Fulham Trivia

Last updated : 05 February 2010 By Kevin Markey
  • Fulham took part in the first ever British game to be played on a Sunday (against Millwall) in 1974, which was staged at Craven Cottage. (The second Sunday game also took place in the same fixture a year later.)
  • Fulham R.F.C. played at Craven Cottage between 1980 and 1984, hosting their largest attendance. The ground has also hosted Oxbridge varsity matches in rugby and football.
  • The ground has hosted the most Socceroo matches outside of Australia and was one of the pioneers in hosting (neutral) international friendlies.
  • Fulham are the last team to have standing accommodation in the Premier League, as Craven Cottage included terraces in the 2001-02 season - eight years after the Taylor Report outlawed terraces at this level.
  • The original Craven Cottage site was covered in woodlands. One plane tree survives today in a corner of the Putney End, the sole tree to be found in any British senior football stadium.
