Premier League is the most-watched football league in the world. Fans around the world support their team with passion and dedication. Some of the clubs are able to fetch more crowds than others. With the last season played almost entirely behind closed doors, fans were eager to get back to the stadium this season. In this article, we have the Premier League clubs ranked according to attendance percentage during the 2021-22 season so far.
Here are the Premier League clubs ranked according to attendance percentage up to 28th Sept 2021 –
20. Turf Moor – Burnley [86.56%]
Burnley are yet to win a match and unsurprisingly, it is reflecting in their attendance figures. In their first three home games, the average attendance has been 18,525. It is 86.56% of the capacity of Turf Moor, which is 21401. Turf Moor’s faithful expect a lot more from their club and will hope to see that in the season ahead.
19. Goodison Park – Everton [90.39%]
Everton fans initially were unsure about their newly appointed manager Rafael Benitez, due to his past links with Liverpool. But things are a lot better now in that aspect. The club is sitting in fifth place after the first six games of the season. However, the attendance figures could definitely be better, with only 35,769 fans turning up on an average for the first three Premier League home games.
18. Brentford Community Stadium – Brentford [91.09%]
Playing in the Premier League for the first time ever, Brentford have made a very good start. They have acquired nine points from the first six matches, with 2 wins and three draws.

17. Selhurst Park – Crystal Palace [91.95%]
Irrespective of the numbers that turn up, the atmosphere of the stadium is top-notch. It’s widely acknowledged that Eagles supporters are some of the best around, producing brilliant fan displays on a regular basis, and creating one of the most imposing atmospheres in the Premier League. The average turnout this season has been 24,022, which could be a little better given the passion the supporters have for the club.

The capacity of Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium is 32,505 and it has been 92.3% full so far this season. They have made a very poor start to the season with only four points in the first six matches.
