Newcastle United’s remarkable attendance stats since 2000 - compared to Celtic, Rangers & Liverpool

Newcastle supporters have regularly packed out St James Park since it was extended in 2000.

There has been plenty of talk about what comes next for St James Park and Newcastle United.

The surge in demand for season tickets caused by the increased expectations and ambition shown since the PIF-led consortium completed a takeover of the club last October has provoked discussion on the club’s spiritual home of over 130 years.

Does St James Park need to be extended to meet the demand to tickets? Is an extension possible given the location of the stadium or should the club consider building a new home elsewhere?

Those conversations will be ongoing but one thing seems certain, Eddie Howe’s men will play in front of sold-out capacity crowds throughout the new Premier League season as United supporters continue to rally behind their side.

But how does the Magpies average attendance since the turn of the millennium compare to those of major clubs around Europe?
