5. Aston Villa
As one of the biggest British football clubs, Villa has a huge fan base and pedigree. Villa Park often boasts a special atmosphere and that’s brought to away games too. Their fans love to chant and banter with the away fans. Thick or thin, Villa fans are always there for the team.
4. Manchester United
A case can be made that United fans create a better atmosphere away than at home. They have often been criticised for the often average atmosphere at Old Trafford in recent times, but when they go away from home the real diehards create an inspired atmosphere.
Liverpool have one of the best home fans in the world. The atmosphere inside Anfield can be very intimidating for away fans. Yet they are also an asset when the Reds travel, following their team in droves and providing vital encouragement. Rival fans regularly name their Liverpool counterparts as the noisiest in the country, both home and away.
2. Newcastle United
Magpies fans are some of the most hardcore in the world, mocking soft southerners in their coats and scarves when they rock up at the Emirates or Stamford Bridge. They are also extremely vocal and devoted, even though their team has been bang average ever since Mike Ashley purchased the club. A fan survey in 2020 saw Newcastle United run away with the prize of the Premier League’s best away fans with 19% of the vote.
1. Leeds United
Leeds fans are renowned for the passionate support they provide at every single game. They stuck with the team through thick and thin. They supported the club even when Leeds plunged down into the third tier of English football after entering administration in 2007.
One of the loudest sets of fans in England, United often take control of the atmosphere at away ends and inspire their team to victory. An online poll of more than 6,000 UK football fans conducted in April 2020 named the Leeds faithful as the best away supporters in the country, and it is easy to see why.
