Pubs near English football clubs – Research shows one has over 3 times more than any of the other 91!
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
20 Mansfield Town
19 Sheffield United
17 Norwich City
16 Port Vale
16 Queens Park Rangers
15 Exeter City
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.
