10 clubs with most passionate football fans
The notion of connecting a large stadium to a more passionate fan base has always seemed incomplete. It doesn’t feel right. Yes, Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona have huge stadiums that are almost always full of fans but attendance figures show that many clubs struggle to fill 90% of their stadium throughout the year.
There are some clubs – both big and small – who regularly beat that figure and have an almost full stadium through the year. The notion that they’re more passionate could prove to be more convincing in the grand scheme of things. So, which are these 10 clubs – across Europe – that have fans waiting to flock in irrespective of situation or table-position?
We look at Europe’s ten highest attendance figures – percentage wise – for football clubs. Some will surprise you and some will confuse the living daylights out of you:
#10 Stoke City – English Premier League
Mark Hughes’ Stoke City are having one of their finest Premier League seasons this time around. Currently 9th in the Premier League table, the Potters continue to draw a relatively solid crowd everytime they take to the field in either the league, the Emirates FA Cup or the EFL Cup.
Out of the 27,932 fans who can fit into the Bet365 stadium, the club draws an average of 27,400 fans every match – meaning they fill up 98.1% of their stadium every weekend. It’s because of figures like these – from a club like Stoke City who don’t have the most international exposure – that makes the Premier League a money-minting juggernaut.
