"If you want some accessible but informative insight into football then I suggest you couldn't do better than the Political Economy of Football website, which is not only intelligible but comes with the added bonus of being written by Addicks fan Wyn Grant."

The club founded in 1887 and has been a member of the Football League continuously since 1900. The club's home ground has been Bloomfield Road since 1901; capacity of the stadium was 10,035 (early 2009) although the new 'Jimmy Armfield South Stand', is due to open in December 2009.

Blackpool's most notable achievement is winning the 1953 FA Cup Final, the so-called "Matthews Final", in which they beat Bolton Wanderers 4–3. Thirty years later, in 1982–83, Blackpool finished four places from the bottom of the Football League, their lowest-ever ranking in the competition, and were only saved from relegation to the Alliance Premier League (now the Conference) because the re-election system voted in their favour.

The management of the professional football club and its stadium facilities is carried out by the company Segesta Limited.
