Visited for the Blackpool and Everton Friendly. Stewards were super friendly and were on hand to support me with my ticket issue. Facilities in the ground were good with good views all round with no obstructions. Parking around the ground was easy with plenty of parking around the ground. Reasonable prices also inside the stadium for food and drink.

3/4 of the ground is quality. Really like it especially the orange. 1/4 of the ground (away end) rubbish! And a wind trap Blackpool in general is a place I like but, also the weirdest place I've ever been

Visited Blackpool fc vs Luton. Got a good seat right next to the players tunnel. Only a small stadium but packs in a good atmosphere. Basic food and drink available in the concourse but not aloud to take to seat. Recommended coming here to watch the tangerines!! 🍊🟧

History (from Wikipedia)

Bloomfield Road is a single-tier football stadium in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, which has been the home of Blackpool F.C. since 1901. It is the third stadium in the club's existence, the previous two being Raikes Hall Gardens and the Athletic Grounds.

Largely unchanged since the 1960s, the stadium began a redevelopment phase in the early 2000s. A temporary East Stand was erected before the start of the 2010–11 season, the club's debut in the 
Premier League. It is still in place today. The three permanent stands are named the Stan Mortensen North Stand (denoted by the acronym "B.F.C." spelled out in white seats, the Jimmy Armfield South Stand (with the former player's last name spelled out in white seats) and the Sir Stanley Matthews West Stand (with one of the club's nicknames, "SEASIDERS", spelled out in white seats).

The record attendance at Bloomfield Road is 38,098, when Blackpool played 
Wolverhampton Wanderers on 17 September 1955.[5]

The stadium hosted three matches of the 
2005 UEFA Women's Championship. It has also been the venue for the final of the Northern Rail Cup, a rugby league tournament.

Transport[edit]

Blackpool South railway station is roughly half a mile from Bloomfield Road, although this station is only served by local services. Blackpool North, which is served by services from York and Leeds (via Burnley), Liverpool and Manchester, is over two miles away. The number 11 bus runs from the bus station opposite Blackpool North towards Lytham St Annes. Fans can alight at the Bridge House pub and walk to the ground.[83]
