Danish Superliga club FC København has revealed that it is on track to beat its record average attendance.

As Denmark’s league embarks on its winter break, FC København has so far welcomed an average of almost 27,000 supporters for each match at Parken Stadium (the Park). The average attendance for Superliga and UEFA Champions League football amounted to 28,204 while the Superliga individually drew an average of 26,998 fans.

Champions League football at the Park drew an individual average of 32,063.

The club also revealed that none of its home attendances have drawn less than 20,000 fans for the first time in the club’s history.

Director Jacob Lauesen said: “It is part of our strategy that we want to create even more FC Copenhageners and create even better experiences in the Park.

“The figures show that we are on the right track. More and more FC Copenhageners are coming and therefore more and more spectators to our matches. It’s a fantastically positive development that we’re constantly trying to build on in collaboration with our fans and partners as well as in everyday life at the office.”

Lauesen added: “Just as the number of spectators has grown, the number of season tickets and subscribers has grown significantly. We are proud of that, but we also humbly approach the task of creating even better and greater experiences, so that even more people will want to come to the Park to see FC København.”

Last season’s average amounted to 24,626 in the Superliga, with the club hoping that the attendances continue in the spring to beat the record.
