About Craven Cottage Stadium
Craven Cottage was originally a royal hunting lodge, but since 1896 it has been the home of Fulham F.C. The original cottage was built in 1780 by William Craven and was destroyed by a fire in 1888. It was then abandoned until Fulham took up residence there 8 years later, earning the club the nickname of “The Cottagers”.
The stadium has a capacity of 19,359, although it hosted 49,335 football fans in 1938 when Fulham played Millwall.
