Blackburn Rovers Football Club (nicknamed Rovers, The Blue and Whites and
The Riversiders) are a professional football club based in Blackburn, Lancashire. The club was founded following a meeting, at the Leger Hotel, Blackburn, on 5 November 1875 - becoming a founding member of The Football League in 1888. It is one of only three clubs to have been both a founder member of the Football League and the Premier League (the others being Aston Villa and Everton). In 1890, Rovers moved to Ewood Park - which remains their home ground to this day. Blackburn Rovers have been English First Division Champions three times, and have won six FA Cup and one Football League Cup. They are also the only club to have won three consecutive FA Cups. Their most prominent rivals are Burnley - with matches between the two teams termed the East Lancashire Derby or the Cotton Mills Derby.
