A General Election for the United Kingdom has been announced for July - here’s how 2024/25 Championship club constituencies voted in the last one.

There's a common saying that politics and football shouldn't mix - but this summer you won't be able to get away from the two.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced on Wednesday that a UK General Election would take place on Thursday, July 4. The Conservative Party have been in power since May 2010, and since then there have been three general elections and a total of five different Prime Ministers.

Euro 2024 was meant to be the highlight of the summer. And while politicians are out campaigning, supporters will either be in Germany supporting the Three Lions or in the pubs cheering Gareth Southgate’s men on. The quarter-finals of the Euros are due to take place on Friday, July 5, which is when the results will start coming in. There is a real possibility England - and Scotland - will be playing a knockout match while the UK is deciding its next leader.

Just like the football, we’ll all be keeping a close eye out on the results as the race for No10 gets under way. The Tories secured an 80-seat majority the last time the nation went to the polls. That lead has subsequently been reduced following several costly by-election defeats - and their once handsome advantage could be wiped out competely if the politics pundits are to believed!

But what parties currently boast majorities in the constituencies that Championship grounds are located? We all know Stephen Morgan (Labour) holds the parliamentary seat for the Portsmouth South constituency Fratton Park is located in 2019. But what about Elland Road, the Stadium of Light, Carrow Road? Here’s what we found out.
