United Kingdom has some of the biggest and most followed football clubs in the world. Millions of supporters have pledged their loyalty to these clubs. Let us have a look at some of the most passionate football fan bases in UK.
Here are the top 10 most passionate football fan bases in UK –
5. Leeds United
The lilywhites of West Yorkshire are simply one of the most famous clubs in the country. They’ve experienced great success in the past and have a great fanbase.
Leeds is the largest English city with only one professional club and even during tough times their fans still come close to filling the 37,000 seat capacity at Elland Road while screaming, “We are Leeds!” Perhaps it’s the fiery northern mentality that is so deeply engrained into the psyche of every Leeds fan that makes them collectively feel they’re capable of creating an atmosphere that changes score lines. An Elland Road in full voice not only spurs Leeds United on, but it also terrifies the opposition.
There are very few things more stirring in football across the world than hearing Liverpool supporters passionately belt out ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. Not only are Liverpool fans dedicated to their team, but they are also strong believers in enjoying the sport without resorting to violence or hostility.
Games against Manchester United and Everton—whose atmospheres have been described as “suffocating” and “not for the faint of heart”— creates an unmatched atmosphere.
Though starved of success in recent years, Liverpool’s supporters have stood by their team and hope that Jurgen Klopp can bring the glory days back to the red half of Merseyside.
3. West Ham United
West Ham United is all about tradition and the development of youth. Although the club has seen players such as Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick and Joe Cole move on to bigger and better things after spending time in the club’s youth ranks, local Hammers have never become disheartened with the club.
West Ham haven’t had much success recently but they have always had tremendous support from the stands, that’s something they can be proud of. Fans of West Ham are as passionate as they come, and although their games do not provide the same quality of football as some other games in the Premier League, the West Ham fans make up for it with unfaltering enthusiasm, cheering their team on through thick and thin.
