The city region boasts three historic football clubs. Everton and Liverpool are separated by just one mile and are two of the Premiership’s finest. Wirral’s Tranmere Rovers play in League One at Prenton Park in Birkenhead.
The region is also home to England’s Golf Coast, the finest stretch of championship golf in the world, with no fewer than three Royal Links courses which have hosted endless Open Championships and Ryder Cups. These include Royal Birkdale in Southport, Royal Liverpool at Hoylake and Wallasey Golf Club, Home of Stableford, in Wirral.
Liverpool is also close to a number of top rugby teams, including St Helens (Saints) - the most successful Rugby League club of the Super League era.
Liverpool Echo Arena hosts large-scale sporting events such as boxing and gymnastics.
We're also the perfect place to try your hand at watersports, with a number of centres across the city region including Liverpool Watersports Centre and Wirral Sailing Centre based at West Kirby Marine Lake, with courses available for all ages and levels of experience. Wirral also hosts the British Open Dinghy Team Raching Championships 'The Wilson Trophy' each year.
