Not too far from Old Trafford, you have Anfield, which is the home of Liverpool – the most decorated English club and another team supported by millions all over the world. With iconic players like Mohammed Salah and Virgil Van Dijk, Liverpool is a team known for their exhilarating brand of football as well as their passionate fanbase. The stadium is on the small side for such a big club at 54,074, but this does mean that there is an electric atmosphere here and many visiting players state that it is the hardest place to play in the world.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

The brand-new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is a breathtaking venue and regarded by many as the most impressive football stadium in the world. Built on the site of the former White Hart Lane (and still called this by fans), the stadium in North London has a capacity of 62,850 with an enormous single-tier south stand helping to create an imposing atmosphere for visiting teams. The stadium boasts incredible technology and is designed as a multi-purpose venue with the world’s first dividing, retractable NFL pitch.
