Come and visit Blackburn Rovers Football Club at Ewood Park in Blackburn for a great family day out.
This impressive stadium is home to Blackburn Rovers.
Established in 1875, Blackburn Rovers Football Club were one of the founding members of the Football League when it was established in 1888. Rovers play their home games at Ewood Park which was built in 1882. Along with Aston Villa and Everton it is one of only three clubs that helped to found both the Premier League and the Football League. In 1992 they appointed former Liverpool hero and managerial maestro Kenny Dalglish as manager. Within three years he achieved the ultimate prize, winning the Premier League title in the last game of the season – at Anfield of all places. They are the only club apart from the ‘big four’ of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City to win the title since the top-tier was re-formed as the Premier League.
The club has a motto which in Latin is ‘Arte et Labore’, but when translated to English becomes ‘by skill and hard work’. They have won the FA Cup six times, most recently in 1928. They won the League Cup a little bit more recently that that in 2002, whilst they won the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2007. Although their Premier League win is the most famous of their trophies they’ve actually won the top-tier of the English game three times and finished as runners-up in the Premier League the year before they won it.
There’s lots going on at the club for families and kids to enjoy!
