I think Old Trafford has the biggest or it did it might not be now. Dunno the smallest though.

Old Trafford is the biggest pitch, with our pitch just behind in 2nd (as far as I know).

The smallest is apparently St.James' Park.

I'm pretty sure that's not true. People just assumed that because the pitch was very close to the stands.

In fact, Ashburton Grove is only a couple of metres longer and one metre wider!

i always thought highbury had the smallest pitch. i

I thought it was because when arsenal matches were showed, they used a lower camera angle which made it appear smaller. but as a couple people have said, they did have the smallest pitch

I'm not 100% sure which is biggest or smallest really. Everywhere I look I get different measurements and according to my latest source, Ashburton Grove has the same pitch size as St.James' Park, yet St.James' is supposedly the smallest now?

Highbury doesn't exist anymore unfortunately. :(

I though that too. But I knew that the pitch wasn't that small as the camera was showing.

Also all the picthes that are used for UEFa competition must have a standard size anyway so most of them must be the same.
