Wor Flags have helped to create a wonderful atmosphere at St James’s Park this season and it is one of the contributing factors for the side’s recent resurgence.
There’s few stadiums in the world that can compare to a full and noisy St James’s Park – but how do their attendances this season compare to the rest of the Premier League?
With supporters being the heartbeat of football, something often forgotten in the modern game, here, using data provided by Transfermarkt, we have listed the average attendances of each Premier League ground so far this campaign to see which team have been best supported, and which sides have spare room to fill in their stadiums.
