The North West of England has always been a pretty special place to watch sport. It’s home to some of the most famous sportsmen and women that this country has produced. But if you want to experience the sport from the view of the people then you simply have to head down to one of the sports bars in Wirral to catch a game. This part of the world has a particularly strong presence in the world of rugby with no fewer than nine clubs operating in an area with a population of less than 350,000 people. The biggest football club by miles is Tranmere Rovers. Although just across the River Mersey, the football clubs enjoy worldwide acclaim and recognition, Rovers have been languishing in the depths of the EFL for some years now. But you could always have a nose at our list of the best pubs showing Liverpool matches.
There is no shortage of sports bars on the Wirral. That’s lucky because the locals would likely go mad if they couldn’t watch all the sport available to them in these fine old drinking establishments. Wirral is especially famous for the links golf course at Hoylake – AKA Royal Liverpool which has hosted the prestigious Open Championship well over 10 times. Whilst golf might not be the first sport that comes to mind when you mention the pub, it is taken rather seriously here and if the time of year is right, it’s definitely worth catching a round in one of the many top-notch pubs in Wirral.
