Bundesliga Attendance Decreases To 42,421 Per Game, About 3K Less Than Last Season
After years of increasing attendance numbers, the Bundesliga's positive trend "has come to halt during the current season," according to the DPA. With one remaining match weekend, "the Bundesliga's average attendance has been 42,421 per game." During the previous season, the league "set a new attendance record, averaging 45,116 fans per game." The main reason for the decrease "is Greuther Fürth's limited stadium capacity." The club, which will be relegated to the 2nd Bundesliga after the season, "averaged a Bundesliga low 16,842 fans per game." During the '11-12 season, SC Freiburg "had the lowest average attendance with 22,672." So far, a total of 12,599,146 people "have attended the games of the '12-13 Bundesliga season" (DPA, 5/13).
