Groundhopping links

I've quickly found out, during my first few months of groundhopping, that there are lots of resources around to help. There are lots of great books and podcasts available for those long train journeys, and websites to help you plan and record your visits.

The lists below are the best I've discovered on my adventure so far.


Football Ground Guide - this site has quickly become my bible for league grounds. It's a great resource for all the key information for every league club and a few non-league ones too. - a great site for recording your league ground visits. It provides league tables for all the major groundhopping categories and lots of reviews

Doing the 92 - another great site for recording your '92' visits. All games are recorded on the system, so you only have to enter the date and team, and all your key info will be recorded.

Non League matters - a great resource for non-league fans. Lists all of the tables and fixtures around the country, sorted by step

The Rainham End - a great selection of grounds featured on this groundhopping blog from a regular at Gillingham


Totally Football Show - a really enjoyable bi-weekly summary of the latest goings on in the football world

Totally Football League Show - an off-shoot of the totally show, this pod features updates from the Championship to League Two and profiles the in-form teams and the best places to visit

Not the Top 20 Pod - the experts on what's going on in the Football League and a great mid-week insight into the 72 league clubs outside the Premier League

Non League Show - a useful podcast for anyone interested in non-league football features a wide selection of leagues and clubs
