Police were forced to arrest more supporters of Aston Villa than any other club in the region during last season.
But the total number of arrests went down this year, suggesting incidents of hooliganism have dropped.
Figures published by the Home Office show that police arrested 77 Villa fans in the 2008-9 season.
Most of these were for alcohol-related offences, but the figures include 19 arrests for public disorder and one for violent disorder.
Villa had the worst record for arrests of any West Midlands club this year. There were 69 arrests of Birmingham City fans, including 30 for public disorder and ten for violent disorder.
But both clubs experienced less trouble than last year, the figures suggest.
In the 2007-8 season, police arrested 97 Villa fans and 98 fans of Blues.
There were also 61 arrests of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans this year and 36 arrests of Coventry fans.
Police arrested 36 Coventry City fans and six Walsall fans.
The figures include arrests at both home and away matches, at games for any league or competition the club took part in during the year.
Across the country, there were 3,752 arrests connected to football matches. It meant just one fan in ten thousand was arrested during the year.
There were no arrests at all at the majority of matches, 67 per cent of games.
Policing Minister David Hanson said: “Hooligans once blighted our national game, but we now set an example for the rest of the world in how we police football matches.
“I am pleased with the way clubs and police work together, but we must also praise fans for realising violence has no place in the modern game.
“We are not complacent and will carry on working to ensure this success story continues into the future.”
