Blackpool Football Club are an English football club founded in 1887 and based in the Lancashire seaside town of Blackpool. The team are currently competing in the Championship, the second tier of professional football in England.

Stadium

Main article: Bloomfield Road

Blackpool have played their home games at Bloomfield Road since 1901. The stadium's capacity at the beginning of the 2012–13 season was 17,338, all-seated. In the summer of 2010, work was done on the stadium to prepare for the club's debut season in the Premier League. A new 5,120-capacity temporary East Stand was built, together with improvements to the floodlighting, media and medical facilities and the dugouts. Painting work was also done on the Stanley Matthews (West) Stand and the Mortensen Kop (North Stand). A new video screen was also installed. A new South Stand named after Jimmy Armfield was opened in 2010 with 3,600 seats. From the first home game in the Premier League, against Fulham on 28 August 2010, the capacity was 16,220, the highest at Bloomfield Road in 30 years.

In the 2011–12 season, the south east corner between the Armfield Stand and the temporary East Stand was filled with an additional 500 seats, the area also incorporating the BFC Hotel, which welcomed its first guests at the end of June 2012. It was officially opened on 26 July 2012, the club's 125th anniversary. The hotel has a four-star rating, although the source of the accreditation is not specified on its website. It also houses a conference centre. Since the 2015–16 season, the East Stand has been closed to fans.
