Situated on the banks of the River Trent, The City Ground has been home to Nottingham Forest Football Club since 1898 and has a capacity of 30,445.

The success that they have enjoyed over the years has pretty much all been achieved at The City Ground.
4. Villa Park
Villa Park has been the home of Aston Villa Football Club since 1897. They say once you visit Villa Park, you want to go there again and again.

The stadium has been renovated many a time by the management to create an emphatic atmosphere and surroundings.
With a capacity of 61,000 spectators, Anfield is always a step ahead of all the other stadiums in terms of crowd and noise.

Sir Alex Ferguson once called it “the most intimidating venue in Europe”. Despite abortive plans to move out in 2001, the club remains at the ground where it won the league in 1969, 1974, and 1992. What’s most important about Elland Road, though, is the place it retains in the life of the city, and the hearts of the locals.
