Premier League Stadium Capacity

What Is The Premier League 2019/20 Stadium Capacity – For Every Club

Sports Sanitiser

The football clubs playing in the FA Premier League in season 2019/20 had the following ground capacities. The top 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.

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.

Club Name of Ground Capacity
Manchester United Old Trafford 74,879
Tottenham Hotspur Tottenham Hotspur Stadium 62,062
Arsenal Emirates Stadium 60,704
West Ham United Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park 60,000
Manchester City Etihad Stadium 55,017
Liverpool Anfield Road 53,394
Newcastle United St. James Park 52,305
Aston Villa Villa Park 42,095
Chelsea Stamford Bridge 40,834
Everton Goodison Park 39,414
Southampton St.Mary’s Stadium 32,384
Leicester City King Power Stadium 32,261
Sheffield United Bramall Lane 32,125
Wolverhampton Wanderers Molineux Stadium 32,050
Brighton & Hove Albion The American Express Community Stadium 30,750
Norwich City Carrow Road 27,359
Crystal Palace Selhurst Park Stadium 25,486
Watford Vicarage Road Stadium 22,200
Burnley Turf Moor 21,944
AFC Bournemouth Vitality Stadium 11,364

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.
