This record figure is characterized by 555,000 more people having made the trip during the 190 meetings compared to 2021-2022, an increase of 12%.

At mid-season 2019-2020, so before the covid crisis, there were 234,000 fewer spectators, which corresponds to an increase of 5%.

Equally interesting: the average attendance is logically growing, with

23,773 spectators per match.

Since the first day, the occupancy rate has averaged 81% in Ligue 1 stadiums, an increase of 11 points compared to last season and 7 points compared to 2019-2020.

Still according to the LFP, this is due to the sharp increase in subscriptions, which amounts to 13% compared to the previous season.

There are 290,000 subscribers spread over the twenty Ligue 1 clubs, an average of 14,500.

Unsurprisingly, it is Olympique de Marseille which comes out on top in terms of attendance for a match.

Surprisingly, it was during the reception of AC Ajaccio, at the beginning of October, that the VĂ©lodrome attracted the greatest number of people (63,414).

The Marseille club has an average of 62,449 spectators at home, with an occupancy rate of 94%.

PSG follows with "only" 47,667 spectators, and a record occupancy rate of 99% at the Parc des Princes!

During this first part of the season, only six stadiums (OM, PSG, therefore, as well as Lens, Rennes, Starsbourg and Clermont) have equaled or exceeded an occupancy rate of 90%.

The dunce cap returns, also unsurprisingly, to AS Monaco, with a 42% occupancy rate (6865 on average) at Louis II, just preceded by the Stade de l'Aube in Troyes (47% and 9242 spectators per game).
