Tottenham Hotspur are losing more than £165,000 in revenue per home game – the highest in the Premier League – because of unsold match tickets, research has found.
A study examining average attendances this season shows that Tottenham have 5,000 more empty seats than any other top-flight club.
Chelsea are also losing substantial income. According to the research, they are averaging around 3,000 empty seats, which adds up to just under £155,000 per game at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are second on this list – losing just under £155,000 per game at Stamford Bridge
5. Man City
An average of 8,284 empty seats per matchday are costing Spurs – struggling to deliver under manager Antonio Conte – approximately £165,680 per home game. This is according to research from bookmaker OLBG.com, which makes its calculations based on the cheapest available ticket.
Southampton and Burnley were the third and fourth-placed clubs for unsold ticket revenue. Champions Manchester City were fifth.
The failure to sell out is in part a result of a reluctance by some to attend games during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Leicester City have lost the least revenue, with very few unsold seats in the Premier League – the Foxes leaving just 251 free on a typical matchday.
The King Power Stadium has a capacity of 32,312, which is far from being the smallest in the division. This means that Leicester lose out on £6,526 when playing at home.
