About Fleetwood Town

Fleetwood Town are a professional football club based in the coastal town of Fleetwood, Lancashire.  Established in 1997, the current Fleetwood Town F.C. is the third incarnation of the club which first formed in 1908. They are nicknamed The “Cod Army” and play their home matches at Highbury Stadium.

Fleetwood’s shirt colour is traditionally red / white and they currently play in League One. The club won the 2011–12 Football Conference (now the National League), and played in the Football League for the first time in the 2012–13 season. In May 2014, at Wembley, Fleetwood won the promotion play-off to League One, the club’s 6th promotion in 10 years.

One of Fleetwood’s most famous previous players is Jamie Vardy, who has gone on to represent England and most recently, won the English Premier League with another one of our PUMA clubs – Leicester City.

With Fleetwood having a rich history as a fishing port, the club’s nickname is the “Cod Army”. Fleetwood Town have retained their League One status for the 2016/17 season and will be looking to improve on last season’s finish, which saw nearest rivals Blackpool FC relegated from League 1 on the final day of the season.

In 2015/16, the club opened a brand new, state of the art £6m Poolfoot farm training ground complex in nearby Thornton-in-Cleveleys with 18 grass pitches, plus a floodlit 4G AstroTurf pitch, changing rooms and on site gymnasium.
