Premier League Season Attendance Remains Flat through Week 10, at 36,520

The Premier League saw its best week in terms of capacity fill rate in week 10 of the 2013-14 season at 98.7%, more than 1.5 pts higher than the next best week (97.1% in week 1). BPL season average attendance remained flat in week 10, down only -0.08% to 36,520, which was driven by the increased fill rate, as the home team average capacity went down in week 10 by -7.6% versus the prior week, which should have driven the season average attendance down more so than it actually did.

Only Stoke were unable to fill their stadium, The Brittania, to above the season average capacity fill rate of 95.4%, coming in at 93.9%. There were two sellouts this week: Fulham packed Craven Cottage to capacity for Manchester United, even though fans witnessed a 3-1 loss, and Cardiff City sold out vs Swansea City in an exciting 1-0 victory for the Bluebirds.
