Scottish Premiership sets new attendances record

The Scottish Premiership broke its overall attendance record on Wednesday in the penultimate round of fixtures.

Just 9,458 more fans were needed in the six top flight matches to surpass the 3,639,331 who attended in the 2018-19 season and that tally was easily breached.

The average matchday attendance in the Premiership this term is 100,829, with Scotland enjoying the best gates per capita in Europe.

The SPFL era started in 2013.

“It’s hugely encouraging to see our crowds continue to go from strength to strength, given the importance of gate money,” said SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster.

“Supporters attending our games help create the unique atmosphere that make our matches so compelling and I hope they’re looking forward to the many important games across the division tonight.”
