3. Newcastle United, St. James’ Park, 50,778

17. Fulham, Craven Cottage, 22,310
18. Bolton Wanderers, Reebok Stadium, 21,047
19. Portsmouth, Fratton Park, 19,727
20. Wigan Athletic, JJB Stadium, 18,439

The average attendance so far this season is 35,901.

It’s interesting to see a club such as Sunderland, who have a very passionate and loyal fanbase, are above teams such as Chelsea, Spurs and Everton. Part of the reason is because Sunderland play in a ground that has a 49,000 capacity, while Chelsea, Tottenham and Everton can’t fit any more people in their grounds.

At the bottom of the chart, it’s no surprise to see Wigan who continually struggle to bring fans in as many of the residents in the area prefer rugby league to soccer.
