Deepdale has cricketing origins. Preston North End Cricket Club moved here in 1875. The club started playing football in 1878 and it soon became the club’s sole pursuit.

 

Preston North End was the first club to win the double of the Football League First Division and the FA Cup. The club was so successful in the 1888/89 season that it didn’t lose a single game, becoming football’s first ‘Invincibles’.

 

Between the 1930s and the 1990s, little changed at Deepdale, although the Hillsborough disaster and subsequent Taylor Report impacted massively on the future of the ground. Its modernisation was influenced by the Luigi Ferraris Stadium in Genoa, which had been seen by millions of football fans during the 1990 World Cup.

 

Deepdale’s modern redevelopment was undertaken in stages, with four new stands built between 1995 and 2008. The club has artistically memorialised two of its heroes, Sir Tom Finney and Bill Shankly in coloured seating within two of the stands.
