Blackpool Football Club is an English professional football club. Their home ground is located at Bloomfield Road in the centre of the resort of Blackpool in north-west England.

Blackpool FC are known as the Seasiders or Tangerines. Their team colour is tangerine.

The club's most famous achievement was winning the FA Cup in 1953 (in the so-called Matthews final) when they beat Bolton Wanderers 4 - 3, overturning a 1-3 deficit in the closing stages of the game.

The club is currently in the Football League One.

Although the main entrance (via the now demolished South stand) used to be on Bloomfield Rd, since the re-development of the North and West stands, the main access to the ground is Seasiders Way.
