Mobility Data: Battle of Birmingham

Birmingham and the Black Country was a highly requested area for us to look at next, and we couldn't resist. This time we've looked at: Aston Villa, Birmingham City, West Brom and Wolves and the results certainly are interesting...

7th May 2021

Our much-anticipated second instalment of the Football Maps series has been delayed by needing to do some actual, proper work – but Alessandro and Dan have been burning the midnight oil, so here we go…

Having previously looked at London, and which boroughs supporters around the grounds on matchdays come from, we were able to show that Spurs dominate north London.

We’ve now replicated this across Birmingham and the Black Country, and looked at which club are most represented in each postal district. We’ve looked at Aston Villa, Birmingham City, West Brom and Wolves (apologies to Walsall fans for not including you – I’m regretting that already).

West Midlands teams are in the spotlight this time 

It’s a really interesting pattern, with swathes of local dominance for each Club. We’ve got no vested interest in this one – fascinated to hear what you think…any surprises?

Next up is going to be Manchester – we’ve processed it up and it shows the United west / City east divide – but we’re working on an alternative view that is going to be designed to try and upset both sets of supporters in equal measure. Watch this space…
