Map of Premier League Teams
This map details where the Premier League teams are located in the United Kingdom. But, to know more about each stadium, and the teams that call them home, continue below!
Arsenal FC started out in 1886 as a workers’ team called Dial Square. The workers were blacksmiths building cannons — hence the common Arsenal nickname “Gunners.”
In 1893, Arsenal Football Club (called Woolwich Arsenal at the time) was the first club from the South of England to join the Football League. They reached the First Division in 1904 and were only relegated once (1913). Today, they have come second in most won top-flight matches and continue the longest streak in the top division.
Location: Hornsey Rd, London N7 7AJ, UK
Emirates Stadium is named after the airline Emirates and was built from 2004 to 2006. The sponsorship deal that Arsenal FC made with Emirates for this stadium was approximately £100 million — the largest deal in the history of English football. The 60,000+ seat stadium replaced Arsenal’s previous stadium, Highbury Stadium, which had 38,419 seats.
Aston Villa is one of the oldest football clubs in Britain. The club was founded in Birmingham in 1874 by four cricket players. Villa founded the Football League in 1888 and was one of the most consistent powerhouses until the Premier League was formed in 1992. Since then, the club has seen many ups and downs in the Premier League — placing second in 1993 and sitting at the bottom in 2016.
Location: Trinity Rd, Birmingham B6 6HE, UK
Villa’s stadium has been the home to Aston Villa since 1897 and was previously known as Aston Lower Grounds. There are plans to redevelop the North Stand — which would increase the stadium's capacity from its current capacity to 50,065. The Birmingham City Council approved these plans in December 2022.
AFC Bournemouth (not to be confused with Bournemouth FC) is based in a suburb of Bournemouth, Dorset, England. The club was formed in 1899 as Boscombe and adopted its current name in 1971. The team has gained the nickname “The Cherries” and has played at their home ground of Dean Court since 1910.
Location: Kings Park, Boscombe, Bournemouth BH7 7AF, UK
Currently known as the Vitality Stadium, is the home ground of AFC Bournemouth. While the ground was given to AFC Bournemouth (called Boscombe FC at the time), in 1910, it was not ready for the beginning of the season, and the club played at King’s Park until the grounds were completed in December of 1910. Since then, AFC Bournemouth has played its home games at this stadium.
Founded in 1889, Brentford FC is affiliated with the women’s club Brentford Women FC and has rivalries with other West London-based clubs like Fulham.

The stadium hosted Premier League football in August 2017 for the first time after the team’s promotion at the end of the 2016-2017 season.
Founded in 1905 by Gus Mears, Chelsea quickly became a hit with locals and established itself as the biggest club in the capital. By the late 1910s, it became the first club in Britain, with over 40,000 in average attendance. The vast turnout made it one of the richest clubs in Britain. In 1913, Chelsea became the first team to have a non-British player (Nils Middelboe from Denmark). Today, the team has won League titles, FA Cups, and League Cups.
Location: Fulham Rd., London SW6 1HS, UK
Samford Bridge is the eleventh-largest football stadium in England and was first opened in 1877. The London Athletic Club used the stadium until 1905, when Gus Mears founded the Chelsea Football Club. The stadium has hosted Charity Shield games and many other sports — including cricket, greyhound racing, rugby, and American football.
While only formally created in 1905, the club originated in 1861 as an amateur Crystal Palace football team. The amateur club was one of the original founding members of the Football Association in 1863 but disappeared from historical records after a game against Barnes FC in 1875. The club reappeared in 1905 as a professional club and joined the Football League in 1920.
Location: Holmesdale Rd, London SE25 6PU, UK

Everton started out as St. Domingo’s FC in 1878 but changed to Everton (after a district in Liverpool) after just two years. It was initially brought about by the St. Domingo Church Sunday School and was one of the twelve founding members of the Football League.

However, between 2007 and 2014, Everton placed itself in the top half of the league each season.
Location: Goodison Rd, Liverpool L4 4EL, UK
Goodison Park has been host to more top-flight games than any other stadium in England and has also been the venue for many international fixtures and a FA Cup Final. It has been the home of Everton since 1892, and the current structure was built in stages from 1969-1971.
Fulham FC is recognized as London’s oldest professional football club. It was founded in 1879 under the name St. Andrews Cricket and Football Club.

Location: Stevenage Rd, London SW6 6HH, UK
Craven Cottage has been the home ground for Fulham FC since 1896 (apart from a two-year stint of redevelopments that completed in 2004). Before becoming the home of London’s oldest professional football club, the grounds were a royal hunting lodge. Over the years, the stadium has been used by Ireland, Australia, the United States, and Canada men’s national football teams.
Formed in 1919 as a successor to Leeds City after it was forcibly disbanded, the Leeds United Football Club has one of the highest average attendance rates in England. Over time, the club has developed several rivalries and a problematic off-the-field reputation, making it the most hated club in the country.

Leicester City was founded in 1884 as Leicester Fosse. The club switched to five different grounds before settling on King Power Stadium — its home for over a hundred years. The club became a member of the Football League in 1894 and earned a promotion to the First Division in 1908 — where they lost 12-0 to Nottingham Forest. This began a long-standing rivalry with Nottingham Forest which continues today.

Liverpool was established in 1892 and became a member of the Football League in 1893. This club is the most internationally successful British football club and one of the most popular football teams in the world. However, the club’s glowing success and history will forever be accompanied by two of the worst stadium disasters in history (Heysel in 1985 and Hillsborough in 1989).
Location: Anfield Rd, Anfield, Liverpool L4 0TH, UK
Anfield is the seventh-largest stadium in England and was originally home to Everton (1884-1891) before they relocated to Goodison Park. The Anfield Road Stand is still being redeveloped to increase capacity to around 61,000, and it is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2023-2024 season.
Formed in 1880 as St. Mark’s, the club took the name Manchester City in 1894. The club has seen many highs over the years and stands as one of the most successful English football clubs in history. But it has not been all high points, there are plenty of lows to level the playing field! They remain today as the only English championships to get relegated the next season.
Location: Ashton New Rd, Manchester M11 3FF, UK
Manchester City Stadium, also known as Etihad Stadium, was originally built to host the 2002 Commonwealth Games. It was then converted into a 48,000-seat football stadium and has been upgraded since then to have a current capacity of over 53,000.
Nicknamed “The Red Devils,” Manchester United have had a record of consistent success and a brilliant history. This club is England’s other most successful team, boasting more national titles than Liverpool (while Liverpool has more international titles). The club was founded in 1878 and renamed Manchester United in 1902.
Location: Sir Matt Busby Way, Old Trafford, Stretford, Manchester M16 0RA, UK
Old Trafford is the largest club football stadium in the United Kingdom and the eleventh-largest in Europe. It has been United’s home since 1910, though from 1941-1949, the club shared a Stadium with Manchester City due to bomb damage from the Second World War. The stadium is still not yet back up to its 80,000 capacity, but future expansion is likely.
Newcastle United is the result of a merger between two older Tyneside clubs (Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End) and was admitted to the Football League in 1894.

St. James' Park
Location: Barrack Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4ST, UK

Nottingham Forest was founded in 1865 and is one of only five English clubs to have ever won the European Cup/UEFA Championship League — one in four to win more than once and only one in two to win two in a row. The team has returned to the Premier League after its most recent relegation in 1999 after winning the 2022 Championship play-off final.
Location: City Ground, Nottingham, NG2 5FJ
City Ground Stadium has been the home of Nottingham Forest FC since 1898. It also hosted UEFA Euro 1996.

St. Mary's Stadium
Location: Britannia Road, Southampton, SO14 5SP, England
This stadium has been home to Southampton FC since 2001. It is currently the largest stadium in South East England. As Southampton was founded by members of St. Mary’s Church, the move to the stadium is typically marked as a return home.
Founded in 1882 by a group of grammar-school boys from All Hallows Church, the club was initially named Hotspur. This was altered to Tottenham Hotspur to avoid confusion with an older club named Hotspur FC. The club was admitted into the Football League in 1908 and made history as the first British team to win a European trophy in 1962.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Location: 782 High Rd, London N17 0BX, UK
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the third-largest stadium in England as the largest club ground in London. It was designed as a multi-purpose stadium and featured the first dividing, retractable football pitch in the world. The stadium has yet to be claimed by a sponsor, so the temporary name “Tottenham Hotspur Stadium” has stuck around.
West Ham United
West Ham United began as Thames Ironworks FC in 1885. It was founded by Arnold Hills — director of the Thames Ironworks shipyard department — to improve the relationship between management and workers. This history is still evident in the club’s crest, which features a pair of crossed rivet hammers.
Location: London E20 2ST, UK
