The average Premier League attendances 2017/18 – All 20 clubs
Interesting taking a look at the average Premier League attendances so far this season.
One stand out fact, is that 17 of the 20 clubs have a home average so far that is at least 94% of their capacity.
The exceptions being Bournemouth averaging 91% of their capacity, Burnley 88% and West Brom 85% (Tottenham is showing as 79% of Wembley but the local authority are putting restrictions on crowds).
The figures overall are testament to just how successful the Premier League is, when it comes to filling seats, as well as making money…
Table via Soccer Stats:
As you can see, Newcastle have the seventh highest of the average Premier League attendances and with all clubs selling out most of their stadium to season ticket holders, their place in the pecking order is guaranteed.
Newcastle of course were second highest behind Manchester United until Arsenal moved to the Emirates, then a number of others have followed, either moving grounds or expanding their current ones – West Ham, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham.
With Chelsea and Everton planning/looking to do the same, we could be looking at a distinct split between the top 10 biggest clubs (when it comes to capacity/fanbase anyway…) and the rest.
Both Everton and Chelsea are aiming for capacities of at least fifty thousand, which in the current 20 Premier League clubs, would lead to 10 with 50,000+capacities and the other 10 with stadiums holding 32,000 or less.
