12th Man

Refers to the fans and the atmosphere they create in the stadium.

While a team has 11 players on the field, passionate and vocal fans can provide an extra level of motivation, energy, and support that’s almost akin to having an additional player.

This “12th man” effect can particularly be felt in home games, where the home team’s supporters often greatly outnumber opposing team fans.
