INSIGHT AND FACTS
Charlton Athletic Football Club aka The Addicks, or Red Robins. Founded in 1905, when a number of youth clubs in South-East London combined, to form Charlton Athletic.
The most likely origin of the Addicks nickname is from a local fishmonger, Arthur "Ikey" Bryan, who rewarded the team with meals of haddock and chips. A cartoon, from1908, calls the team the Haddocks. By 1910, the name had changed to Addicks.
After the end of the First World War, a chalk quarry known as the Swamps was used for the club’s new ground, and this then became The Valley.
During the 1940’s the club had one of the largest support bases in the country, and in 1947 the club won the FA Cup.
The Addicks did spend seven years ground sharing, at Crystal Palace and West Ham between 1985 and 1992. Since the return to The Valley, three sides of the ground have been completely redeveloped with plans to develop further in the future.
The Valley is currently an all-seater stadium with a capacity of 27,111.
The Valley's North Stand is known by locals as "The Covered End" to this day and is where the more vocal fans gather. The stand also houses restaurants and executive suites.
The West Stand has the largest capacity, and is two-tiered. This also houses the club’s offices, director’s box, boardroom and the commercial centre. There are many conferencing rooms in this stand, which are used for official and community events.
The East Stand consists of a single tier of seats and houses the executive boxes. The Jimmy Seed Stand (South Stand) is the oldest part of the ground, and hosts the away fans.
In 2004 the Unity Cup was held at the Valley with Nigeria winning the competition.
The Addicks are currently in League One, the third tier of English football.
In the long-running BBC sitcom Only Fools And Horses, Rodney ‘Charlton’Trotter, is named after the Club.
