Manchester United have topped a "League of Giving" for football fans.

United supporters, who endured narrowly losing the Premier League title to arch rivals Manchester City at the end of last season, trumped their rivals in a nationwide poll commissioned by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), which promotes charitable giving.

The poll of more than 1,000 fans of Premier League clubs saw Arsenal at number 18 ahead of Swansea and Stoke, while north London rival Spurs landed in third spot.

Researchers asked fans of all 20 teams 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 £30.03 a month to charity, above the £27.78 donated each month by Manchester City supporters.

Richard Harrison, CAF director of research, said: "The fact that football fans give £15 a month to good causes is excellent news for charity.

"While all the pre-season talk has been about huge transfer fees and mammoth wages, it's great to know that fans care about good causes as well as the action on the pitch."
