there was any written evidence of its official launch in 1787, it was destroyed by a fire at Lord's in 1825.

The present day Calcutta Cricket & Football has absorbed several sporting clubs over the centuries. Calcutta Cricket Club of 1792 vintage, Ballygunge Cricket Club (1864-1950), Calcutta Football Club (1872-1877) and the revived Calcutta Football Club set up in 1884. It is important to remember that these were not separate clubs but very much a part and parcel of the great and historic institution known today as Calcutta Cricket & Football Club.
