How full has each Premier League stadium been this season?


The Premier League season is over and the final league table is complete.

By now, we all know that Manchester City clinched the title, Tottenham finished fourth while Burnley, Watford and Norwich were relegated.

But that’s not the table we’re interested in right now.

Instead, we want to bring you a table that is far more important. It’s the Premier League attendance league table.

Using data from Transfermarket, we’ve identified how full each stadium has been this season in terms of the percentage of their capacity. 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?

Which stadium has been the most full throughout the season? And which has been the emptiest?

Let’s take a look:

Burnley v Newcastle United - Premier League


So, congratulations to Leicester for winning the Premier League attendance table. The King Power Stadium was 99 per cent full on average this campaign which is mightily impressive.

They edged out relegated Norwich (98.7 per cent) who should be praised for their loyalty despite finishing bottom.

Arsenal, Newcastle and Everton complete the top five in what were very up and down campaigns for all three clubs.

Anfield and Old Trafford come next. Liverpool and Manchester United may be the two biggest clubs in world football and always sell out but it seems their stadiums aren’t always full to the brink every other week.

Liverpool v Wolverhampton Wanderers - Premier League

Elsewhere, Manchester City’s Etihad – often mocked for being ’empty’ – was actually the 11th fullest stadium this season.

Among those who were emptier was the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium which comes in 18th at 91.1 per cent full this campaign.

Below them is Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge with the Blues being unable to sell home tickets due to sanctions towards the end of the season.

But the emptiest stadium of them all this season was Burnley’s Turf Moor. The Clarets were relegated on the final day and could only boast a capacity of 87.8 per cent on average.
