    Was having a quick look at where the teams in the attendance competition were located and came across this.

    Snapshot of the German Bundesliga

    The 18-team Bundesliga has the highest per-game attendance of any football league in the world. The average crowd of 41,000 is 5,000 higher than the premier league. These attendances are achieved by low ticket prices, and huge stadiums (many with safe standing areas). Unlike other European Football leagues, Bundesliga teams are required to be majority-owned by German club members (known as the 50+1 rule). This rule effectively prohibits private ownership by foreign billionaires.

    Exceptions to the 50+1 rule allow Bayer Leverkusen, 1899 Hoffenheim, and VfL Wolfsburg to be owned by corporations or individual investors. In the cases of Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg, the clubs were founded by major corporations (respectively Bayer AG and Volkswagen) as sports clubs for their employees, while Hoffenheim has long received its primary support from SAP co-founder Dietmar Hopp, who played in the club's youth system.

    Wish we would run our leagues in a similar manner. They get a lot of things right, the Krauts, fair play.
