Description

For 119 years, Victoria Ground was the home ground of Stoke City FC. However, in 1997 the club moved to the Britannia Stadium and began playing there. The club had its first football team in 1875, but it was not until 1878 that they moved to their present home.

On the 28th of Match 1878, Stoke played Talke Rangers at the Victoria Ground. The match ended in a 0-1 victory for Stoke.

Despite the limited changes to the ground, over the following decades very few new stadiums were constructed in Victoria. In contrast, modern concrete stadiums were built all around the country, with only Victoria Ground remaining as just a small bank and a wooden stand.

As the First World War came to a close, stadium developments continued with the construction of two extra stands. This continued into the 1930s and by that time, the Boothen End was fully terraced.

In 1985 a new main stand, the Ninian Park Stand, was built. The new stand could seats about 17,000 fans and would be the showcase stand for the following three decades.

The record attendance of the ground was set in a League match against Arsenal in 1937. On that day, 51,380 people visited the match.

In 1963, a new main stand was built at Boothen Road, which coincided with the club's centenary. In order to celebrate, the club played against the legendary Real Madrid side.

During the storm in January 1976, the roof of the Butler Street Stand was blown off. As a result of the repair works, which were conducted severely in terms of financial depletion, the club's relegation in 1976 happened indirectly.

However, Stoke bounced back a few years later and saw Victoria Ground further improved with the construction of a new two-tier stand at the Stoke End. This addition gave the ground a unique look with two different sets of floodlights.

Further renovations were made in the 1980s to improve corporate facilities. In 1994 Stoke announced the construction of a new all-seater stand, which would have held 9,000 supporters, however plans were never realised as the club opted for the construction of a new stadium instead. A complete renovation of Victoria Ground would have been too expensive.

The remaining regular season matches were played at the Britannia Stadium. Victoria Ground had a maximum capacity of 22,500 people at its final years. The last official match at the ground was played on the 4th of May 1997. The league match between Stoke and West Brom ended in a 2-1 Stoke win. The remaining regular season matches were played at the Britannia Stadium.

After that match several low-key matches were still played at the ground, and the actual last match was a pre-season friendly against Coventry City that only 4,000 people attended.

After Stoke moved into the Britannia Stadium, the Victoria Ground got demolished. Up to today however, no redevelopments have taken place and the site remains empty.
