Blackburn Rovers Football Club is an English club based in Blackburn. They currently feature in the English Premier League.
Blackburn Rovers are one of three teams to be founder of both the Football League (in 1888) and the English Premier League.
Blackburn Rovers were found on November 5,1875 and won their first FA Cup in 1884. They won the competition again in 1885, 1886, 1890, 1891 and 1928.
Blackburn Rovers won League Division 1 (now the Premier League) in 1911-1912 and 1913-1914 but their best moment in history arrived as recently as 1994.
Blackburn Rovers won the English Premier League in the 1994-1995 season under the leadership of Jack Walker. Walker had bought the club five years previous to that when it was languishing in the old Second Division.
However, that Premier League triumph appeared to be an one-off as the club got relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 1998-1999 season and are the only club so far to have won the Premier League and been relegated.
However Blackburn have since bounced back and are now a regular force in the Premiership, consistently venturing for a UEFA Cup spot.
Blackburn play their home matches at Ewood Park which can hold a total crowd of 31,267 and bear the nickname Rovers, Blues and Whites and the Pride of Lancashire.
