Average Newcastle United Home Attendances 2013/14 and Every Other Premier League Club
Another season out of the way but while performances tailed off on the pitch, what was the story on the terraces and how did the Newcastle United home attendances compare to the rest of the Premier League?
In 2012/13 Newcastle United averaged 50,517 in their 19 Premier League matches, with the highest crowd figure for the home game with Spurs which was 52,385.
The highest home crowd for 2013/14 was 52,280, who turned up to see the humiliation against Sunderland. Though the official capacity is still shown as 52,404 on the club website, the addition of extra boxes last year would seem likely to have reduced the number of seats slightly, the fact the highest crowd of the 2013/14 season being over a hundred down on the previous season would appear to support that.
Obviously the number of season ticket holders is by far the biggest factor for most clubs’ attendances so it will be interesting to gauge exactly how many have/haven’t renewed when the new season kicks off. Despite the club desperately claiming otherwise, most fans believe that thousands of fans have said enough is enough since the renewal process started in January/February with those on the 10 year deals.
