Blackpool Football Club is an English association football club based in Blackpool, Lancashire, that currently competes in the EFL Championship. The club was founded in 1887 and became founder members of the Lancashire League during the 1889–90 season. The team was elected to The Football League in 1896 and remained there, with the exception of the 1898–99 season where they failed to gain re-election, until the club was promoted to the Premier League in 2010. Blackpool were relegated back to the Football League for the following season where they’ve remained to the present.

  1. Record against Woolwich Arsenal included.
  2. Record against Small Heath; record against Birmingham included.
  3. The 2019–20 EFL League One was curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with league positions decided on a points-per-game basis. Blackpool did not get to play the second game against this team during that season and therefore the total number of games played is an odd number.
  4. Record against Chester included.
  5. Record against Chesterfield Town included.
  6. Record against Glossop included.
  7. Record against Leicester Fosse included.
  8. Record against Clapton Orient included; record against Orient included.
  9. Record against Newton Heath included.
  10. Record against Burslem Port Vale included.
  11. Record against Stoke included.
  12. Record against Swansea Town included.
