Known to the locals as Bloomers, Bloomfield Road is Blackpool’s purpose-built football stadium. Home to Blackpool FC since 1901, the fortunes of the town’s local team may go up and down more times than the Big Dipper at the Pleasure Beach, but the fans remain loyal and the 17,338-capacity ground still rocks to their chants come match days. If you fancied catching a game while you’re on a Blackpool city break, you may be in luck - tickets rarely sell-out. But if you do miss out on a chance to cheer on the ’Pool, why not take a stadium tour instead to soak up some of the club’s fascinating history?
Why not blow the whistle on your footie-mad Blackpool visit in style, by booking into a Premier Inn near Blackpool FC? There’s one just a 15-minute walk away - making it perfect for a post-match pit-stop before you head out for a night on the town.
