Major trophy wins by region

0

London was the dominant region in football until the advent of professionalism.
The North and the Midlands then dominated the game.
After Blackburn Olympic's triumph in 1883 no southern team would win the  FA Cup  until 1901.
It was 54 years before a southern team won the First Division championship.
For the purpose of this post I have divided England into 5 broad areas:

The South
Lancashire
North East
Yorkshire
Midlands

And the period under consideration, from the introduction of competitive football in 1872 up until 1937, I have divided into the pre Football League era and the Football League era.

Pre Football League era 1872-1888
FA Cup winners:
The South- 11*
Lancashire-  4
Midlands-  2

* From 1872-1883 the FA Cup was won exclusively by southern teams. 

The Football League Era 1888-1937
FA Cup Winners:
Lancashire- 15
Yorkshire -10
Midlands-10
North East -4**
The South -4
Wales -1

Football League Champions:
Lancashire-16
North East -9**
Yorkshire-8
Midlands- 7
The South -4*

*Exclusively Arsenal- it was 54 years before a southern team won the First Division championship
** Although the North east is traditionally a football heartland, only Newcastle United and Sunderland have won major honours.
