Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal: Fan ranks every Premier League and Football League stadium

  • Kobe Tong
Liverpool play at Anfield.

The 92 challenge is one of the most prestigious feats for any football fan in England.

Travelling to every single stadium in the Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two across your entire life is enough to make you royalty amongst Football League fandom.

However, accomplishing the feat within a single season is truly the ultimate achievement with unreal levels of commitment, time and – frankly – money required to even think about pulling it off.

92 Club Challenge

But that’s exactly what Eugéne Noble has managed as part of COPA90‘s ’92 Club Challenge’, travelling the country to watch a match at all 92 league clubs across the 2021/22 campaign.

It’s made for a fascinating series in which Noble has traversed each and every corner of England and Wales, giving his thoughts on the 92 stadiums using a scoring system comprised of four categories.

Each ground was awarded a score out of 20 with the stadium’s soul, eccentricity, home support and match-day menu given either one, two, three, four or five points depending on its quality.

And now that the 2021/22 season is slowly winding down to its conclusion, Noble can officially stand tall and declare that he’s ticked off all 92 Premier League and Football League stadiums.

But who came out on top and who finished rock bottom? Well, fear not because COPA90 unveiled the final scores on Instagram this week to show the world how all 92 clubs were ranked, rated and compared.

Every Premier League and Football League stadium ranked

A tie for first place

Oooo. It’s a draw in first place!

COPA90 have explained that Noble will try and separate the two Premier League sides in due course, but for now, they’re officially crowned the best clubs out of the 92 from the perspective of a fan.

Well, ok, one fan, but that’s the joy of away days and attending football matches in person because what makes the day special is completely down to your own likes and dislikes.

Who knows, you might think that St. Mary’s Stadium has tonnes of character, Wycombe have the best support in the country and Southampton deserve a Michelin star for their grub.

Then again, is anyone more qualified than Noble to rank the 92 Premier League and Football League clubs this season having travelled to every single one of them? Take a bow son, take a bow.
