List of sports rivalries in the United Kingdom

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the main sporting local derbies and other sports rivalries 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 Burnley and Blackburn Rovers 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]
