Barclays Premier League average attendance was 34,578 in week 6, a -7.49% decrease versus the previous week. The Season average rose by -0.92% to 36,268 driven by week 6’s poor stadium fill rates. Stadiums were on average filled to 92.13%, lowering the season average by 0.49 points from the prior week.
There were 6 games that were filled below the season average capacity fill rate, representing 60% of the match ups in week 6. Lowest capacity rates came from Aston Villa, Everton, Sunderland, and Cardiff City whose stadiums were all filled below 90%, something that is very rarely seen in the BPL. There was one sellout in week 6: Swansea vs Arsenal at Liberty Stadium in Wales at 100.9% full.
