Arsenal get the seventh highest attendances at the Emirates in Europe a new book has revealed.

The Gunners are one of three clubs that make up the top ten, with Newcastle United coming in 10th place and United third.

The figures were included in Lee Price’s book, ‘The Bundesliga Blueprint’ which looks at ‘how Germany became the home of football’.

Price’s list in full:

  1. Borussia Dortmund 80,463
  2. Barcelona 77,632
  3. Man United 75,335
  4. Real Madrid 73,081
  5. Bayern Munich 72,882
  6. Schalke 04 61,578
  7. Arsenal 59,992
  8. Hamburg 53,252
  9. Marseille 52,917
  10. Newcastle United 50,359

In the book, Price looks at the German’s 10-year plan which forced clubs to invest in youth, limit the number of foreign players in their teams and how to build without accruing debt.

It sounds like a manual the Premier League could do with paying attention to.
