Latest Liverpool FC figures reveal steady attendance since stadium revamp
Posted by Richard Bell on 15 Feb 2017
Matchday attendance at Anfield remained high throughout the first half of Liverpool FC’s 2016/17 campaign, according to new data.
Figures released today (February 15) by the club show that over 53k supporters turned for each of the Reds’ first nine home games bar one.
Attendance was highest for the clash against West Bromwich Albion in October, at 53,218, and its lowest for the match against regional rival Manchester United, at 52,769.
Close to 50% Reds supporters at Anfield are now season ticket holders, with LFC Members averaging over 10k tickets per game.
Around 14% those in attendance per game are home supporters with hospitality packages.
Last year the club completed a multi-million pound extension of their Main Stand, bringing the total stadium capacity to 54,074.
Liverpool said they have also welcomed an increased number of local and young fans to Anfield so far this season, having allocated more than 1,000 tickets per game through Local sales and the Red Neighbours community programme.
Earlier this year, LFC became the latest North West club to announce plans to improve their stadium’s provision for disabled fans.
