Sport

Sport, especially football, has a huge significance in Liverpool, as home to two of the Premiership’s biggest teams Liverpool and Everton, football not only stirs the passions of locals, but also attracts a great many visitors to watch the teams play or visit their famous stadiums.

Liverpool are one of the most successful clubs in Britain, while Everton are amongst the oldest clubs in Britain and were one of the founders of the football league in 1888.
The Liverpool City region is the location of England’s Golf Coast consisting of three Royal Links courses and many other naturally beautiful courses up and down the coast, together they make once of the most impressive stretches of championship golf in the world.

Royal Liverpool, located on the Wirral, is the second oldest links course in England will play host to its 12th Open Championship in 2014.

Another major sporting event for the region is the Crabbie’s Grand National, which takes place at Aintree every April. This steeplechase has been taking place at Aintree since 1839 and has become a British Institution, and is watched by a global TV audience of 600 milion. Nothing beats the atmosphere of the event itself, and Ladies Day has become a highlight of the Liverpool Social calendar.
