The following list of fixtures tries to rank the biggest worldwide club and national team fixtures in our database. The scoring isn't perfect but gives a decent depiction of the world's top upcoming matches. Many of these matches are just big teams pitted against each other with no history of rivalry. Some of these however are `derbies' or matches between rival clubs or nations. Football rivalries come about from many things, the first being geography: local cross-town or regional clubs vying for bragging rights or historical animosity between neighboring nations. Other rivalries begin with animosity amongst fans, on or off-field incidents, media provocations, politics, culture, class, religion and other factors. These matches can be amazing spectacles but aren't meant for the feint of heart or small children.
