Description

Chesterfield Football Club is an English association football club based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, which plays in League One, the third tier in the English football league system. The club were founder members of the Football League Third Division North in 1921–22 and have remained in the Football League since that time. While they have never played in the top flight, they rose to the second tier twice in the 1930s.

Chesterfield play their home games at the 10,504 capacity Proact Stadium, having moved from their historic home of Saltergate during the summer of 2010.

Chesterfield's most notable recent successes came in the 1990s, when they won the Division Three playoff final at Wembley in 1995 and reached the FA Cup semi-finals two years later (they were the first club from outside the top two divisions to reach this stage of the competition since Plymouth Argyle in 1984). In May 2011 Chesterfield secured the League Two title, but held onto their place in League One for a single season.

In 2011, Dave Allen was given full ownership of the club and Chris Turner was appointed as the club's new Chief Executive. The 2011/12 season saw Chesterfield secure the Johnstone's Paint Trophy with a 2–0 victory over Swindon Town. A return to Wembley for the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy was secured in 2014, with Chesterfield finishing runners-up after losing 3–1 to Peterborough United.

On 3 May 2014, Chesterfield were crowned champions of League Two for a record fourth time.

Stadium or Home

The Proact Stadium (formerly known as the b2net Stadium) is an all-seater football stadium in Whittington Moor, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, on the site of the former Dema Glassworks. It is the home of Chesterfield F.C., replacing the Saltergate Recreation Ground as the club's stadium from the start of the 2010–11 season.

It has a capacity of approximately 10,500, cost £13,000,000 to build and was designed by Sheffield-based architects Ward McHugh Associates.

Initial sponsorship under the name the b2net Stadium was revealed on 14 August 2009. However, after two seasons and following the acquisition of b2net by Swedish company Proact, the renaming of the stadium to the "Proact Stadium" was officially announced on 13 August 2012.

The stadium has been chosen to stage England Under 19 and Under 21 fixtures, and hosts numerous non-footballing functions, from weddings to pop concerts.
