Craven Cottage is a football stadium located in Fulham, London. It has been the home ground of Fulham F.C. since 1896. The ground's current capacity is 25,700, all-seated, though the record attendance is 49,335, for a game against Millwall, 8 October 1938. Located next to Bishop's Park on the banks of the River Thames, 'Craven Cottage' was originally a royal hunting lodge and has history dating back over 300 years.
As well as by Fulham, the stadium has been also been used by the United States men's national football team, Australia national football team, the Republic of Ireland national football team, and Canada men's national football team, and was formerly the home ground for rugby league team Fulham RLFC.
Pre-FulhamThe original 'Cottage' was built in 1780, by William Craven, the sixth Baron Craven and was located on the centre circle of the pitch. At the time, the surrounding areas were woods which made up part of Anne Boleyn's hunting grounds.

  • Anyway, the old, still wooden part is scattered. The distance from the small pitch is also felt particularly close compared to other stadiums. In London, I visited Wembley, Emirates, Burnett, Upton Park, London Stadium, Loftus Road, Stamford Bridge, White Hart Lane and Charlton, but i like the atmosphere i like most.

  • Not a big stadium (the team plays in the second divison), but it's chic and gives you a flavour of tradition mixed with a tight community, the Fulham supporters.  more »

  • As is quite well known, Craven Cottage is an excellent place to enjoy a match, even if you're in the "away" end (Fulham even have a "neutral zone"). It's quite startling to be walking through a rather upscale neighborhood (or leafy park) and suddenly come across a football stadium, but that's part of its charm. There aren't too many big clubs that have such a distinctive ground -- even if they did remove the Michael Jackson statue -- so even if you're not a fan, it's definitely worth catching a game here.
  • Fantastic traditional football ground. Please do not change it, do not build another stadium, do not move to another stadium. This is a very nice and traditional football stadium on a very nice location near the river. Plenty of pre match drinks and food possibilities in the near area.
