Liverpool Football Club is one of the most recognizable football clubs in the world, and alongside Manchester United, the biggest club in England.
Anfield is one of the most iconic stadiums in the game, and Liverpool fans flock in their numbers to this institution of football whenever the Reds have the luxury of playing at home.
Courtesy of figures provided by the Liverpool World, we have decided to see how Anfield’s average attendance ranks against rival Premier League sides.
Of course, average attendance is tied to the capacity of the stadium, so we have decided to also include the capacity in addition to the average match day attendance.
In doing so, we have made the rankings according to how many seats the respective clubs can fill of their overall capacity instead of just the number of spectators.
Read on for the full countdown to see where Liverpool ranks, and which rival fills up the most seats in their respective stadiums:
7th place: Etihad Stadium – 53, 427 (capacity: 55, 017)
1590 seats open.
Manchester City have been Liverpool’s title rivals for the last few years, with the Reds painfully missing out on the Premier League title by a point on two occasions to the Citizens.
While Pep Guardiola’s side don’t have the fan base that some of the more established ‘top six’ sides have, they are still capable of filling their stadium to some degree.
It seems that winning lots of things is not the only factor involved in filling up a stadium on a matchday.
Jurgen Klopp’s men remain the only side to have won the Premier League since the 2017/18 season, with City winning five out of six league titles since then.
6th place: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – 61,726 (capacity: 62 850)
1124 seats open.
Tottenham Hotspur’s stadium is largest club ground in London and is also the third largest football stadium in England.
The stadium is an engineering marvel and truly is a ‘next gen’ football stadium. The ground replaced White Hart Lane as the home for Spurs.
The average capacity might have been less in previous years, but Ange Postecoglou has got his side playing an attacking brand of football – a brand that will surely fill the terraces in North London.
