Spurs break 80,000 barrier again as Round 33 continues to fill Premier League grounds

April 19 – Spurs packed in more than 80,000 for a Premier League home fixture at Wembley for the fourth time this season, their third highest league attendance of the season.

Spurs have beaten the Premier League record attendance figure four times this season. That record was for Old Trafford record of 76,098 fans who watched Manchester United play Blackburn Rovers in March 2007.

Round 33 of Premier League fixtures last weekend saw more than 440,000 people attend the 10 home matches. More than 12.5 million seats have been filled at Premier League grounds this season.

In terms of stadium efficiency and the percentage of the stadium capacity filled, West ham again topped the weekly ranking just 205 seats unfilled. For all the trouble the club have had policing their fans at their new ground, getting them to buy tickets is not one of them.

Newcastle United came second in the table with just 195 seats unfilled, a far cry from their relegation season two years ago when the team regularly played in from of crowd filling less than 90% of the stadium. Even Burnley managed to sell out Turf Moor with a 96% capacity attendance as the club push for European representation.

Nine clubs reported attendances of over 96% of their stadium capacity. Only Spurs were below 90%.
