The top average attendances in Europe in the past 2017/18 season, saw 38 clubs average 40,000 or more at home.

Top once again were Borussia Dortmund,  an impressive 79,496 turning up at home in the Bundesliga.

Another German club, Bayern Munich were in second place with 75,000.

Then followed two English clubs in Manchester United and Tottenham, the latter taking advantage of Wembley’s capacity, especially for the more attractive matches.

In total, Germany had 11 clubs who had average attendances of 40,000+ in 2017/18, more than any other league.

Number of clubs in each league who averaged 40,000+ in 2017/18:

11 Germany

8 England

4 Spain

3 Italy, France, Portugal

2 Scotland, Holland

1 Russia, Turkey

Despite being in the Championship in 2016/17, Newcastle actually had the 15th highest average attendances in Europe (see below).

However, despite crowds rising this past season, they actually have fallen to 18th place.

Stttgart, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Spurs, and Atletico Madrid all increasing beyond Newcastle, whilst Hamburg and Borussia Monchengladbach fell below NUFC.

The 2016/17 figures saw Sunderland just creep into the top 30, I wonder whatever happened to them…?
