Nottingham One Of The Greatest Sporting Cities In Great Britain 2

With Meadow Lane, The City Ground and Trent Bridge all within walking distance from one another, it’s easy to see why people associate our great city with sport – and it’s something we’re very proud of!

Notts County is the oldest professional football club in the world, founded in 1862, it pre-dates the Football League. Naturally they became founder members in 1888, and they won the FA Cup in 1894.So while they sit lower than their neighbours Forest in league one, we should remember that we probably wouldn't have football as we know it without Notts County.

The City Ground sits proudly across the river, home to Nottingham Forest of course. This is the club that won the European Cup two years running, in 1979 and 1980, under Brian Clough's management. This is one of the most remarkable achievements in British football. Clough started the notion of the managers- rather than the players - as the people who matter in football.

And then you’re greeted by the majestic Trent Bridge Cricket ground. This weekend (06/08/15), will see Nottingham flooded with 70,000 cricket fans coming to catch the likes of Stuart Broad, Steve Finn and Ben Stokes take to the crease and bowl for their lives in the 2015 Ashes series.

There’s no denying that sport is a massive part of Nottingham’s culture and society. Not only does it have positive impact on the number of people that visit this fantastic city, it has a great effect on the whole atmosphere of the city. This weekend, as is the case whenever there is a sporting event, the bars will be buzzing with people enjoying the sporting atmosphere, which greats a wonderful environment for everyone to enjoy!
