Ground Sixfields Stadium,

Northampton Town Football Club, (often simply known as Northampton, or by their nickname The Cobblers, after the local shoemaking industry) are an English professional football club based in Northampton, Northamptonshire. Northampton were formed in 1897, after meetings between the town’s schoolteachers and local solicitor A.J. Darnell. They play their home games at Sixfields Stadium, having moved in 1994 from the County Ground which they shared with the owners, Northamptonshire County Cricket Club.

Chelsea have played Northampton on three occasions, all in 1965, and all resulting in Chelsea victories. First an FA Cup tie in the 1964-65 season, and two matches in the First Division on successive days in the following December, during Northampton's only season in the top flight.
