Tonight we are heading to Craven Cottage, the stadium for the football (soccer for my American readers) team Fulham, located in London. This will be our third football match in England since we moved here in September. These grounds have been Fulham’s home since 1896. In 2004 the stadium was refurbished and it seats 25,700 people. The temperature will be quite cold this evening. They are forecasting that it will be 34 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius). I’ll have to bundle up. The good news is that no rain is in the forecast.
Previously we have seen a match at Wembley Stadium and at Stamford Bridge, home of the Chelsea Football Club, which is also located in London. For two sports nuts, we are in heaven. I’m excited to see the action tonight!
Here are some photos of our time at Stamford Bridge last December.
