Newcastle’s struggles this season leave them in 19th position in the league, still winless from their eleven games so far.
Apathy had set in at St James’s Park, something which had been apparent even before the pandemic as the club gave away 10,000 free season tickets in order to fill St James’s Park.
However, a new dawn is now upon the club with new owners and new management coming to St James’s Park, will this entice more fans back into the stadium?
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.
