Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal: How full has each Premier League side's stadium been this season?

Premier League stadiums

After months and months of Premier League matches being played behind closed doors, we will never tire of seeing stadiums packed again.

Fans add so much colour to a game of football – especially in the Premier League where the atmosphere can really impact what’s happening on the pitch.

But which club has the best fans in the Premier League?

QUIZ: Can you name the English club that plays in this stadium?

Which club plays in this stadium?

Measuring supporters based on how loud they are is a pretty difficult and unscientific task.

However, we think it should be judged on attendance. But not just the raw numbers because Manchester United will always come out on top with Old Trafford being the biggest stadium in the league.

Instead, we turned to Transfermarkt to see the percentage of each Premier League stadium this season.

On average, how full has each stadium been? This is based on fans actually attending, rather than tickets sold. We’re fully aware that almost every side technically ‘sells out’ but how many supporters actually turn up?

You can’t argue with those numbers.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the fullest – and emptiest – stadiums so far this campaign.

Turf Moor

So, Leicester have the best fans in the Premier League based on attendance. They boast an average of being 99.1 per cent full despite a fairly underwhelming campaign so far.

They edge out Norwich who, considering they’re in a relegation battle, are surprisingly second in this list.

Arsenal make up the top three with Mikel Arteta clearly capturing the attention of Gooners.

Elsewhere in the list, Liverpool find themselves in fifth place ahead of Manchester United in seventh.


Newcastle are in eighth but you’d expect their 97.4 per cent to increase with a few more signings in the January transfer window.

The Etihad – often referred to as the ‘Emptyhad’ – isn’t actually that empty on average in the Premier League. In fact, nine stadiums are actually more empty on average.

That includes Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea only having 92.4 per cent full stadium this season.

London rivals, Tottenham, are actually 19th in their list with them clearly struggling to fill their 62,062 capacity stadium.

But rock bottom is Burnley, who only have a 84.4 per cent full Turf Moor on average.
