At every home match thousands of Hull City fans and visiting supporters walk to and from the KC Stadium along the walkway that leads from Argyle Street, perhaps without realising that they are passing within a short distance of Hull City AFC’s original football ground.
Hull City’s early matches were played at the Boulevard but by March 1906 a permanent ground was established adjacent to the Cricket Circle off Anlaby Road.
Hull City Supporters’ Trust is determined to recognise this important era of the club’s heritage by commissioning a piece of public art. The aim of the project is to commemorate the old ground and to act as a celebration of the thousands of our ancestors who adopted Hull City as their club over the past 111 years.
It is hoped that the project can come to fruition to link in with the “Hull 2017” – City of Culture celebrations and that there will be an opportunity to record the names of supporters past and present.
