Manchester City fans have had their say on the best and worst stadiums in English football.
Fans were asked to choose the pitches they liked and disliked the most, other than their own. The homes of all 92 Football League clubs have been included, along with Wembley Stadium.
The Etihad are not in the top three of either overall list after 7,500 votes, which were cast by supporters across England. But City fans have made it clear which ground is their favorite and which ground they hate the most. Here are the results of the survey of City supporters.

1 – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (36.5%)
Opened in April 2019, the ground has been praised for its modern approach to the fan-centric experience. The stadium isn’t the biggest in the country at just over 60,000, but it was considered the best by City fans despite their opening day defeat in August.
2 – Wembley Stadium (14.9%)
City fans will always have a sour taste in their mouths after their 3-2 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Liverpool at Wembley last month. But they have had FA Cup and League Cup success there over the years, making them a popular choice.
3 – Emirates Stadium (10.2%)
Arsenal were seen as the first club to venture into the ‘modern mega stadium’ turn. Tottenham’s capacity now exceeds Arsenal’s, but it’s still a good ground.
The worst stadiums
1 – Old Trafford (35%)
Unsurprisingly, Old Trafford received the lion’s share of votes when it came to choosing the worst ground in England. Old Trafford is ready for upgrades, but City fans are apparently less than impressed with its current state.
2 – Anfield (19.8%)
Title challengers Liverpool see their home ground come second. The historic location is slated for further expansion, but the current sense of proximity may not be to some fans’ liking.
3 – Goodison Park (6.5%)
Everton’s ground completes the top three. The old-fashioned stadium has been a pleasant place to visit for City in recent years, but many argue that improvements are needed.
Overall, fans across England voted the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the best ground in the country with 22.4% of the vote. Wembley comes second (16.2%) while Anfield is third with 11.3% of the share.
In a repeat of City’s three worst stadiums, Old Trafford was voted the worst ground with 12.5% of fans across the country deeming it mediocre. Anfield is also on the list (9.7%) with Goodison Park third (6.9%).
The Etihad got 6.9% of the votes for the best stadium and 5% for the worst.
