West Ham reach seventh in European football table

tixWest Ham have been ranked seventh in European football for the number of tickets sold last season.

A Daily Mail feature says For the first time in football history, more than 10 clubs across Europe sold at least one million tickets each for league games in the same season, and five of the 11 who achieved it were from the Premier League in 2016-17.

West Ham stormed into that elite group in seventh place as they took up residence at the London Stadium and sold 1,082,468 tickets last season.

Barcelona sold most tickets for their league games, or almost 1.49m at an average of more than 78,000 per La Liga game and was following in total aggregate sales by Manchester United (1.43m or 75,290 per game).

Of the best 10 attended divisions across Europe – at all levels, not just top divisions – three of them were in England last season. The Premier League was at No1 in total ticket sales (13,607,420) with the Championship at No3 (11,086,368), beaten only by the Bundesliga at No2 (12,703,896). England’s third-tier League One (4,373,496) is No9 on the list, selling more tickets last season than the top divisions of most European nations, the ‘Big 5’ and the Netherlands aside.

  1. We were also 8th in top 10 of most avg attendance for 2017 w likes of Bayern, BVB, Schalke, Celtic, Arsenal, Man U, Real & few others.
    But are only club in that top 10 not in top 6 at time came out were in relegation.
    So we have hit next level in attendance now it’s time for next level in funding bc 17th & no deals done sells look more likely.

    Tho the Smaeulsen loan to Burton Surprised me big fan if him great on balk & creative playmaker hope he does well
    And hope we are working on deals like that quietly. Bc need some creativity
