Borussia Dortmund may not have won the Bundesliga this season, but there is one award that they can boast about, both within Germany and across the rest of Europe.
Figures released by worldfootball.net show that BVB top the charts when it comes to the highest average attendance throughout the campaign.
Signal Iduna Park’s capacity is said to be 81,359, so it’s a great credit to Dortmund fans that they consistently turn out and support their beloved team week-in-week-out.
Dortmund’s average attendance of 79,653 is by far the best in Europe, as Bayern sit in second with 75.000, whilst Manchester United lie in third with an average of 74, 960.
Perhaps surprisingly, Real Madrid only sit in fifth position with an average of 66, 982, whilst another big surprise in the top 10 sees West Ham included. The Hammers had a poor first season in their new home, but that didn’t stop an average of 56,885 fans flocking to the London Stadium throughout the last year.
