Fans take their seats at the Nou Camp


Arguably the biggest sporting city in the world, Londoners show a real passion for sport and most are very knowledgeable on a wide variety of sports. The capital city is currently home to 6 Premier League clubs and the national football team regularly play at Wembley Stadium, which has a capacity of an impressive 90,000 fans, although the old Wembley was reported to hold (unofficially) 200,000! The city also boasts host to what is undoubtedly the biggest professional Tennis tournament in the world; Wimbledon might be one of four grand slams but it’s still the only tournament to be played on grass and we probably shouldn’t forget to mention the cool £27,000,000 prize money that’s up for grabs.

Rugby is huge in the city and Twickenham played host to the final of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. London club teams include Harlequins and Saracens, with London Irish currently playing in Reading. Running fanatics from all over the world flock to London during April for the London Marathon, which is open to both amateurs and professionals. Finally, you can’t talk about sport in London without mentioning one of the nation’s favourite sport, Cricket, and London is home to two of the finest grounds around, Lords and the Oval.
