Best Rivalries in Pro Sports

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Sydney FC - Melbourne Victory
42Blackburn Rovers FC - Burnley FC

With less than 8 miles separating both towns this is Englands most oldest and fiercest rivalry going all the way back into the 19th century. The intensity is added to in that they have not played each other too often in recent times. When they play each other they have to have coaches escorted by police for supporters of the visiting team to make sure they arrived at the opposition stadium without a riot ensuing. Supporters are unable to travel to the opposition stadium any other way. The last time they met at Turf Moor 150 seats were ripped up and the away end toilets left obliterated leading to 42 arrests. - Roverholic

Been to 5 of these games in my life and they create one of the most hostile atmosphere's of any rivalry. It's the oldest and most fierciest rivalry in English football dating back to the 19th century. Any time I've been as an away supporter you are only allowed to go on the coaches in a police escort to try and minimise any crowd trouble. The rivalry goes further than just sporting and there is genuine hate between the two towns.
