History and description

Football was first played at the site of Bloomfield Road in 1887. In 1899, a football stadium with a modest capacity was built. The first match was played on the 21st of October of that year between South Shore FC and the 1st South Lancashire Regimen. Soon after, South Shore FC merged with Blackpool FC, and the stadium became known as Blackpool F.C. Park. The north terrace was later replaced by a second one, the East Stand, in 1957. The entire Bloomfield Road stadium got extensively rebuilt in 2009-10, increasing its capacity to over 40,000.

No further developments were made until in 1954 the East Paddock was extended. By the mid 1960s the stadium could hold up to 38,000 fans but this was soon reduced when several standing areas were converted into seats. At the same time the Spion Kop received partial cover.

During the 1990s, Bloomfield Road experienced deterioration and increased safety standards necessitated further reductions in its capacity.

However, this also failed to get off the ground. Several initiatives were launched to build a new stadium, but all failed to materialize. In 2000, the club changed course and presented plans to redevelop the existing field. However, this also failed to get off the ground.

One year later, the Spion Kop and West Stand were demolished and replaced by new stands. In 2003, it was the turn of the East and South Stand to get demolished, but no new stands were built yet.

It took until 2010 for a new South Stand to be built. A temporary structure occupied the East End, which was gradually improved, most recently in 2011.
