Pubs near English football clubs – Research shows one has over 3 times more than any of the other 91!

1 year ago

Essential research has been undertaken to find out which English football club has the most pubs on their doorstep.

The research by Pubs Galore found that one club has more than three times as many pubs within a half mile radius, than any other English football club.

In joint second place with 32 pubs each within half a mile, are Wolves and Newport.

However, standing proud in top spot is…Newcastle United.

Yes, there are a massive 108 pubs within half a mile of St James Park.

Any regular NUFC away traveller often faces two problems.

Not only how few pubs you can find near away grounds BUT also how unfriendly they are in many cases, banning away fans.

It is little wonder why Newcastle is such a stand out place for away fans wanting to visit.

I have often wondered just how well our attendances would have stood up if we had moved to an out of town site as John Hall was pushing for in the 90s.

A staggering achievement…

The English football clubs with most pubs within a half mile radius:

108 Newcastle United

32 Newport County

32 Wolverhampton Wanderers

29 Ipswich Town

26 Blackpool

22 Chelsea

21 Arsenal

20 Mansfield Town

19 Sheffield United

18 Everton

17 Brentford

17 Burnley

17 Norwich City

16 Port Vale

16 Queens Park Rangers

15 Exeter City

15 Liverpool

14 Nottingham Forest

14 Swansea City

13 Bristol City

13 Crewe Alexandra

If it was extended to a mile radius, then Sheffield United’s proximity to its city centre boosts its numbers to 134.

However, that is still well behind Newcastle United with 174 pubs within a mile.
