Top 10 Premier League Attendances For Gameweek 4, 2010

For a change of pace, I thought it’d be interesting to see which clubs had the highest attendances from this past weekend’s Premier League matches. Usually the list is pretty predictable especially when Manchester United plays at home because they always have the biggest attendances. But with both Man United, Chelsea and Liverpool all playing away this past weekend, here are the top ten attendances:

  1. Arsenal, Emirates Stadium (v Bolton), 59,876
  2. Newcastle United, St James’ Park (v Blackpool), 49,597
  3. Manchester City, City of Manchester Stadium (v Blackburn), 44,246
  4. Everton, Goodison Park (v Manchester United), 36,556
  5. West Ham United, Boleyn Ground (v Chelsea), 33,014
  6. Birmingham City, St Andrews (v Liverpool), 27,333
  7. Stoke City, Britannia Stadium (v Aston Villa), 25,899
  8. Fulham, Craven Cottage (v Wolves), 25,280
  9. West Bromwich Albion, The Hawthorns (v Spurs), 23,642
  10. Wigan Athletic, DW Stadium (v Sunderland), 15,844

Not surprisingly, Wigan Athletic propped up the rear. It’s nice to see the Geordies continually coming out to support their side. The capacity at St James’ Park is 52,387, so it was almost a sold-out match. As for the other home clubs in the Premier League who played this past weekend, most of the clubs were at or near full capacity.

    Nice. …the % capacity would also be interesting :)

    Since only ten games were played in the weekend — and because most of the time only ten games are scheduled for a weekend — the “top 10″ is meaningless; turn the list upside down and you’ve got the “bottom 10.”

    Percentage-of-capacity figures would be good.

    Just call it “Premier League weekend attendance,” give the percentages of capacity, and let go of the “top 10″ angle, please.

    Most of the capacities for each ground can be found here:

    Fulham has increased their capacity since those numbers.

    Good to see the Toon holding strong, say what you want about NUFC but their supporters are great. I’m sure Chelsea would kill to have their supporters be like NUFC

  5. Tom Hingley says:

    Here is the table for this season (ignore Blackpool as they obviously haven’t adjusted their capacity with regards to their stadium expansion).

  6. Justin says:

    numbers 6-10 resemble MLS numbers… hmmmmm
