The geography of London football

The top 20 London clubs in 2019–20

Hidden London: map of London football clubs' grounds for the 2019-20 season

The eighth edition of Hidden London’s football map shows the ground locations for all the London clubs in the top six tiers of the English game for the 2019–20 season. The weight of the type and the density of the yellow circles indicate hierarchical status, from the Premier League clubs to those in the National League South (formerly Conference South). The map also shows the location of Wembley Stadium – the home of cup finals and England games.

The map reflects the following changes from the 2018–19 season:

  • Fulham have been relegated to the Championship after spending a single season in the top flight this time round.
  • Charlton Athletic were promoted to the Championship after beating Sunderland with an injury time goal in the League One play-off final.
  • Leyton Orient have returned to the Football League after winning the National League.

Future devel­op­ments

Work continues on the construction of a new stadium for Brentford FC, one kilometre east of the club’s present home at Griffin Park. The club is due to move into the Brentford Community Stadium at the end of the 2019-20 season.

AFC Wimbledon had previ­ously hoped to move into their new home at their historic address – Plough Lane – in time for the start of the 2019–20 season. However, not enough money has yet been found to get this project off the drawing board. A crowd­funding initi­ative has been launched.


These are the 20 London clubs mapped above, listed alpha­bet­ically within each division:
