As editor of this football travel blog I am keen to follow as many likeminded people as possible. Here is a list of great European football travel blogs that are well worth a follow.
If you have any recommendations, please add them in the comments box. I am sure I am missing plenty.
It’s nice to remember that there’s life outside the Premier League. If you like your long-form prose and are happy to delve down to the ninth tier of English football, then Two Men in Search of the Beautiful Game is the right blog for you.
Talking of non-league, it’s worth following the chronicles of The Onion Bag.
The range of stadia across the country, from the massive open bowl of the Nou Camp right down to the humble three-sided shoehorn of Rayo Vallecano’s Campo de Fútbol de Vallecas are a big part of the Spanish football experience.
Luckily, one man is chronicling the stadiums of Spain. Chris Clements is editor of Estadios de España (Stadiums of Spain). For groundhopping geeks this blog is absolute gold.
To follow all the La Liga action, be sure to tune into Phil Kitromilides and Sid Lowe on The Spanish Football Podcast.
Many visitors to this blog will have experienced German football for themselves. It’s so varied, always buzzing and great value for money.
One blog well worth a follow is From Boothferry to Germany, written by an expat Hull City fan living in Berlin. The contributors don’t just stick to Germany, they also explore further afield into Eastern Europe.
Check out our podcast interview with From Boothferry to Germany.
Always high quality, deep content, The Gentleman Ultra’s contributors shed light on the most fascinating angles of Italian football history and culture.
Listen to our podcast with Gentleman Ultra contributor Luca Hodges-Ramon on the history of the Italian ultra movement.
For analysis of the Portuguese game in English, follow Tom Kundert’s Portugoal.
I fell in love with French football in the 1980s, with the glamorous Platini era side, followed in the early 90s by that Marseille team of Waddle, Cantona, Papin, Blanc etc.
Then France got too good and I fell out of love with the football, but it’s still my favourite country.
And if you want to follow the French game, French Football Weekly is a great place to start.
We talk about France in the February 2017 Football Travel Podcast, so subscribe on iTunes.
Run Google translate over Danish blog VisitFootball and you’ll get various guides to football grounds across Europe. We spoke to editor Claus Bermann about the feisty Copenhagen Derby in our first podcast.
For those who want to watch football all year round, while most of Europe is on its summer break, Finland’s Veikkausliga kicks off. Check out FC Suomi and Escape to Suomi for more. “Suomi” = “Finland” in Finnish.
