Visit Britain are looking to find football’s biggest super fan, and if you’re looking to find the city with the most high-profile clubs – look no further than London!
No less than 5 teams in the Premier League reside in London, with Chelsea, West Ham, Arsenal, Tottenham and Crystal Palace all competing in the English top flight from England’s capital.
Many of the clubs, most notably Chelsea and Arsenal, have a rich history of numerous trophy wins – with the latter earning particular success over the last decade or so.
Crystal Palace are, perhaps, the least well-known side in the capital – though having now spent a few years in the Premier League, their star is certainly rising – particularly if Sam Allardyce can keep them up this season.
For those visiting the capital, your time will not be complete without a visit to a big football stadium, so let’s take a bit more of an in-depth look at some of the bigger clubs in London…
Chelsea had a dormant year last season, but they have come back stronger than ever in the 2016/17 campaign.
Under the tutelage of Antonio Conte, the Blues – as they are affectionately known – look set to regain top spot in the Premier League this season.
They play their football at Stamford Bridge, which is set to be developed over the next few years.
Though they are not the most historic team in the Premier League, the past decade has been impressive from the Blues.
Arsenal have had a dormant spell in recent years under Arsene Wenger, but fans will remember how successful he made the side during his early years.
With a plethora of FA Cups and Premier League’s behind them, there is no doubting that Arsenal are one of the most successful and impressive clubs in the capital.
They play their football at the Emirates Stadium, with over 50,000 fans squeezing into the North London-based stadium every single week.
Tottenham are certainly a side on the up, with manager Mauricio Pochettino arguably one of the best young managers in the Premier League.
They are fierce rivals with Arsenal, given that the two sides dominate North London, and whilst the Lilywhites – as they are known – have struggled in the past, they’re beginning to look like a real force.
With a focus on young, English talent – they are definitely a side to watch.
They play at White Hart Lane and have a hugely passionate fan base.
West Ham have had a mixed season, but if you’re looking for a passionate, loyal fan base – look no further than the Hammers.
They currently play at the London Stadium, which whilst not designed as a football stadium, will serve as a foundation to continue to grow as a club.
Under the tutelage of Slaven Bilic, West Ham are a side that is on the up despite a poor season this year.
