Best Cities in England for a Soccer Vacation


Top teams: Manchester United and Manchester City

Surely the first candidate you should consider for your UK soccer tour is Manchester, which is a vibrant city in the north of the UK. It is home to two iconic soccer clubs: Manchester City and Manchester United, which are bitter rivals, making a match between the two cities in Manchester a lively experience!To date, Manchester United Football Club, who are based at the Old Trafford Stadium, have won 20 League Titles, 12 FA Cups, four League Cups and 21 FA Community Shields, which is a staggering achievement. Games featuring Manchester United are always a thrilling experience and we highly recommend reserving tickets to a local match as a part of your UK soccer tour – but be sure to book far in advance as matches often sell out.Meanwhile, Manchester City, who call the City of Manchester Stadium their home, was founded in 1880, but only became known as Manchester City Football Club in 1894. Since 2011, the club has won six major titles, including the Premier League in 2012 and 2014.As a part of your soccer-themed vacation to Manchester, you could also take a day trip to the city of Leicester, which is home to the Leicester City Football Club, who famously won the Premier League in 2015/16. The win won the hearts of the nation as they were deemed “underdogs”, having never won the league before in their 132-year history.As well as soccer, Manchester has much more to offer, including unique shopping opportunities at The Trafford Centre, which is a popular mall, as well as cultural activities at the Imperial War Museum North and Manchester Art Gallery.
