Business Profile

Blackburn Rovers Football Club /ˈblækbɜːrn ˈroʊvərz/ is a professional football club in Blackburn, Lancashire, England, which competes in the Championship, the second tier of the English football league system, following promotion from League One at the end of the 2017-18 season.

The club was established in 1875, becoming a founding member of The Football League in 1888 and the Premier League in 1992. In 1890, Rovers moved to Ewood Park. Blackburn Rovers have been English champions three times, and have won six FA Cups and one Football League Cup.[2] The club has spent most of its existence in the top flight of English football.[3]

In 1992, Rovers gained promotion to the new Premier League a year after being taken over by local entrepreneur Jack Walker, who installed Kenny Dalglish as manager. In 1995, Rovers became Premier League champions.[4] In the 1998-99 season, the club was relegated. It was promoted back to the Premier League two years later, in the 2000-01 season. It has qualified for the UEFA Cup four times: once as League Cup winners, twice as the Premier League's sixth-placed team and once via the Intertoto Cup.

The club's motto is "Arte et Labore", "By Skill and Hard Work" in Latin.
