Tranmere Rovers Football Club (nicknamed Super White Army, The Rovers or The Whites) is a professional association football club based in Birkenhead, Merseyside, England. Tranmere Rovers were, initially, formed as Belmont Football Club when the football arms of two cricket clubs – Lyndhurst Wanderers and Belmont – came together in 1884. The Club won its first match against Brunswick Rovers 4-0 on November 15, 1884. Less than one year later, the Club changed its name to Tranmere Rovers Football Club and took to the pitch in blue shirts and white shorts at Steeles Field on Borough Road, Birkenhead. By 1887, Rovers had moved ground to Ravenshaws Field, which was later renamed Prenton Park.
Under John Aldridge, Tranmere experienced a number of cup runs, most notably reaching the 2000 Football League Cup Final. Other cup runs include reaching FA Cup quarter-finals in 2000, 2001 and 2004. Despite being geographically closest to Everton and Liverpool, Tranmere's time in the lower leagues has meant that they have rarely met either club and have built up traditional rivalries with near neighbours Chester, Wrexham and Southport, all of whom are now non-league clubs. Tranmere fans listed the more distant Bolton Wanderers and Oldham Athletic as their biggest rivals, followed by Everton, Liverpool and Crewe Alexandra. Tranmere play their home games at Prenton Park, which also hosts Liverpool's women and reserves teams.
