Bournemouth Information, In Brief

The club came into existence in 1899, but then it had the name of Boscombe FC.

Bournemouth plays their home games at Dean Court which has a capacity of 11,360. They also began by playing their football at King’s Park before moving to Dean Court in 1910.

Club Nickname

Of course, AFC Bournemouth has the nickname of The Cherries. Their football strips are red and black which reflects this. Indeed, their strip may have given them the nickname. But the likelihood is that the nickname came about because Dean Court was next to many cherry orchids.

AFC Bournemouth Honours

Although the club has hit the heights of the top leagues in England, it hasn’t always been this way. For the most part, Bournemouth was playing in the third or fourth tier of English football.

Their rise to the top flight was sudden in the 2014/15 season when they won the Championship title. But before this, AFC Bournemouth has won very few honours.

Not being too harsh on the club, Bournemouth has won the League One title (third tier) (1987). They also won the Football League Trophy in 1984.

Bournemouth’s trophy cabinet is pretty bare but we hope this changes over the next few years.

Football Club Rivalry

Although Bournemouth has no real fierce rivalry, they did try and become rivals with Southampton. However, many people believe that the club needs to establish itself before this happens.
