Blackpool currently play in the Championship after recently playing the Premier League in the 2010-11 season where they became the first ever team in English football to have won promotion from every division of the Football League via the play-off system. Nicknamed the 'Seasiders', Blackpool wear tangerine shirts with white shorts first seen in the 1920s and the shirts are manufactured by Fila and sponsored by Wonga who have sponsored them for three seasons. Blackpool's away shirt is white with tangerine shorts and the third shirt is the 125th anniversary special kit which is navy blue to commemorate one of their first ever shirts back in the late 19th century.
Blackpool were formed in 1877, the club play at 11,295 capacity Bloomfield Road in Lancashire. They are known as the Tangerines (from their bright orange shirts) or the sea-siders due to their location on the North West of England's coast.
