England: Attendance at Premier League stadiums in the 2023/24 season Another season, another league title for Manchester City. The award for highest attendance also went to the city of Manchester as well, but to the Red Devils, despite the team's worst season in Premier League history. As many as six clubs surpassed one million spectators this season, with five stadiums filling up at an average of more than 99%. Amazing.


Best clubs, stadiums or fans?

According to many commentators, the Premier League is currently the best league in the world. While this is a debatable and controversial statement, it is hard to argue with the statement that the British Isles have the most recognisable stadiums. From the classic Wembley, through the iconic Old Trafford and Anfield to the ultra-modern Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. And that's just half the list of arenas known to every football fan.

Although the average Premier League attendance - 38,557 fans per game according to Transfermarkt - is not at all high compared to previous seasons (it was 40,236 in last year's competition), it is still well above the results of the Spanish, Italian and French leagues:

  1. Bundesliga - 39,507
  2. Premier League - 38,557
  3. Serie A - 30,952
  4. La Liga - 29,017
  5. Ligue One - 27 023

A total of 14,651,758 fans watched Premier League matches from the stands, according to the German portal. ESPN reports a slightly lower figure of 14,160,609 spectators.

Six teams in the million club

The English were only overtaken by the Germans, but the Bundesliga failed to beat the Premier League in one but very telling statistic. As many as six English clubs - Manchester United, West Ham, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City - crossed the magic barrier of one million tickets sold in a season.

In Germany, two teams have managed to do so (BVB and Bayern), as well as in Spain (Real and Atlético, although Barça is usually in that group too), in Italy three (Inter, AC Milan and Roma) and none in France.

Which club played with the fullest stands?

First place in the most full stadium category went to West Ham United, whose London Stadium was 99.9% full on average! Similar statistics were recorded by Newcastle United at St. James’ Park (99.6%), Brighton & Hove Albion at American Express Stadium and Arsenal at Emirates Stadium (99.2% each) and Brentford, which plays at Gtech Community Stadium (99%).

It is difficult to talk about the worst club here, but the least full was Anfield with a result of... 91.9%. That's a better fill percentage than achieved by any club in La Liga this season, and more than twice as good as the least full stadium in Ligue One, AS Monaco's Stade Louis II, which was occupied at a disappointing 44.2% on average.

These are the overall statistics according to Transfermarkt:
