Football Weekends in London – Great Venues for Great Sport

April 28, 2022 0 Comments

If you are on a weekend break in London, there is always plenty to do but you may want your time in the capital to be more focussed. Perhaps the ladies will go out shopping or perhaps to a salon for a bit of well deserved pampering. Meanwhile the guys might want to enjoy some sport and there is always a sporting event to attend at the weekend in London.

Football – If you are a football fan, then you are pretty much spoiled for choice in the capital. Probably the most difficult task will be to actually obtain match day tickets. However, if you can secure some coveted Premier League tickets, a feast of football awaits.

White Hart Lane – Home to Tottenham Hotspur FC. Down the years Spurs teams have been known for their attractive playing style and for having an affinity with the FA Cup, although it is some years since they last picked the trophy up.

Stamford Bridge – Home to Chelsea FC who (at the time of writing) are FA Cup holders and European Champions. You are sure to see an array of world stars playing in the blue of Chelsea with some of the current crop including names like Torres, Mata and Hazard.

The Emirates – Home to Arsenal FC otherwise known as the Gunners. Arsenal moved to the Emirates Stadium in 2006 from their previous home Highbury. The Gunners remain one of the most consistent teams in the Premier League despite its lack of silverware in recent years.

Upton Park – Home to West Ham United FC who are nicknamed the Hammers. Not quite as successful as some of the www.ufabet so called “bigger” clubs in London but are historically known to play decent football with lots of flair and have won the FA Cup three times.

Loftus Road – Home to Queens Park Rangers. QPR were the first team in the upper leagues of British football to install an artificial plastic pitch. Several other clubs followed suit during the 1980’s but QPR went back to a natural turf surface in 1988.

Craven Cottage – Home to Fulham FC who despite recent successful seasons in the Premiership has never won a major honour in the game. Fulham’s current status as a Premier League team is all the more remarkable considering that in 1997 they were in the fourth tier of English football.

There are also a host of other London football clubs that compete outside the top division if tickets to the top matches are proving elusive. Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic, Millwall, Brentford, Leyton Orient, AFC Wimbledon are just some of the places you could enjoy some time at the football during your London weekend break.
