Hull City attendance slumps as top 8 clubs all report sell outs

Hull Tiger

November 8 – Hull City became the first Premier League side to dip below 70% capacity for a home league game this season. With just 69.44% of its KCOM stadium full, the 7,818 unfilled seats accounted for just over half the unfilled League seat total of 15,128. Across the league 366,760 seats were filled.

Burnley also had a poor attendance at a low-capacity stadium with 3,350 seats unfilled for a brand of football which is not winning plaudits for its attractiveness but is keeping the club half way up the division.

Swansea topped the weekly attendance table reporting 138 more seats filled than their official capacity. London clubs Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham were all over 99% full.

West Ham will be relieved that there was no repeat of the violent scenes that have marred most of their games at their new London Stadium home. The full capacity of 60,000 at the stadium has still to be passed by local authorities who are still concerned about fan safety.

Of more than 4.104 million seats available to Premier League fans this season, just 181,847 seats have gone unfilled at an overall average capacity of 94,47%.

This figure is potentially lower than the real figure as the Insideworldfootball data takes the reported attendance number and the official capacity of the stadium. It does not take into account any seat kills for media or safety reasons.

The first eight teams in this weeks table all reported sold out stadiums.
