While Premier League football fans will be hoping the sun shines on their club next season, anoraks will be interested in new data that reveals which stadium in England’s top flight sees the most rainfall each year.
Figures released by the Daily Star newspaper show the wettest ground among the country’s elite, and the top area for torrents is perhaps unsurprising.
The Pennines region of the North West is the home of four of the top five in the list, with Burnley’s Turf Moor hit by 1294mm of rainfall each year.
Top-flight new boys Huddersfield Town in West Yorkshire are in second place with 1028mm, while Manchester United and Manchester City are in fourth and fifth place with around 867mm.
Another soggy stadium is Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium, which is third on the list with 999mm.
Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park, in 10th position, is the wettest of London’s stadiums with 821mm. Despite its famously bracing temperatures, Newcastle United’s St James’ Park is the second driest stadium, with just 597mm of rainfall each year.
The stadium that sees the least precipitation is West Ham’s London Stadium with just 557mm per year.
