Premier League's most eco-friendly fan base revealed – where does your club rank? | The Sun

THE PREMIER League's most eco-friendly fanbase has been revealed, with several big-name clubs dropping down the table while smaller rivals overtake them.

Leicester City mirrored their 2016 heroics to top the league, with the greenest fanbase in English football.

They were joined in the eco-Champions League by Fulham, Tottenham and Brighton filling out the top four.

The remaining European qualification spots were taken by Liverpool and Manchester United, in a turnaround from their current fortunes on the pitch.

A survey of 100 fans from each club crowned The Foxes as league champions by asking each a range of green questions on everything from recycling habits to how they travel.

In a shock for some fans, though, three of the 'big six' sat in the middle of the table, with Arsenal ninth, Chelsea thirteenth and defending champions Manchester City tenth.
