Blackpool Football Club are an English football club founded in 1887 from the Lancashire seaside town of Blackpool.
The club’s home ground has been Bloomfield Road since 1901, and their main nicknames are the Seasiders, the ‘Pool and the Tangerines, the latter in reference to the colour of their home kit, which is often mistaken for orange.
Blackpool’s most notable achievement is winning the 1953 FA Cup Final, the so-called “Matthews Final“, in which they beat Bolton Wanderers 4–3, overturning a 1–3 deficit in the closing stages of the game.
