United fans are top of the table when it comes to charity

Manchester United have won their opening football season skirmish with arch-rivals Man City, topping the first ever football ‘League of Giving’ for Britain’s most generous fans.

United fans, who endured narrowly losing the Premiership title to City at the end of last season, trumped their rival supporters to the title in a nationwide poll to find the ‘League of Giving’ commissioned by the Charities Aid Foundation, which promotes charitable giving and provides financial services and social finance to not-for-profit organisations.

The poll of more than 1,000 Premier League fans saw Arsenal at number 18 ahead of Swansea and Stoke, while their north London rival Spurs landed in third spot. London giants Chelsea, meanwhile, were left in ninth place, according to the poll of 1,067 Premiership fans.

Researchers asked fans of all 20 teams in the Premiership how much they give to charity in a month.

Overall, fans gave an average of £15 a month. But Manchester United fans topped the table giving away more than £30 a month to charity above the £27.78 donated each month by Manchester City supporters.

Tottenham Hotspur supporters sit third in the league with fans each giving nearly £23 a month to charity.
