This is one of the oldest soccer programs and oldest stadiums in
England, dating back to the late 1800's. Wolverhampton, their team
more commonly known as just "Wolves", play in a four sided and
four standed soccer configuration which was upgraded to include a
new team store and a restaurant overlooking the pitch, but a working
scoreboard or video board remains on the "to do" list. When outside,
find the vending cart with the roast park and stuffing sandwich. It is
to die for.
STOKE CITY FC
The soccer stadium here in Stoke-On-Trent is sort of an ordinary

sleek exterior being a newer venue, but few amenities save for a

MANCHESTER CITY FC
One of the signature stadiums in all of European soccer has its
exterior facade adorned with a mural timeline of this franchise's long
and glorious history. the concourses are replete with pubs and
premium seating lounges. Don't even mention Manchester United in
this part of town, the two clubs are hated rivals.
Derby County is one of the oldest football clubs in England, and

office park here in the East Midlands,
How about a football ground that is actually wrapped into an actual
cottage, a statue of pop star Michael Jackson on the outside, and a
team owned by the same guy who owns the NFL Jacksonville
Jaguars. This stadium is located in a beautiful parklike setting in
southwest London in the Putney Bridge neighborhood.
Birmingham's Aston Villa team is one of the 12 founding members
of the English Premier League, its history going all the way back to
1897. These grounds also have a long and storied history. The
stadium was completely rebuilt in the 1970s, but still retains an old
This football program actually caught lightning in a bottle, getting
promoted to the Premier League for one magical season back in
2010-2011. The city of Blackpool's claim to fame is also being the
home setting for the long time running program "Coronation Street"
This stately and old and creeky football pitch is just a long penalty

Liverpool FC. Goodison's best quality is the adjoining
neighborhood, where the street come alive with many pubs, shops,
vending carts and a general party atmosphere.
