Local derbies in the United Kingdom

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the main sporting local derbies in the United Kingdom.

Football derby matches in the United Kingdom are often heated affairs, and violence is not uncommon.[1][2] However, the matches and the rivalries they encompass are frequently listed among the best in the sport.[3][4][5] A 2008 report based on fan surveys listed West Bromwich Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers (who contest the Black Country Derby) as having the number one rivalry in English football,[6] while Old Firm derby matches between Scottish clubs Rangers and Celtic are known to go beyond the sport with its "enormous quantity of references to wider cultural and political issues".[7] The first football derby played was between Hallam F.C. and Sheffield F.C. in December 1860.[8]
