Football supporter map of London

Postby norre » Tue Apr 27, 2010 6:13 am

This is an attempt to show London football supporters on a
map. It´s a working progress and with feedback is going to
change a lot. The map shoud show traditionall supporters and
no glory hunters.

Feedback?

I grew up in Kenton, but I think according to that map I grew up in a chelsea area? even though the loft is the nearest ground? Also growing up I rarely saw chelsea fans but know plenty of qpr fans in the area.

looks good although some colours are a bit too similar e.g. Charlton and Orient.

The soccer tribe- socker gang
Is this a map for the sock colours football fans wear to matches?

Actually, seriously, make an app...so you can enter where you live and it'll turn a particular area the colour of the team you support. Also the media could judge the mood of supporters by asking them to enter their mood, etc etc great for wembley, england games, away fans etc etc.

Similar to something I would love to do but as I'm still struggling to work out how to turn on my new HTC phone so I doubt it'll ever happen. So if do make a million out of it send me my 10%...actually make it 15% :wink:

Tricky representation for colour blind people.

Doesn't tally at all with in house supporter data.

I grew up in Fulham and, mainly, Hounslow. In those days, for every one Chelsea fan, there were 4 QPR fans. No mention of Brentford in Hounslow? Shirley some misktake??! Same was true at school (Isleworth and Syon) - low Chelsea fanbase, high QPR (and Brentford).

Huge over estimation of the West Ham fan base too. Most out in Romford are Spurs or Arsenal.

Quite a fair representation of Croydon. It's Palace (excluding chelscum) heaven. I see a random splurge of West Ham near New Addington - growing up there, I can tell you it's a breeding ground of Crystal Palace supporting weirdos.

I think he said it only counts fans who actually go to games.

The Chelsea support in northwest London is from the Desmond Morris map. it's very doubtful.
