Must-see football: The clubs with the best average attendances in European football
At the end of the 2016-17 Bundesliga season, Borussia Dortmund were not top of the league. In fact, the team had a bit of a down season. However, the club did top one table in Europe during the season. Borussia topped the table for having the average highest attendance in all of Europe. Not a bad little stat for a team that was nearly bankrupt during the 2000s.
Borussia’s average attendance in 2016-17 was 79,653 at Signal Iduna Park. It is a great stadium, and one that should be on every football fan’s bucketlist.
The German’s nearest rival when it came to attendance was Barcelona. The Spanish team attracted 77,944 to games a Camp Nou. Like Signal Iduna Park, Camp Nou is a landmark, and a place to see all on its own. Manchester United finished the 2016-17 season in third place in terms of average attendance. The Red Devils attracted 75,290 to Old Trafford.
Top 50 teams by attendance 2016-17
|8||West Ham United||56,972|
|24||Paris Saint Germain||45,317|
Perhaps the top 10’s biggest surprise was not Schalke, which is an institution in Gelsenkirchen, but West Ham. The Hammers attracted 56,000-plus. Of course, the team play at the London Olympic Stadium; but that figure was still more than Manchester City and Liverpool.
While there will be some change in the top 50 during the 2017-18 season, many of the teams that made the list will stay the same. Of course, you can experience these amazing venues and teams with WoWTickets.football.
