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
