Our poll on the least popular kick-off times among supporters is done with more than 4,500 votes cast - and the clear winner/loser is Monday night with a whopping 49% of the vote.

#MNF #gegenmontagsspiele
The early Saturday kick-off came second with 25% of the vote but Monday nights are uniquely unpopular for obvious reasons:

Unsociable time for families, time off work required, huge distances to cover often with no public transport. Flat atmosphere. List goes on.
This reflects what we've seen in other countries. Back in 2019 La Liga saw an almost 13% average drop-off rate in attendances when fixtures were moved to Monday night kick-offs.
In one stand out example, just 14,328 fans turned up to the Estadi Cornellà-El to see Espanyol against Athletic Bilbao – a drop-off of 31.7% compared to their attendances at Saturday and Sunday games.
Germany of course is the starkest example of Monday night's unpopularity via “Gegen Montagsspiele” protests - when the Bundesliga and TV companies ditched Monday nights from their broadcast packages completely.

Background on that here:… #GegenMontagsspiele
