THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

Boothferry600

Boothferry Park was Hull City's home between 1946 and 2002, when they moved to the KC Stadium. The record crowd at the ground was 55,019 when Manchester United visited in 1949, though by the end it was only holding around 15,000. It also hosted a full international between Northern Ireland and Spain in 1972, as well as a rugby league test when Australia beat Great Britain 40-4 in front of 26,771 in 1982.
