The Closest Football Stadiums in the UK (Part 2)

Yesterday I started the first part of the closest stadiums in the UK. Check it out here.

Well they get even closer believe it or not! We've explored the distances between Sheffield United and Wednesday, Hibs and Hearts, fierce rivals Birmingham and Villa as well as Chelsea and Fulham.

Let's take a look at the final three below.

3. Goodison Park - Anfield (0.59mi)

The Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton is one of the biggest rivalries in the world of football. Everton's Goodison Park and Liverpool's Anfield are among the closest football stadiums in the UK, at opposing ends of Stanley Park and separated by only 0.59 miles.

Everton had originally played at Anfield in 1879 before moving to Goodison Park in 1892, the same year rivals Liverpool were founded. Goodison Park became the first major football stadium in England. Everton are set to move to a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock in 2024.

2. City Ground - Meadow Lane (0.17mi)

A pair of the worlds closest football stadiums and the closest in Engand is Nottingham Forests' City Ground and Notts County's Meadow Lane.

The stadiums are separated only by the River Trent and are 299 yards apart. Parts of the City Ground can even be seen from Meadow Lane's Spion Kop and Jimmy Sirrel stand.

Despite how close the clubs are the rivalry between the Dundee teams is a rather friendly one. Many families are divided on their loyalties and supporters from both sides are united against the big clubs from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

This is Dundee United ... and that is Dundee FC! Can you imagine Bramall Lane and Hillsborough this close? @SufcLive #sufc #twitterblades

😲 How interesting, I had no idea how close these stadiums are.


I think it is always nice to see a "friendly" rivalry. Nothing where people are getting into cruel fights but nice banter and maybe even helpful events to help each other out.

Very cool and informative article series, yet again :)
