Craven Cottage Stadium Guide
Craven Cottage has a history that goes back to 1780 when a cottage was built in the woods and the surrounding fields were used for various sports.
The site, however, later fell into disuse and the original cottage burned down in 1888.
Fulham had already played at various grounds when their eye fell on the site close to the river Thames. After cleaning up the overgrown field, they played their first match at the ground in 1896.
Craven Cottage at that time consisted of nothing more than a basic wooden stand. Craven Cottage was further expanded with terraces in the next decades and reached its record attendance in 1938 when a total of 49,335 spectators attended a game against Millwall.
