Hellas Verona closes the ranking

Genoa is the team with the highest average attendance in Serie A Hellas Verona closes the ranking

Inter and Milan are the teams that, every week, host the most spectators inside their own stadium. However, there is a parallel statistic to that of total spectators that more truthfully describes the relationship between a club's supporters and their habit of attending the stadium. It does not concern the number of fans, but rather the average turnout of the facilities during match days. Leading this ranking is Genoa, which on average fills 97% of the seats at the Luigi Ferraris stadium. Undoubtedly driven by the enthusiasm generated by their return to Serie A and the acrobatic actions of Albert Gudmundsson, Genoa fans manage to fill practically every seat of the 33,000 in the stadium on a regular basis. In the second position of this special ranking is Juventus, whose fans manage to occupy an average of 96% of the seats, a result probably unexpected at the beginning of the season. Inter and Milan still make their mark in this case, with the Nerazzurri having a presence rate of 96% (slightly lower than the Bianconeri) and Milan with 94%. Roma, known for having a very passionate fan base, is the fifth and last Serie A team with a filling rate exceeding 90%, reaching a value close to 92%.

Looking at the ranking from bottom to top, it is the fans of Hellas Verona who achieve the worst figure. On average, only 58% of the Bentegodi is filled, a result worse than that achieved by Empoli (62%), which, however, benefits from a significantly smaller structure. The most curious data of all concerns Lazio, which loses - by no small margin - this atypical Roman derby. Despite the Biancocelesti totaling more than 44,000 spectators in every game (more than Juventus penalized by the limited capacity of the Allianz Stadium), they find themselves in 19th place in the ranking. These data are extracted at the Serie A halfway point, and the next 19 matchdays will determine the winners and losers. Not all clubs, it should be remembered, can put all stadium seats up for sale because of limitations related to facility use, such as the need for escape routes, buffering areas, or areas that are not accessible.
