It’s been a long three months since we last felt the highs and lows that come with being a footie supporter. But as of 17th June, the Premier League is back! That got us thinking, which tradespeople have missed football the most?
We spoke to hundreds of you around the UK to find out. And we uncovered loads more about tradespeople and the Premier League – check out the results below.
The Fan League
Liverpool had the Premier League in the bag before it was postponed. When it comes to the Rated People Fan League, LFC still tops the table, thanks to their high number of trade supporters. Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea follow hot on their heels in second and joint third place.
Trades splashing the cash
Despite most builders supporting the reputedly penny-pinching Spurs, it seems that they’re the trade that’s willing to spend the most money to be successful! On the other hand, security specialists are the least willing to spend money to get results, even though their most supported team is spendthrifty Liverpool FC.
Manchester United supporters: where are they really from?
It’s a decades-old joke, but are Man U fans all really southerners? We found out that there are actually double the amount of tradespeople who are United fans in Manchester (8%) compared to London (4%).
If clubs were trades
If Rated People did football derbies… we’d have them in Merseyside and Manchester! Which trades would be up against each other? Turns out it’d be painters vs builders and electricians vs gardeners facing each other on the field.
Do you think that there’s more rivalry between teams within your trade, or are you more competitive with other trades?
