Best Answer

Its one of the biggest in the country. Sunderland have averaged attendances of over 40,000 since they were promoted to the top flight in 2007. In the early 2000's attendances were as high as 48,000, however the grim economic situation in the North East means many struggle to make to afford paying the prices Premier League football clubs charge their fans.

Why is Sunderland's fanbase so large? The most obvious answer is that in the whole of the North East of England which has a population of about 2.5 million, there are only two big clubs, Sunderland and Newcastle, therefore both teams enjoy large passionate followings.
