The Craven Cottage is one of Premier League’s stadiums with the richest historical background. The site was originally a royal hunting lodge and has a history dating back over 300 years. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jeremy Bentham, Florence Nightingale, and even Queen Victoria are reputed to have stayed there before representatives of Fulham acquired the land. The game established itself as a stadium when numerous football and rugby games cemented the ground.
In modern times, the Craven Cottage houses the Premier League’s Fulham F.C. since 1896. But it also has been used by the United State men’s national soccer team, Australia national football team, Republic of Ireland National Football team, Canada men’s national football team, and Fulham RLFC of the Rugby League.
