Liverpool is England’s top footballing city ahead of London and Manchester

Date Posted,March 29, 2017

Liverpool is England’s top footballing city, historically speaking at least.

An impressive 274 major titles have been won by teams from England’s three most successful cities – London, Liverpool and Manchester.

London based clubs have won 108 of those honours which are comprised of 20 league titles 31 FA Cups, 12 League Cups, 26 Community Shields, one Champions League, nine Europa Leagues/Cup Winners Cups/UEFA Cups/Fairs Cups, one European Super Cup and no intercontinental cups.

Liverpool’s two clubs have won 83 such honours and Manchester’s two clubs have also won 83.

The capital has far more teams than both Liverpool and Manchester though so the city’s titles average out to 6.4 per club as opposed to 41.5 per club for Liverpool and Manchester.

When weighting the titles by prestige, though, it’s Liverpool who come out on top.

Manchester’s titles are worth 400 points, Liverpool’s 421 points and London’s 533 points when awarding 10 points for a European Cup/Champions League, eight for a Premier League/First Division, six for an FA Cup, six for a Europa League/UEFA Cup/Cup Winners Cup, four for a League Cup and one for a one off such as the Community Shield.

Per club though it works out at 210.5 for Liverpool, 200 for Manchester and just 31.4 for London.
