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.
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.
