Bundesliga Tops In Per-Game Attendance During '13-14 Season, Pluri Finds

Brazilian sports business consulting firm Pluri Consultoria released a study of the average crowd at football matches during the '13-14 season, according to Rafael Ocampo of LA AFICION. Germany's Bundesliga led all leagues with an average crowd of 43,173, followed by the EPL with an average of 36,589 fans per match. Rounding out the top five were La Liga (26,867), Serie A (23,365) and Liga MX (22,939). Attendance last season in both La Liga (-6%) and Mexico's top flight (-5%) fell from the numbers registered during the previous season. In five of the top 10 leagues globally, the average crowd represented a decrease from the previous year, compared to four leagues in the top 10 that registered larger average crowds. Attendance at Argentine first division matches remained the same as during the previous season (LA AFICION, 7/23). For the complete results of Pluri's study, click here.
