By Dominic Vieira, writing from Portugal

IPAM (Instituto Poruguês de Administração de Marketing) is a Portuguese marketing firm who researched the stadium attendances in 36 European leagues. There was a a total number of 544 clubs used to find out which teams had the highest average attendance per game in the 2009/2010 season.

Top 10 European Teams Average Attendance

1. FC. Barcelona - 78, 000

2. Borussia Dormund - 77, 248

3. Real Madrid - 75, 133

4. Manchester United - 74, 864

5. Bayern Munich - 69, 000

6. Schalke 04 - 61, 327

7. Arsenal - 59, 927

8. Hamburg - 55, 240

9. Inter Milan - 55, 149

10. Benfica - 50, 033

It’s not a surprise to find Barcelona in first place as they have the biggest stadium in Europe, it can hold up to 98, 772 fans. Many will be surprised to see three German clubs are placed in the Top 10, AFR has explored this issue before and I strongly urge you to read Eric Beard’s Failures Of The Free Market In Football: Why The Bundesliga Puts The Premier League To Shame
