Premier League Stadiums Ranked

Updated on February 1, 2016

A brief introduction to Premier League Stadiums

The Premier League, England's top and premier footballing division, boasts 20 stadiums. Modern Stadiums, such as The Emirates (Home to Arsenal football club) and The Etihad (Home to Manchester City) focus on capacity and functionality and beautifully showcase modern architecture, however many would argue that they lack a sense of atmosphere. Smaller stadiums such as The Britannia (of Stoke), Selhurst Park (of Crystal Palace) and Vicarage Road (of Watford) are of a more old fashioned style and their fantastic atmosphere is shown by this.

This article will try to rank the stadiums of the Premier League based on personal opinion, so without further ado...

Ranking the top 10 Premier League Stadiums

10. Goodison Park (Everton) - A very large ground with a fantastic history, famous for its old fashioned style. However, 2 of the stands clearly are in need of replacement. For history and size however, this stadium is a must see for anyone visiting Liverpool at the time of a match.

9. Anfield (Liverpool) - A very famous ground of a hugely successful team. Anfield has been the home to Liverpool Football Club since 1892, and has had legends of the game grace its hallowed turf - from John Barnes to Ian Rush to Steven Gerrard

8. Villa Park (Aston Villa) - A large stadium situated in Birmingham with a fantastic character and feel to it. The outside of the Holte End (where many of the more vocal Villa Supporters sit) is beautifully designed with a mosaic of the club's emblem and name. The views from all 4 stands are beautiful. However, the concourses in the North and Doug Ellis Stand Upper is far too small and are rather uncomfortable.

7. Vicarage Road (Watford) - Small (capacity of 21,000) yet very atmospheric. The addition of the new 'Sir Elton John Stand' gives the stadium a modern and functional feel and the stadium is generally tidy with no restricted views. It is also situated very near London, and can be reached by a 17 minute train from London Euston. Great for any visitors to England, wishing to witness an authentic Premier League game.

6. Stamford Bridge (Chelsea) - Rather large, but not overly. The atmosphere in both the Shed and Matthew Harding End's are top class and the facilities and concourses are lovely and spacious. The views from the Upper Tier are lovely as well, making it a very popular stadium for tourists to visit.

5. White Hart Lane (Tottenham Hotspur) - This stadium has 4 very similar two tiered stands, yet still feels very unique. The seats are very near the pitch which can create a wonderfully intimidating atmosphere. The facilities and views are also very nice although transport after matches can often take a little too long for one's preference.

4. St. James' Park (Newcastle) - An iconic stadium with two absolutely huge two-tiered stands. A wonderful ground that from the upper tiers of these stands offers fantastic views not only of the pitch but also of the magnificent city of Newcastle beneath.

3. The Etihad (Manchester City) - After the recent addition of a third tier to the South End of the stadium, the ground looks phenomenal. This is furthered by the tremendous match day atmosphere, particularly within the areas nearest the away supporters. Views are unbelievable, particularly from the second tier, with facilities also being impressive.

2. The Emirates (Arsenal) - A true gem of a ground for comfort and experience. Very large and the padded seats in the majority of the stadium also add a luxury feel to the supporter experience. One thing that must be added however is that atmosphere is poor at times, however this is a stadium like no other in terms of visitor satisfaction.

1. Old Trafford (Manchester United) - The Theatre of Dreams - home of the famous Manchester United Football Club, famous for their success as one of the dominant teams in English football. The stadium is the largest in the Premier League and the atmosphere - particularly in the Stretford End of the ground is like no other. A beautiful stadium.
