Blackpool FC was founded in 1887; since 1901 the club's home ground has been Bloomfield Road. Blackpool are also known as the Seasiders and the Tangerines, the latter in reference to the colour of their home kit.
Blackpool's most notable achievement is winning the 1953 FA Cup Final, the famous "Matthews Final" in which they beat Bolton Wanderers 4–3, overturning a 1–3 deficit in the closing stages of the game. During that post-war period, Blackpool made three Wembley appearances in six years and came close to winning the League Championship on several occasions.
Blackpool holds the record for being the only club in English football to be promoted through all four divisions via the play-offs.
