boavista are from porto tiger tiger. not sure how big that derby is in the big picture of european football though..

talking of big european derby games how could we forget celtic and rangers? i stand to be corrected but  i am sure they are not named after geographical locations... yes they are mentioned as glasgow celtic and glasgow rangers but i am sure club share certificates do not mention glasgow  and when european draws are made they are known as celtic and rangers.

I agree with you there conductor, Celtic are 'The Celtic Football Club'and Gers are  simply 'Rangers Football Club'

Queens Park Rangers were founded in 1886 after the merger of Christchurch Rangers and St. Judes Institute. In the early years after the club's formation in its original home of Queen's Park, London, they played their home games at many different grounds, until finally the club settled into its current location at Loftus Road.[2]

I agree that's where it is now but the op question is teams that are not named after a geographical location, qpr is named after a geographical place which is Queens Park

The club was formed in 1886, when a team known as St Jude's (formed in 1882) merged with Christchurch Rangers (formed in 1884).[3] The resulting team was called Queen's Park Rangers, because most of the players came from the Queen's Park area of north-west London. QPR became a professional team in 1889, and played their home games in nearly 20 different stadia (a league record), before permanently settling at Loftus Road in 1917, although the team would briefly attempt to attract larger crowds by playing at the White City Stadium for two short spells: 1931 to 1933, and the 1962–63 season.[4]



Same with Arsenal they are no where near their original location but their original location is where they got their team name from.
