Leicester among football's top 20

Leicester City are a top 20 football club in terms of fans support according to the results of a survey published today.

Roy Morgan International single source findings list the Foxes as the UK's 14th best supported club with 553,000 followers.

Manchester United are best supported with over four million supporters.

Indeed Leicester are 12th best loved of English clubs because Scottish Premier League giants Rangers and Celtic are fifth and sixth in the popularity League.

The table puts Leicester ahead of EUFA Cup finalists Middlesbrough (16th) and Scottish Cup Holders Hearts (18th) but also ahead of Midlands rivals Wolves (19th).

553,000 does that mean how many fans went this/last season?

Very close. Leicester amassed 498891 fans in their 23 League matches last season at an average of 21,691 (or 66.7% of capacity). With Cup attendances of 47,657 that makes 546548 by my reckoning and there may have been other matches like the FA Youth Cup, Wsterby Cup final etc
