In the first eight LaLiga home match days, the average attendance has increased by some 6,000 fans in comparison to the same fixtures from last season, which is a 28.1% rise
The fanbase has started to dream again. Valencia CF fans are not only enjoying watching the team fight until the final whistle each game, but the players themselves are liking the energy that is being shared with them from the stands every time they play at home.
One of the club’s aims for the current season was to get the bond between the team and the fans back after two disappointing years, and that has been successful. As shown by the increased ticket sales this season, in the first eight match days of LaLiga, Mestalla has had an average attendance of some 40,766 fans - an increase of 5,918 spectators when compared to the same fixtures from last campaign against the same opponents.
In all of those games, there has been an noticeable rise, aside from the opening home match of the season versus Las Palmas where there was a 3% decrease. Valencia CF’s league game versus Malaga CF saw a 37% rise, with the recent victory versus Leganes yielded another impressive increase of 33%.
The amount of ticket sales per match is another reflection of the progress that has been made this season, with the individual sales coming out at 64,515 tickets over the first eight match days - an average of 8,064 per fixture. Compared to last season, there have been 1,772 extra tickets per match sold, which constitutes an increase of 28.16%.
