There are few things that Londoners are as passionate about as football (soccer) and with 13 professional football clubs in the capital region, there are plenty of opportunities for visitors to experience the legendary game. Two of London’s top Premier League teams are Chelsea FC, based at West London’s Stamford Bridge Stadium, and West Ham United, currently based at East London’s Upton Park (Boleyn Ground) football stadium, and both clubs offer stadium tours for fans.

The best way to experience London’s football fever is of course, to watch a live game and home matches are held biweekly at both stadiums during the football season (September- May) – just be sure to pre-book your tickets as the most popular games (like Chelsea against long-standing rivals Arsenal) almost always sell out. With some of England’s best players running the pitch, Premier League fixtures guarantee some world class football, so you can get into the spirit by dressing up in the team colours and singing along with the crowds to anthems like Chelsea’s “Blue Is The Colour” or West Ham’s “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles.”
