Ranking Premier League teams by average percentage of stadium filled

The Premier League is hailed across the world as the best league on the planet, and one of the reasons why is the fans.

While Premier League grounds might lack the intimidating atmosphere of their German and Italian counterparts, what's certain is that English fans will always turn out to support their team.

Some leagues can only dream of full stadiums every week, whereas the Premier League has the second-highest average attendance in Europe.

Only the Bundesliga can better the average Premier League gate of 40,444 this season.



England's top flight has some of the biggest stadiums in Europe, and many of them are packed week-in week-out.

With a capacity of 74,879, Manchester United's Old Trafford is the biggest stadium in the league.

An average gate of 73,815 fans means that 98.6% of their stadium was full on matchdays this season, but that's only enough to place Erik ten Hag's side ninth on the list when compared to how full other team's stadiums are.


Perhaps surprisingly, given poor reviews the London Stadium receives, West Ham come out on top.

The Hammers filled 99.9% of their home on match days this season, and also have the fourth-biggest average attendance in the league with 62,460 match-going fans.

Newcastle, Tottenham, Arsenal and Everton make up the top five, as they all fill more than 99% of their ground each week.

Anfield has undergone plenty of expansion work in recent years, and Liverpool fans have taken full advantage.

The stadium has been 98.3% full this season, averaging a gate of 53,177. More expansion plans are in the works.

Another stadium set to be expanded is the Etihad Stadium, and for good reason.

Manchester City fans are often mocked for supposedly poor attendance, but they have filled 96.8% of their home on average this season.


The Premier League champions are planning another stadium extension soon which will bring their overall capacity to over 60,000.

Bournemouth rank last in the list, filling just 91% of their stadium this season.
