The Premier League will pass the 250million fan mark at Tuesday night's games - 20 years after its launch.

The landmark has been hailed by the PL's chief executive Richard Scudamore, with average attendances swelling by more than 50% compared to 1992-93, the first season of the league. Scudamore also said crowds were now more diverse and family-friendly.

He said: "Having 250 million fans come into Premier League grounds is a terrific landmark. The Premier League is now the most watched and supported football league in the world and what people see is great football played in fantastic stadia packed full of vibrant, passionate fans."
