Craven Cottage Riverside Stand

Craven Cottage was once a royal hunting lodge, but has been a stadium and the home of Fulham FC since 1896. It sits at the edge of Bishops Park in Fulham, and its western stand runs alongside the Thames.

It’s known as the Riverside Stand, and was long the target of redevelopment aimed at increasing the ground’s capacity. In 2019 the old stand was demolished and a new one built in its place, offering shiny new corporate hospitality spaces and an extra 3,900 seats for fans.

The new Riverside Stand was completed in time for the 2022–23 season, which saw Fulham return to the Premier League.
