When I looked I noticed these types of lists, but for me some bits are dodgy... Field Mill, for example Mansfield weren't formed until 1905, when they moved to Field Mill.

Blades were formed in 1889, cricket and sometimes Sheffield FC had used BL.

Portman Road was a sports field mostly used for rugby... Ipswich didn't turn pro until 1936.

So it seems based on sports being on site.... in which case the CG was first used in 1866, the pavilion was built in 1893 and STFC played there in 1895, before moving over in 1896.

My bad.  I thought the question was "...how many FL grounds are older than the CG?" not 'how many FL grounds have been in use by current professional FL clubs longer than the Town have been playing at the CG?'  Oh, hang on, it was!  Smiley

I think your last paragraph boxed that off anyway.

Ok. It was a bit of idle musing, so let's tighten up the qualification. Which of the current 92, have been playing professional football at their present ground for the longest period?

Doesn't have to be continuous, as wars got in the way..... but what of Fulham who moved out in 2002 to return in 2004?
