Yes, teams that can’t be found on a map..

Arsenal correct, Port Vale correct, Is in Burslem, Tranmere is incorrect, that is a place.... Hearts is one also. Maybe others?
Strictly speaking not actually true. Forest Green is a district of Nailsworth and can be found on most maps which go into a little bit of detail. Nailsworth also has another team, Shortwood United which comes from the Shortwood District of the town.

Fair enough, it was a quiz question I recalled, I didn’t check in minute details 👍

Like Grimsby Town, who play in Cleethorpes - a separate town.
Yes, but the question was about teams whose name does not correspond to a place that can be found on a map. Teams that don't currently play in the location in their name is a totally different matter. Many, many teams (possibly a majority of them) have moved stadium over the years, very often to a location that has a different name.

EDIT: Oops, just noticed @Sheffields Finest already made the same point.

The merit of all things lies in their difficulty!
