The geography of London football
The top 20 London clubs in 2022–23
The eleventh 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 2022–23 season.
The weight of the type and the density of the map’s 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 just two changes from the 2021–22 season:
- After spending a single season back in the Championship, Fulham have again returned to the Premier League. Seven out of the 20 top-flight clubs are now London-based.
- AFC Wimbledon were relegated to League Two – marking the first reversal in the club’s remarkable rise through the ranks since its reincarnation in 2002.
