This week’s attendance facts include:
- After eight playing rounds, we can conclude that both the average attendance of the Serie A and the Primera División have hardly moved in comparison with last season.
- The Premier League records a higher average though, while that of the Bundesliga has gone down. This is mainly a function of the new entrants having higher or lower averages than the relegated clubs.
- With only one more playing round to go in the US Major League Soccer, it is almost time to write the overview. We can already tell that this year almost 40% of all matches sold out.
- The Ukrainian Premier League is currently recording very healthy attendances. On average 13,000 people make it to the stadium every match, though the difference is large between the clubs.
- In particular, Shakhtar’s attendances are excellent. They have thus far attracted an average of 43,889 spectators per match, which would rank them 23rd in Europe.
- We recently analysed which clubs draw the largest crowds away from home, and Brazil is one of those countries where the opponent very much determines the home crowd.
- For example, a few weeks ago Atlético Goianiense drew almost 24,000 to Estádio Serra Dourada when Flamengo came to visit, but only 176 people paid to see them play Internacionál a few weeks later.
