Social media giants Twitter have done a wonderful study aiming to determine each Premier League club’s global support by way of various twitter accounts.
As the Premier League recently became a £5bn industry following the eye-watering TV rights deal agreed in February (via BBC), the global support has solidified its standing as the most entertaining league in the world.
Arsenal transfer news
Arsenal, alongside the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool travel the world every year to expand their brand and according to the graphics, the long miles are starting to bear fruit.
Manchester United dominate in countries such as India and Pakistan, but our recent trips to Southeast Asia have told as our fanbase dominates in Japan, South Korea and Philippines. Our trip to Singapore this summer for the Barclays Asia Trophy will no doubt increase our fanbase in the region.
In London however, we remain the kings of the capital despite the emergence of Chelsea in recent years and Spurs’ constant presence in our shadows.
Having won 13 league titles and 11 FA Cups with another final looming, we look well set-up to continuously grow and dominate all markets.
The graphic below shows where Arsenal fans are located, eliminating our rivals from this specific map. Outside of the UK, it is interesting to see the presence of Gooners in Northern Europe which could be down to the legendary players that have graced our clubs such as Swede star Freddie Ljungberg.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, we are also the most popular Premier League club in Germany – the country of Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez’s Chile, and France – the origin of numerous Arsenal signings over the years.
