Barclays Premier League clubs ranked by average attendance 2019/20

While old rivals Liverpool FC may have run off with the Premier League trophy, it was Manchester United who topped the average attendance table in the 2019/2020 season. An average of 57,942 watched every home match at Old Trafford, meaning that the Red Devils more or less sold out the stadium for every one of the Premier League home games. This figure is skewed by the fact that the final 92 fixtures of the Premier League season were played behind closed doors as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

Best league in the world?

Premier League attendances have been on the rise for the last decade, with the 2017/18 season representing a peak in the figures - some 38,484 fans on average attended each home game of that season. Whilst these are impressive figures for a league often dubbed the best in the world, they pale in comparison to those of the German Bundesliga. Over 43,000 fans attended an average game in Germany’s top league in 2019, with the highest average attendance found at Borussia Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park.

Manchester United’s supremacy in danger?

While they remain the most successful Premier League team of all time, Manchester United has found success hard to come by in recent years. Indeed, United’s most recent title came back in the 2012-13 season, which was legendary manager, Sir Alex Ferguson’s, final season of management before his retirement. This title drought in recent years will only have been compounded by the fact that local rivals, Manchester City, were crowned champions in both 2018 and 2019. However, the Red Devils can take solace in the fact that the club remains one of the most valuable brands in world soccer..
