Due to the clubs early success, WBA ended up moving four times in seven years since founding before ending at Stoney Lane where they enjoyed FA Cup success twice. In 1900 the lease expired and so the club moved to The Hawthorns on a 14 year lease with option to buy which they did in 1913 and so they have remained since. It is so named due to the hawthorn bushes that needed to be cleared in order to build it.
At 168m, it is the highest of all UK football league stadiums. Concrete terracing was added in 1920, the first electric turnstile in Britain was installed in 1949, 1957 brought electric floodlights. In 1968 CCTV was implemented to attempt to reduce hooliganism. Over time the capacity reduced from an estimated 60,000 to eventually 25,000 following the Taylor Report. In line with their implementation of modern technologies, WBA became the first club to have widescreen TVs in 2002.
Expansion plans were revealed in 2003 to increase to a 40,000 all seater, but were scrapped following Premiership relegation in 2006.
