There is a lot to see for those interested in football in London. Just to clarify for non-UK readers of this article, football means the 'beautiful game', which is commonly referred to as football throughout the world.

London has a proud tradition of famous football teams with a lot of competition between them to be the best club. In general, there are four or five London teams in the Premier League and there are many commentators who believe that this is one of the biggest obstacles to any of them winning the league. A 'local derby' between two London football teams could produce an electric atmosphere and turn around the current form they are so well contested.

Tickets to the Premier League are sometimes hard to come by, but a little perseverance often pays off. There are a number of ticket agencies that can get you tickets for a fee.

In the last decade, both Arsenal and Chelsea have twice won the illustrious Premier League title and reached the final of the European Cup.

Here are some details on the 10 best football clubs in London and to avoid any accusations of partisanship they are listed in alphabetical order: -

Arsenal

The Arsenal Gunners have played in the top division of English football in consecutive seasons since the 1919-20 season. They have been champions 13 times and achieved a unique record for modern times in the 2003-04 season when they went the entire season without being defeated.

Arsenal have won the coveted 'double' (league and cup champions in the same season) three times, in 1971, 1998 and 2002

In recent years they have moved to a new venue, the Emirates Stadium, with a capacity for 60,000 people. The Arsenal Museum is well worth a visit and is open every day.

Brentford

The Bees, Brentford Football Club currently play in Football League I. They were founded in 1889 and play their home games at Griffin Park, their home stadium since 1904. Brentford's most successful spell occurred during the 1930s, when they managed to consecutively the first six places in the First Division.

Since the war, they have spent most of their time in the third and fourth levels of English football. Brentford has been a four-time FA Cup quarter-finalist and a two-time runner-up for the Football League Trophy.

Charlton athletic

The Addicks, Charlton Athletic have seen better days. There were happy days in the thirties and forties. In recent years they have struggled after being relegated from the Premier League in 2005 and then from the Championship in 2008.

They play The Valley, south of the River Thames in Greenwich. The club was founded in 1905.

Historically, Charlton's most successful period was the 1930s, when the club's best league results were recorded, including the league runners-up in 1937, and after World War II, when the club reached the final of the FA Cup twice, winning in 1947. https://xn--168-jml4a7dtc8e.com/%e0%b8%9b%e0%b8%a3%e0%b8%b0%e0%b8%a7%e0%...
