The sixteenth largest football stadium in the country, Pride Park has been home to Derby County FC since 1997. Prior to this, the team, known as The Rams, had been based at The Baseball Ground before moving to their impressive 33,597-capacity stadium in Pride Park. Every other week during the football season, thousands of fans don Derby County FC’s traditional black and white colours to cheer on their team.
Over the years, fans have enjoyed some great times there, including the 2007-2008 season when they secured promotion to the Premier League and their subsequent (albeit short) stay in the topflight. Pride Park Stadium, which was officially opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II, has also played host to musicians, monster trucks and other entertainment.
