Ranked: The 15 Best Stadiums in the EFL

Publishedon

There are some fantastic stadiums right through the Football League, with some of the grounds even putting Premier League homes to shame.

Whether it is a modern new-build stadium or somewhere that has been developed over the years, nearly every one is unique in its own way.

Of course, not many have the capacity of Old Trafford, The Emirates or London Stadium, but plenty are streets ahead of AFC Bournemouth’s Dean Court.

Whilst the atmosphere inside a ground often gets people debating whose home is the best, we’ve taken a slightly different approach, looking at the aesthetics of a stadium, whilst considering some of the noise that’s created from the four stands.

Somewhere like Elland Road might have the best atmosphere, does it make first place in this competition? Or is a new-build stadium – like at MK Dons – ahead of Championship clubs?

Here, we rank what we believe are the 15 best stadiums in the EFL…

15) Pride Park – Derby County

Pride Park is a modern stadium, with Derby County moving into their current home in 1997 after parting ways with the famous Baseball Ground.

With a capacity of well over 30,000, the Rams fans can pack into Pride Park and create plenty of noise in a modern stadium, which is sometimes hard to do.

That mix of atmosphere and how eye-catching Pride Park is, gets it into our top 15.

14) Riverside Stadium – Middlesbrough

Like Derby, Middlesbrough moved into the Riverside in the mid-90s, as they looked to compete with Newcastle and Sunderland to become the North-East’s powerhouse.

All three stadiums up there are unique in their own way, but Middlesbrough’s is perhaps the one lacking, with St James’ Park and the Stadium of Light both magnificent builds.

Nevertheless, it is one of the best in the EFL and is deserving of a place in this top-15, coming in at number 14.
