Top football clubs that have the most fans in the world (part 5)

Arsenal

According to some sources, Arsenal have about 125 million fans all over the world. However, other sources say the number is not that big – only about 70 million. Whatever the number is, it can’t be denied that the Gunners is one of the most supported football clubs in the world.

Arsenal fans are called Gooners, actually a derivation from the club’s nickname, the Gunners. Arsenal is the first Premier League club that has sold a percentage of its shares to fans, allowing them to attend its shareholders meetings. Most of Arsenal fans are in England, Africa, North America, and Asian countries.

Arsenal has around 37 million followers on Facebook, 17.5 million on Instagram, and 15.7 million on Twitter. Some famous people and celebrities who are Arsenal fans include Fidel Castro (Cuban communist leader), Elizabeth II (the queen of England), Jay-Z (American musician and song writer), Piers Morgan (English TV personality), Dido (English singer and song writer), David Gilmour and Roger Waters (the guitarist and the bassist of Pink Floyd rock band). And the most notorious terrorist in the world, Osama Bin Ladin, was also an Arsenal fan.

Manchester City

Since Manchester City moved to their new stadium, City of Manchester Stadium, in 2003, the number of attendances has increased quickly. And now the club is one of the top 5 clubs in England when it comes to average match attendances.

Some sources believe the number of City fans is more than 100 million while some others say it is only between 70 and 80 million. But it can’t be ignored that Man City’s fans are among the most loyal fans in the world. The City’s official fans club called MCFC Official Supporters’ Club has now over 240 branches with at least 19,000 members in many countries across the globe.

Paris Saint-Germain

Paris Saint-Germain is not the world’s most supported football club but in France, it is the most popular one with 22 percent of all the nation’s football fans being their supporters. This club has a fan base of 35 million. However, other sources claim that the number may be doubled: something around 70 million. In their first three years of formation, Paris Saint-Germain was a fan-owned club with around 15,000 members having paid an annual fee of 25 to 40 francs to hold up the club.

Unluckily, PSG fans have a long history of hooliganism with even one murder case in 2010 when a fan named Yann Lorence was killed in a clash with Marseille fans.

PSG has more than 40 million follewers on Facebook, 29 million on Instagaram, and 7.7 million on Twitter. Famous people including the former French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, former top Belarusian tennis player, Victoria Azarenka, and former NBA player, Tony Parker, and celebrities like US rapper, Tyga, Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, and Rihanna, are all PSG fans.

Liverpool

A study published in 2015 showed that Liverpool with 580 million supporters are the second football club after Manchester United having the highest number of supporters in the world. But real numbers may be different. Some other sources claim that the number is just more than 70 million. Liverpool also has 300 official fans clubs in more than 90 countries all around the world, according to their official website. Like PSG fans, Liverpool fans have a long history of hooliganism behind them, too.

Juventus

Juventus may not be the world’s most supported football club but according to the figure announced by Italian research agency Demos & Pi in 2016, it is surely the most supported club in Italy with 34 percent of all Italian football fans participating in their fan base. The number of Juventus fans has grown since 2016, so the number could be even higher now. It is said that the total number of Juventus fans is 300 million, including 41 million in Europe and 12 million in Italy.

However, some other sources show that the number of Juventus fans is 180 million all around the world. Whatever the number may be, it is sure that Juventus is one of the world’s most supported football clubs.

Bayern Munich

When it comes to fan membership, Bayern Munich is the most supported football club in Germany. Bayern has more than 293,000 supporters, according to a recent survey by statista.com. Some even claim that this team is the world’s most supported football club, concerning the number of its fan members. Whether it is true or not, they have people such as Pope Benedict XVI among their members. Considering that they have won 69% of all domestic titles in the current decade, it is no need to wonder they have attracted this number of members.

Unluckily, there is not much information about the total number of Bayern fans. We can only guess that by the number of followers the Bundesliga giant has on social media, though that is not a precise measure. The club has near 50 million followers on Facebook, more than 21 million on Instagram, and about 5 million on Twitter. According to a 2017 survey carried out by the club in North America, the Bavarians has supporters in all 50 US states with 43 percent of their fans being under 25 and 20 percent of them being female.

Manchester United

In 2013, Manchester United was announced to have had 659 million fans. However, many football pundits said this number was unrealistic and it should be something around 127 million. Whatever the number is, Man Utd has always valued their fans.

Around 400 celebrities and famous people support Man Utd, such as Brad Pitt (actor), Jamie Delgado (tennis player), Darren Campbell (athlete), Andy Goldstein (TV and radio presenter), Lex Luger (WWE wrestler), Jamie Moore (boxer), Kim Jong-un (North Korea leader), Shahrukh Khan (Indian actor), and Victoria Beckham (singer and the wife of David Beckham).

Man Utd have more than 72 million followers on Facebook, around 35 million on Instagram, and around 22 million on Twitter. They seem to be most popular on Facebook. There are more than 200 branches of the Red Devils’ Supporters Club in more than 23 countries around the world. They have also a customer base of 11 million including all fans who completed at least one financial transaction with the club.

Chelsea

Chelsea is one of the football teams with most fans in the world, having around 145 million fans around the world, although this number comes from no reliable source. The Blues have near 48 million followers on Facebook, around 22 million on Instagram, and 14.3 million on Twitter. It is said that most of Chelsea fans are plastic fans (or fake fans) whose support for a team is determined by merely the glories and the success a team has achieved rather than geography or family ties. If they see another team is more successful, they will change to support that team.

Chelsea fans are said to be plastic fans since the club’s fan base hugely grew overnight as in 2003, the club’s president, Roman Abramovich, pumped his billions into the club. However, not all Chelsea fans follow that rule since some celebrities and famous people have always been supporting the club, such as Bill Clinton (former US President), Bryan Adams (singer), Charlize Theron (Hollywood actress), Kevin Garnett (NmBA player), Will Ferrel (Hollywood actor), Lord Richard Attenborough (film director), and Gordon Ramsay (TV chef), who seem to love the team for just what they are.
