2018/19 Highest Average Stadium Attendances Revealed: Where Do Liverpool, Manchester United And Leeds Rank?

Don't try and get through Manchester when there's a United game on.
Don't try and get through Manchester when there's a United game on.

We still have around a third of the 2018/19 to go and, judging by the figures recorded for average stadium attendances, it’s apparent we’re still enamoured with the beautiful game with devoted football fans flocking to their venue of choice every weekend.

There’s no surprise that the most followed football club in the world Manchester United top the rankings and are on course to be the best-supported team in England for the 26th consecutive season.

The Red Devils are averaging 74,503 (up by nine if you're interested from 2017/18) for home Premier League games this season, just over 99% of the capacity at Old Trafford. It’s no hindrance that The Theatre of Dreams is simply breathtaking to anyone who has the privilege of visiting it.

United is followed immediately by London sides Arsenal and West Ham, the latter seeing 57,398 per game. Despite not having won a trophy since 1999, reasonable ticket prices has seen a larger number of fans venturing to Stratford, putting other clubs with arguably more prestige and success in the shade.

Three time Premier League champions Manchester City - despite what it looks like to those watching on TV - are at 54,113 in attendance, ahead of current title rivals Liverpool (52,781), who are also beaten by in-the-mix Spurs at their temporary home of Wembley (54,030).

There are a smattering of respectable Championship teams in the top 20.

Villa Park leads the pack, with an average attendance of 34,437. Leeds United may not have featured in the top tier in almost 15 years but their attendance averages remain an impressive 32,891 flocking to Elland Road. The Whites are 11th in the ranking

Two places beneath, Sunderland, despite slipping into League One, have garnered a marginally lower attendance than the club which won the Premier League title a little under three years ago, Leicester City. Of course possessing the eighth biggest club stadium in England helps.

The full list is available to view below.
