Blackpool's least successful period was in the 1980s, particularly when, in the 1982–83 season, they finished 21st in English League football's lowest tier, their lowest-ever league finish.
The club's motto is Progress, as featured on the club crest.
In the 1999–2000 season, the club achieved the rare feat of completing a quadruple by winning the Süper Lig, the Turkish Cup, the UEFA Cup and the UEFA Super Cup in a single season.
Galatasaray is also the only Turkish club to have been ranked first on the IFFHS World Rankings.
The expanded Main Stand now towers of the rest of the stadium and even makes the Kop Stand (with a capacity of 13,000) look rather small.
The Main Stand itself looks smart with single rows of executive boxes located between the tiers and having the players tunnel and team dugouts located at out front. Mostly made up of transparent panels to allow more light to the pitch, it protrudes out over the stand by quite some distance and is curved to each side of the stand.
