November 23 – The English Premier League surpassed the 4 million ticket sales mark at the weekend. So far this season only 200,770 match tickets have gone unsold out of a total 4.471 million available.
Stoke City topped the weekly attendance chart selling more tickets than their official capacity. Man Utd came in second place filling 99.38% of available seats at Old Trafford.
Southampton leapt up the chart to third place showing a greater efficiency in their ticketing policy with the visit of Liverpool. Saints home games are usually sold out, but they generally report a capacity of below 97%.
Sunderland came bottom of the table but still sold over 41,000 fans for their 49,000 capacity Stadium of Light. They were rewarded with a thumping win over fellow strugglers Hull City.
West Brom, who played Monday night had 3,834 seats unfilled in a 26,013 capacity stadium. The Baggies have been generally struggling to sell out the Hawthorns this season. With television pictures showing gaps all round the stadium, the unfilled seats cannot be blamed on poor away support on a cold Monday night.
