Championship's best and worst grounds - How Birmingham City rank against Millwall, Watford, Blackburn, Swansea & Plymouth

All 24 Championship stadiums have been ranked based on the opinions from those who have visited them and provided a review.

The Championship has a variety of stadiums in which most teams have hosted Premier League football bar a few.

Birmingham City back in the 2011/12 season were in the UEFA Europa League whilst playing in the Championship as they were relegated after winning the Carabao Cup. Blues didn't get out of the group stages but there were some fun nights both home and away. Leeds United in the early 2000s hosted Champions League football at Elland Road, whilst Cardiff City is the home for the Welsh national team.

St Andrew's was renamed to St Andrew's @ Knighthead Park in a multi-million pound deal. US-based Shelby Companies Limited, a subsidiary of Knighthead Capital Management took over the club last summer and have invested in to the playing squad as well as trying to make ground improvements.

Back in September, Mace was appointed to complete the remedial works of the lower TIlton at Kop Stands after contractor Buckingham Group collapsed in to administration. The two stands have been partially closed since December 2020 because of corrosion and asbestos and that has meant that less fans have been able to attend matches in the home end. Once the works are completed then the ground should be able to host almost 30,000 fans.

Birmingham fans right now know St Andrew's can be better, but how does it rank against the other grounds in English football's second tier? What is the best ground in the Championship and what is the worst?

These kinds of questions are subjective but BirminghamWorld has used Google review ratings to compile a table of Championship stadiums, ranked from the lowest reviews to the best. Anyone with a Google account can cast an opinion on the venues, and whilst most can be genuine, others can be supporters just trying to get one over their rivals. Nevertheless, this is how the ground's are ranked from those who have went to these stadiums.
