They may be unlikely to reproduce their fairy tale footballing heroics of 2016, but Leicester City fans can take solace in the fact they’ve been crowned the greenest fan base in England.
A survey of 100 fans from each club in the top flight were asked a range of questions about their eco-friendly habits – from recycling and reducing energy waste to how they travel – in order to crown a sustainable champion.
But as The Foxes came out on top, Fulham, Tottenham and Brighton filled out the rest of the top four.
Rivals Liverpool and Manchester United grabbed the last two European qualification positions in the league.
However, it is mid-table mediocrity for some of the traditional ‘big six’ – as Arsenal, Manchester City, and Chelsea came ninth, tenth and thirteenth, respectively.
Facing the drop in the bottom three is Leeds, who prop up the table, Wolves and newly promoted Nottingham Forest.
Victoria Bacon, director at Smart Energy GB, which commissioned the league table, said: “This new eco league table shows how fans of the clubs in England’s top flight are performing based on their sustainable habits.
“Some have a lot to improve on, but many are going above and beyond to be green when watching the beautiful game.
“While there are a few fanbases who are staring down the barrel of relegation when it comes to their eco behaviour, there are easy changes they can make to steer clear of the drop zone.
“And something as simple as requesting a smart meter installation is just one way to help make a small difference to your carbon footprint and make the country greener as a whole.”
Fans across the country are even taking steps to be more eco-friendly while cheering on their teams, with recycling packaging from matchday refreshments proving the most popular action.
