The average attendance for a game in England's top flight was 35 975, up from 34 601 in 2011/12.

The official figures from the respective leagues show crowds have fluctuated across Europe, with Barcelona's average gate down by more than 9 000, an 11% drop.

Attendances at Inter Milan have fallen by more than 3 000, but new German champions Bayern Munich have seen an average increase of around 2 000.

In England, 16 of the 20 Premier League clubs increased their average attendance in 2012/13. The three largest rises were for the three clubs promoted from the Championship in 2012 - Reading, Southampton and West Ham - with Everton recording the next largest increase.

However, there have been warnings that these increases could be lost if English clubs do not reduce ticket prices.
