Errors in Geography
The train pulling into Grimsby Town is the type used by the C2C service, which is the London Fenchurch Street to Southend line, also in South East Essex

Errors in Geography
Nobby goes quite a distance to buy his mattress at the beginning of the film, as the bus he gets on goes via Grays, and that particular service and route is in South East Essex.
Rhonda George is the actual name of Mr Cohen's personal assistant. Penelope Cruz plays a fictional character in the film called Rhonda Georg

Some of the scenes from Grimsby were actually filmed in Tilbury, Essex

Sacha Baron Cohen plays the part of the older brother of Mark Strong's character but is in fact 8 years younger than him

The referee in the final football match of the tournament is an actual professional referee, Jabulani Mahono, who officiates in the South African Premier Soccer League and National First Division matches

On February 13, 2014, the film moved from Paramount Pictures to Columbia Pictures and it was announced that the film would be released on July 31, 2015. On January 21, 2015, the film's release date was moved back to February 26, 2016. The film will now be released on March 4, 2016

Sacha Baron Cohen's character's look (most particularly the hair and sideburns) is heavily reflective of that of Liam Gallagher, frontman of world famous rock band Oasis, of the 90's - 00's

The stadium in "Santiago" is actually the Cape Town Stadium, where the FIFA World Cup semi-final between Netherlands and Uruguay took place in 2010

Many of the scenes that are set in Santiago, Chile were actually filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.

Once this film was announced, the mayor of Grimsby produced a promotional film showing that Grimsby was in fact a nice place to live, and not as depicted in Cohen's movie

None of the shots in Grimsby were actually shot in the town, they were all shot in Essex. Cohen never asked to shoot in the town

A number of residents of Grimsby were angry with Cohen portraying their town as a rubbish-strewn, violent ghetto in which drunks urinate from windows and mothers hand children cans of beer in the street

Cohen calls Scott Adkins' character 'Ukrainian Ben Affleck'. Scott Adkins actually auditioned for the role of Batman in 'Batman v Superman', a role that ultimately went to Ben Affleck
