Study: The most relegated regions in the Football Leagues
Relegation happens every season, no matter what. Some clubs are used to the relegation scraps whereas others aren’t, nevertheless, you’ve got to feel for any club that makes the drop at the end of the season. With Everton being involved in a rare relegation fight this season, it got us thinking, which region in the football leagues gets relegated the most?
We’ve taken a look at the relegated teams every season since the start of the Premier League (92/93) to work out which regions in England and Wales are getting relegated the most. The regions we have categorised them all into are, North West, East Midlands, West Midlands, Yorkshire, East, London, South West, South East, and Wales..
We’ve found the most relegated region is in fact North West with 61 teams facing the drop since 92/93 and Yorkshire are just behind them with 59 teams going down.
The North West is huge when it comes to football so it’s not much of a surprise to see them at the top of the list. With the likes of Manchester City and Stockport County facing the drop five times since 1992, the North West has got a number of teams that were constantly going down and coming back up. Yorkshire has seen its fair share of relegations with both Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday facing the drop 10 times between them and teams like Grimsby being relegated eight times alone.
