3. Newcastle United

Having some of the most dedicated fans in England behind the club, The Magpies have endured a turbulent last few years. But the Toon army are an exceptionally passionate and loyal group of supporters who pile into St James’ Park without fail, and are respected by most rival fans in England.

Newcastle doesn’t have a particularly global fanbase like Arsenal or Manchester United, but the local support they have is passionate and intense. Game after game, season after season, their St. James’ Park stadium is full and noisy and full-blooded, which is far more than can be said for neighbours Sunderland and Middlesbrough. The Geordies keep singing—even after many years without winning a major trophy.

2. 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.

1. Celtic FC

Celtic is one of the most passionate football fan bases in the UK. Celtic Park is renowned for being a pit of noise intimidating enough to throw even the game’s greatest off their game. The Scottish club has plenty of history and part of that is down to the great support they receive from their fans. Celtic’s Catholic origins give the club a pretty well-defined fanbase, which is a major reason why fans are so dedicated to the club.

    Sunderland get 29 thousand in there stadium weekly guranteed, sometimes over 30 thousand and they play in league 1. If thats not the loyalist support in england having been relegated twice off the bounce and being stuck there for 4 seasons in a row then i dont know what is. This list was done 4 months ago so thats pretty shambolic to not have sunderland on the list.
