What Are The Current Premier League Stadium Capacity By Each Club?

The football clubs playing in the FA Premier League in season 2019/20 had the following ground capacities. The biggest Premier League stadium capacity continues to be at Old Trafford which holds almost 75,000 fans. Over the last few years improvements have been made to increase the capacity at this stadium however, an expansion of the seating area for fans with disabilities has taken the seats available down to 74,879. To compare with the new season please check out the stadium capacities for 2020/21 season.

The ground with the fewest seats is at AFC Bournemouth which currently holds 11,364. This is less than most clubs in League 1. There was talk of plans being submitted to develop the existing stadium but this has been rejected. There is also further talk of AFC Bournemouth looking to move away from the current ground and build a bigger stadium which would be more suitable to host Premier League Football.

What Is The Stadium Capacity Of Clubs In The English Premier League?

Tottenham Hotspur finally moved into their new stadium on the site of the old White Hart Lane ground, after months of delays. The capacity is over 62,000 and hosts a huge amount of corporate seating to maximise match day revenue. This is seen as the future for most football clubs, when looking a ground development or building new stadia, as it gives the fan a fantastic match day experience whilst also boosting club revenue streams.

If all of the grounds were full on a round of Premier League fixtures the amount of fans attending would be 808,627. Given the average price for the cheapest seats across the league are around £35 this would give an income in excess of £28 million. How AFC Bournemouth can continue to survive though on gates under 11,500 only time will tell.
