Premier League Stadiums: As seen from above

Share

Since the start of the Premier League, 52 football stadiums have been used to host matches. In the inaugural round of England’s top tier league matches, eleven stadiums were used in the opening fixtures.

Over the years, the stadiums have undergone many changes. The beginning of the 1994-95 season marked the end of terraces from all stadiums as a consequence of the Hillsborough Disaster. The terraces did return in the 2000-01 season, but only temporarily as Fulham was given some extra time to complete the renovations after promotion from the Championship.

In August 2009, the Turf Moor stadium became the 50th Premier League stadium when Burnley FC hosted Manchester United in their first home fixture in the top tier. The last stadium to become part of this list is Swansea’s Liberty Stadium – the first ever Premier League match was played in August 2011 against Wigan.

Below you’ll see overhead shots of the 20 Premier League stadiums (courtesy of Google Maps and Bing Maps) currently in use in the 2012/2013 season.
