With the decision of all matches from the 25th round to be held behind closed doors, although there are still 3 rounds to go before the end of the championship, Football Industry presents the ranking of stadium attendances of the 2019/2020 edition of Liga NOS.
With this new paradigm, clubs played only 12 games with fans inside the stadium with the exception of FC Paços de Ferreira with 13 and Portimonense with 11. This fact led to an estimated loss of around 1 million spectators with a consequent impact on ticketing and memberships revenues and the remaining related flows.
As in previous seasons, the disparities between the so-called “3 Grandes” (SL Benfica, FC Porto, and Sporting CP) are remarkable. In the season that is still going on, the three clubs registered 59% of the total spectators of the competition with an average of 39,446 fans per game and an average occupancy rate of 71%. These figures contrast with those of the remaining 15 clubs of Liga NOS: they registered 41% of the total spectators of the competition, an average of 5,479 fans per game, and an average occupancy rate of 44%.
