Bloomfield Road (capacity 17,338)
Bloomfield Road has been the permanent home to Blackpool FC since 1901, though the stadium itself has been completed transformed since the year 2000. In recent years, it has hosted music concerts such as Rod Stewart, Neil Diamond, and UB40.
The Stanley Matthews Stand and Mortensen Kop (North Stand) were opened in 2002. In 2010, the long awaited South Stand was opened, with both adjoining corners being filled in the following 12 months. The East Stand is a temporary stand and is currently closed for the majority of league games.
Away fans visiting Bloomfield Road are located in the Stan Mortensen Stand at one end of the stadium, where around 2,500 people can be accommodated.
On site parking at the stadium is limited, but there is an abundance of other parking options near the stadium so parking shouldn’t be a problem for visiting supporters.

Despite Blackpool South being the closest railway station to Bloomfield Road, Blackpool North is served more frequently with trains and is most likely to be where you will arrive. It is around a half an hour walk from Blackpool North to the station, so many fans just jump in a taxi or hop on the number 11 bus towards Lytham St Annes.
For those wanting to walk, turn right out of the station and follow the road around on to Springfield Road. Follow that until you reach the promenade and turn left. After around a mile, turn on to Lytham Road which forks off to the left. Continue until you can turn left on to Bloomfield Road, and then you will see the stadium on your left.
