  • Stamford Bridge is the oldest stadium in the Premier League.
  • Nine EPL stadiums were opened in the late 1800s.

While the Premier League itself is fairly young, founded in 1992, its origins are centuries old. The EPL was originally part of the Football League First Division, the top soccer division in the UK, which was founded in 1888.

Some clubs are still playing in the stadiums that were built during the 18th century, while other clubs have moved to new homes or built upgraded versions. Of course, homefield advantage makes a big difference in Premier League betting. The soccer odds in EPL betting will often reflect this.

Clubs like Tottenham Hotspurs and West Ham have moved to bigger stadiums to increase the number of supporters that can come and watch home games. However, some clubs still play in their original stadiums, and while supporter numbers might be the most important factor for many modern teams, others favor history and tradition.
