15,000 football grounds now available to choose from

footballgroundmap.com reaches 15,000 grounds milestone

Wednesday 27th March 2019

This month we've hit the amazing milestone of 15,000 football grounds on the website.

Sportpark Zwaluwen

The 15,000th was Sportpark Zwaluwen, home of VV Zwaluwen a Dutch team playing in the 5th tier of the pyramid in the Netherlands. Based just west of Rotterdam, the stadium holds 2,750 fans and has already been ticked off by one keen groundhopper!

Recently, the site has seen a surge in the number of grounds in our database. It took almost 10 years to reach 6,000 but in the summer of 2017 several amazing people on Twitter volunteered to help and have added an incredible 10,000 new grounds to the website in 18 months.

When I originally started the site back in 2007, I had no idea that it would become as popular as it has. We still get daily requests for new stadiums to be added and it's great to see so many grounds from all over the world.

As well as 15,000 grounds, were also closing in on our 150,000th registered user.

But we're not done - we still want more football stadiums adding. So if there's a stadium you've been to which we don't have listed, please contact me and we'll get it added for you.
