A suffix to many football
teams' names (eg. Bolton Wanderers
, Wolverhampton Wanderers
, Wycombe Wanderers
Originally put on the end of the clubs' name to signify that they did not have a home ground of their own and had to play all their games at away grounds or neutral grounds. Obviously most of these teams now do have their own home stadiums, since the title 'Wanderers' was mainly put on clubs' names in the late 1800s to early 1900s.
