Pride Park Stadium

Pride Park Stadium is the home of Derby County Football Club and has a capacity of 33,597. The ground opened in 1997, replacing the club’s former home at the Baseball Ground which they had played at since 1895.

The new stadium was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II on the 18th July 1997. The first match was played on the 4th August as Sampdoria defeated Derby County 1-0 with a goal from Vincenzo Montella. The first competitive match on the 13th August, a Premiership fixture against Wimbledon, had to be called off after 56 minutes following a floodlight failure.

England played an international friendly match in 2001 against Mexico, winning 4-0 thanks to goals from Paul Scholes, Robbie Fowler, David Beckham and Teddy Sheringham. The England U21s have also played several matches at Pride Park and Brazil faced Ukraine at the stadium in 2010, winning 2-0 with goals from Dani Alves and Alexandre Pato.
