Two of Germany’s best-attended teams were relegated to 2. Bundesliga last season.

The 2022-23 Bundesliga season was filled with drama, suspense, and fan loyalty. The German top-flight remained the best-attended league in Europe, thanks to the unwavering support of the fans.

In this article, we take a look at the top 5 best-attended teams in the Bundesliga based on their average attendance.

Borussia M├Ânchengladbach (52,438)

At number five, Borussia Monchengladbach stands with an average attendance of 52,438. Despite selling key players Breel Embolo and Yann Sommer, Gladbach seemed poised to secure a European spot for the following season. However, a series of unfortunate results towards the end of the campaign saw them finish tenth in the league for the second consecutive season.

Hertha BSC (53,652)

Hertha BSC, having an average attendance of 53,652, experienced a turbulent season. Despite the financial backing from billionaire Lars Windhorst, which led to a significant spending spree and a series of managerial changes, the team found itself in a constant struggle against relegation. The “big city club” moniker became a term of derision when Hertha’s downfall was confirmed after a dramatic 1-1 draw against Bochum.

Schalke 04 (61,133)

Schalke 04 faced a heartbreaking relegation, finishing 17th in the league, but their fans’ dedication remained steadfast. The Royal Blues secured the third position on the attendance list, proving that loyalty knows no bounds, even during difficult times. Once a formidable force in German football, the club faced a prolonged period of hardship, making their supporters’ commitment all the more commendable.

Bayern Munich (75,006)

As the defending champions, Bayern Munich continued their dominance, claiming their 11th consecutive league title. Despite an eventful campaign that saw them part ways with manager Julian Nagelsmann mid-season, the Bavarian giants emerged triumphant once again. Their remarkable on-field success and star-studded squad contributed to the second-place finish in terms of attendance. The allure of watching Bayern’s breathtaking football up close attracted fans from all corners of the country.

Borussia Dortmund (81,228)

Topping the attendance charts for the 2022-23 season was Borussia Dortmund. The Yellow Wall, as their famous South Stand is known, created an electrifying atmosphere at Signal Iduna Park for every home game. Despite narrowly missing out on the title to Bayern Munich on the final day of the season, Dortmund’s passionate fans continued to inspire the team. The club’s legacy of nurturing young talents and playing attractive football ensured that they remained a powerhouse both on and off the field.
