AS Monaco among Ligue 1's best away fans

AS Monaco among Ligue 1's best away fans
Regularly present in large numbers in the visiting stands, the supporters of the Rouge et Blanc allow the Principality club to take pride of place among the top five best-supported Ligue 1 teams on their travels.

Everywhere and always! This is not just a slogan or empty words, but reality. AS Monaco can alwasy count on the presence of many fans away from home, and that’s a fact. Strasbourg, Paris, Reims, Montpellier, Lille, Toulouse, Auxerre, Marseille… Each match has seen the most loyal supporters of Philippe Clement’s side by the hundreds in the visiting stands of all the Ligue 1 stadiums this season.

An average of more than 500 supporters

Like every year, the Club is thus showing its national appeal, when it comes to cheerin on the Rouge et Blanc, even abroad in European play. So much so that the eight-time French champion ranks among the top five of the most-followed teams away from home since the start of the season. Indeed, according to figures recently published by the LFP, AS Monaco attracts on average more than 500 Club supporters away from home (509).

Fifth-best away attendance

C’est tout simplement la cinquième la plus haute de l’élite, derrière le RC Lens (861), l’Olympique de Marseille (776), le Paris Saint-Germain (759) et au coude à coude avec l’AJ Auxerre (510). Une statistique qui prouve encore une fois que les coéquipiers de Wissam Ben Yedder sont systématiquement poussés hors de leurs bases, ce qui explique en partie les (très) bons résultats de l’équipe à l’extérieur cette saison.

It is important to have more and more fans in the stadium. On the road there are always a lot of fans and that gives the players extra motivation to get results. It is very important to them; these are things that can be decisive in the outcome of a match.

Close to 5000 supporters in the season’s first half

At mid-season, i.e. after the trip to Lorient, 4,577 Monegasque supporters had already made at least one trip since the start of the league season. This, too is the fifth-best total in Ligue 1, ahead of teams like Olympique Lyonnais, Stade Rennais and LOSC. It’s relentless evidence of the impressive support enjoyed by those who wear la Diagonale everywhere in France.

Special mention also goes to the team’s trip to Reims just before the World Cup, which brought nearly 700 Rouge et Blanc supporters to Champagne. So congratulations to all and above all…DAGHE MUNEGU! 🇲🇨

Rise. Risk. Repeat.
