Premier League Stadiums Average Attendance Of Better Than 95% Over Holidays

Attendance for the "three fixtures of the holiday period" for the Premier League averaged more than 95% of stadium capacity for the matches Dec. 26, 28-29 and Jan. 1. Of a "total of 1,147,696 available seats in stadia, just 30,802 seats were unfilled," according to Paul Nicholson of INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL. Of the "so-called big clubs" Arsenal, ManU and Man City, all "filled over 99% of their capacity." Chelsea, Liverpool, Fulham, Newcastle, Norwich and Tottenham Hotspur also filled more than 98% of capacity at their stadiums. Of the three rounds of fixtures, Boxing Day was the "most difficult day on which to buy a ticket for a Premier League match." For most Premier League clubs, "there was no room at the Inn over the Christmas period" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 1/2).
