Football

 

Liverpool is sports mad, but most of all, it's football mad! Liverpool is home to two of the premiership’s biggest football teams - Liverpool Football Club and Everton Football Club.



Both teams divide the city between supporters of ‘The Reds’ (Liverpool FC) and ‘The Blues’(Everton FC), and this often leads to animated debate in some of Liverpool’s pubs.



Another football team making a name for itself is Tranmere Rovers FC, from the Wirral Peninsula. Playing in the League One Football League at their Prenton Park stadium in Birkenhead, The Rovers’ loyal fans include celebrities such as Elvis Costello and Half Man Half Biscuit.
