What’s With All The Empty Seats At The Bernabeu?

bernabeu-newReal Madrid are showing their displeasure with the reigns of Florentino Pérez and Rafa Benitez by staying away from the Santiago Bernabéu in droves.

A ticket to see Real Madrid play at the Bernabéu used to be the hardest ticket in town, but now fans can walk up at kickoff and get a great seat.

Madridista’s have been upset at the club since Perez unceromoniously dumped Iker Casillas this summer and the botched transfer of David de Gea from Manchester United did not help matters.

As a results after eleven home games, Los Blancos have only filled their stadium twice, against PSG and Barcelona.

Since that 4-0 Clásico defeat, Real Madrid’s average home attendance for the last three matches has been only 62,361. Considering that the capacity for the Bernabeu is 83,000 for La Liga games, a three quarters filled stadium has to terrify the Real Madrid board. There is nothing worse than an apathetic fan base.
