Research reveals the 20 most Instagrammed sports stadiums across England

Liverpool FC v Chelsea FC - Premier League

Come on, admit it, you've all 'done it for the gram' at a football match.

Ok, perhaps not everybody, but more people than would like to admit have surely posed at their local football stadium, taken a selfie with their mates or uploaded a pint picture to their story.

And be very scared, because this type of data has actually been tracked and research from has looked closely at the hashtags used on Instagram. 

Collecting data up until the beginning of August, they've assessed which English stadiums have made the most appearances on the popular social media app.

It will perhaps come as little surprise that Old Trafford and Anfield lead the way, seeing their stands plastered across the internet more than double the amount of any other stadium.

Anfield claims top spot

Allianz Park in third place? Yes, we're as surprised as you are with the home of Saracens making an appearance on Instagram more than a quarter of a million times.

That's more than the home of English football - Wembley Stadium - which joins the list in fifth place and the fellow London pairing of Stamford Bridges and Emirates Stadium.

In the end, there are three stadiums flying the flag for rugby, while three cricket grounds make the cut and the London Stadium has played host to a number of sports over the years.

But when it comes to 'doing it for the gram,' nothing makes sports fans more camera-shutter-happy than the sight of the Kop.
