Craven Cottage Stadium History

Fulham FC purchase Craven Cottage in 1894 after several years before playing across varied pitches throughout the local area. The first match was a 4-0 win over Minerva on 10th October 1896. The first stand built at Craven Cottage only lasted 18 months before being condemned by the local council.

In 1905, work started on a new stand on Stevenage Road after the club had secured a 99 year lease on the ground. In the time before the first stand was built and this new stand were approved the seating was provided by way of earthworks from excavations from the Tube system nearby.

The changing rooms were added to the famous cottage and the new stand was completed for the start of the 1905/06 season with the opening game having a recorded attendance of 20,000. Craven Cottage was also used for an England international game vs Wales in March 1907.

In the pre-war period it wasn’t unusual for crowds at Craven Cottage to reach 40,000 with the record attendance being set in a game vs Millwall in 1938 at 49,335.

Floodlights were added in 1962 along with an electronic scoreboard and in 1965 a a roof was installed on the Hammersmith End terrace.

In 1972 The Eric Miller Stand was renamed The Riverside Stand after re-development. The ground required significant re-development following the clubs promotion to the Premier League in 2001 – specifically the need to be an all seater stadium which meant two seasons away from Craven Cottage whilst the ground was re-configured.

in 2005 The Stevenage Road Stand was renamed The Johnny Haynes Stand following the his death and in celebration of Fulham’s record goal scorer and appearance holder. The stand and cottage are now Grade II listed buildings.

In 2019 agreements were put in place to re-develop the Riverside Stand to increase capacity whilst also improving facilities in the stadium. This work is currently on-going and means the Riverside Stand has a reduced capacity at the moment.
