BRADFORD City has finished in the bottom four places of a house price Premier League table.

To mark 25 years since the formation of the Premier League, Halifax looked at the house prices of properties near the grounds of the 49 football clubs that have played in the top flight since 1992.

Halifax analysed how property values in these areas have changed over the last 20 years.

The Bantams finished fourth-from-bottom in the table, recording a 155 per cent rise for an average house price of £93,174.

Blackpool were bottom with just a 124 per cent increase, to £88,668. Middlesbrough recorded a 135 per cent increase for an average of £69,630 and Newcastle were third-from-bottom with a rise of 146 per cent, for an average of £148,775.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur finished top of the table.

Since 1997, the average home value in the postal district surrounding Tottenham's stadium has soared by 655 per cent, from £59,638 in 1997 to £450,104 this year.

West Ham United were runners up with house price growth of 611 per cent, while Charlton Athletic, with growth of 583 per cent, had the highest house price growth for a club no longer in the top flight.

The average house price for all 49 past and present Premier League football clubs has risen by 326 per cent.

Last year's Premier League champions Chelsea jointly take the title for the most expensive area to live, alongside Fulham, with an average house

price of £1.1 million in the surrounding area.

Halifax housing economist Martin Ellis said: "As we welcome the 26th Premier League season, it appears that success on the field has rubbed

off on property prices in the areas surrounding the grounds of many of the nation's top-flight clubs.

"In the last 20 years, average house prices immediately outside some of the country's top clubs have seen rises that far outstrip the country as

a whole, with some areas also benefitting from the associated infrastructure improvements that come with clubs moving to new stadiums."
