Aston Villa have denied Sunderland the title of having the most empty seats over the course of the 2014/15 season.

Using figures compiled by Sky, as you see below Villa’s fans did them proud as usual, leaving an impressive 164,388 empty seats at Villa Park over the course of their 19 Premier League matches.

Sunderland fans did their best but were a distant second with a still valiant effort of 111,017 left unsold.

Burnley were way back in third, 64,855 left empty.

The figures relate to tickets sold and so don’t take into account for example the thousands of empty seats at the Emirates every match, with Arsenal ‘fans’ not bothering to turn up even though they’ve already paid.

    there would av been more empty seats for the mackems but most of them take up two.lol

    That isn’t true… those are ticket sales figures… Arsenal have thousands of empty seats each game bought by people, organisations, and ticket sellers…. but not actually sat on…. the United boycott by season ticket holders would also register as an occupied seat….

    Clubs are not releasing ‘attendance’ figures…

    Hey – who would want to sit on those faded patio stools? And to be expected to pay for it too! Come on SAFC, you surely owe your supporters better than that.
