Taken from the BBC sport Website who have compiled it for a football doc. they are to air.
Attendances at professional sports events in the UK totalled almost 64m in 2011.
Football contributed more than 41m of the figure.
The figures -
41.2m watched football,
7m - horse racing and equestrian,
4.3m - rugby union,
3m - greyhound racing,
2.3m - cricket,
2.2m - rugby league,
1m - motorsport,
0.9m - tennis,
0.7m - golf,
1.3m - other sports.
Sixth most watched sport in UK in that year, seems an OK result to me.
