World Soccer Talk has researched the biggest football pitches in the Premier League. We ranked them from the largest to the smallest.

While in the past there has been a larger variance in pitch sizes, things have become more consistent in recent years. As more clubs open new grounds, or renovate old ones, the trend has moved towards standardizing the pitch dimensions. The same can be said about pitch sizes among the top teams in Europe.

Here are the top 20 pitches ranked in order of size. The large number after the size of the pitch — square yards — is calculated by multiplying the length and width of the pitch (in yards).

Few small pitches remain

Looking at the stadiums, it’s no surprise that the biggest differences in pitch dimensions come from the older grounds. As of spring 2023, only six of the Premier League’s twenty clubs play on pitches that do not match FIFA’s recommended size of 115 x 74 yards. 

Fulham’s Craven Cottage is by far the smallest pitch of the bunch, a full 401 square yards smaller than the next closest. Goodison Park is bigger, but is still small compared to the standard size most clubs are using (subject to change when their new dockside stadium opens).

Someday the entire Premier League pitches may be more similar when more stadiums are replaced or renovated. That might be good for competitive consistency. But it will be a little sad as a quirky part of the game becomes a thing of the past.
