However. if you want to know the actual first English team to play under floodlights it was Thames Ironworks an amateur club in London played many games between 1895 - 1898 under floodlights. They were not actual league games but they did play against Arsenal in a friendly match. When this club eventually joined the Southern League they were asked to stop playing under floodlights. They did and stopped in 1898. In 1900 this club became known as West Ham United.
