It’s official: Irons fans are the best!


Irons fans can claim to be the best in Great Britain after research revealed that their stadium has been 99.75 per cent full on average this season.

Premier League fans around nearly all of the clubs can be proud of their support this season, with only two sides seeing their stadium less than 90 per cent full on average so far in 2015-16 – only two non-Premier League clubs are averaging more than 90 per cent attendance in the UK this season.

process (1)Research by MyVoucherCodes shows that Upton Park is the fullest ground of all 92 in the football league, narrowly beating Norwich City’s Carrow Road (99.71 per cent) and Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United (99.47 per cent). Arsenal, Chelsea and Stoke City are the only other three Premier League clubs to beat 99 per cent attendance.

  • Radai Lama says:

    Don’t know if ‘best’ is the right word.If you use that term you are then saying Manure fans are the 3rd Best in the country,Arse 4th,Chelski 5th.Don’t think so 🙂

  • bubs says:

    Fleetwood Town above the Spuds seems about right,

  • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

    Well done us and Fleetwood aswell !!!

  • bubs says:

    If we are in the championship we will still fill the ground,
    We are not some Billionaires play thing like City and Chelski,
    Once people get those season tickets they will stay in the family,

  • West Ham Exile says:

    Don’t want to p#ss on your parade but we couldn’t even fill UP all the time last season bubs.Let’s see how things are in a couple of years.Really,really hope you are right mate but I ain’t so convinced if I’m honest.

  • bubs says:

    Come on would you really pay good money to watch a Hippo side playing for 0-0 draw every game,with a manager who treated you like arse scrapings,
    But even then the ground was nearly full every game,
    Surely that is the real answer to the problem
    As you know my favourite word is entertainment and if you dish that up week in week out the ground will be fall,so it’s up to the owners to demand that from manager and staff and then provide the back up to make that happen
    Then you have a good viable business that makes money and
