LaLiga breaks attendance record for sixth consecutive year

LaLiga broke its attendance record for the sixth consecutive year in the 2018-19 season, attracting 14,812,356 fans total to its two divisions. This represents a 3.8 per cent increase on the previous season.

According to league figures, the top-flight Primera División surpassed the 10 million mark, with a total of 10,102,394 fans, which marked a 0.7 per cent decrease on the previous campaign.

The Segunda División, meanwhile, enjoyed a 15.2 per cent increase year on year, with 4,591,290 total fans. This rise came in spite of the fact that CF Reus did not compete in the second half of the season for disciplinary reasons.

A total of 118,672 supporters attended promotion play-off games, a 2.2 per cent increase on the previous year. Average stadium occupancy in both leagues was 72 per cent, a 2.7 per cent rise compared with the previous season.
