Ewood Park is located in Blackburn, Lancashire, England, and the home of Blackburn Rovers FC, founding members of the Football League and Premier League since 1890. It is an all seater multi-sports facility with a capacity of 31,367, and four sections: the Bryan Douglas Darwen End, Riverside Stand (on the banks of the River Darwen), Ronnie Clayton Blackburn End, and Jack Walker Stand,named after Blackburn industrialist and club supporter, Jack Walker. Football had been played on the site since at least 1881; Rovers played four matches there when it was known as Ewood Bridge and was most likely little more than a field. Their first match was against Sheffield Wednesday on 9 April 1881. Ewood Park was officially opened in April 1882 and during the 1880s staged football, athletics and some form of greyhound racing (not oval). Rovers moved back in during 1890. In 1994 the last ground’s transfirmation was completed. The new stadium symbolised a new era for the club and was a fitting home for the soon to be champions of England.
