Wikipedia, viewed 12 August 2021 (Derby County F.C.; Derby County Football Club; professional association football club based in Derby, Derbyshire, England, and has played its home matches at Pride Park Stadium since 1997; founded in 1884 as an offshoot of Derbyshire County Cricket Club, the proposed name "Derbyshire County F.C." was rejected in order to avoid confusion with Derbyshire County Football Association; the team gets its nickname, The Rams, to show tribute to its links with the First Regiment of Derby Militia, which took a ram as its mascot; the club's first home stadium was the County Cricket Ground, also known as the Racecourse Ground; the club moved to the Baseball Ground in 1895 where it played its last first team game in May 1997 before moving to a new, purpose-built stadium at the newly regenerated Pride Park; due to sponsorship, the venue was officially known as the iPro Stadium between 2013 and 2016)
