What would it take to get us back to say 3 million. Wigan had a record league average I understand of around 20,000 in the early 1950s. Although averages in SL may have dropped a bit the total attendances with two extra clubs has gone up I think. If we eventually arrived at a European SL of say 18 clubs would that be the catalyst.
If the comp had 20 sides with average crowds of 12,000 playing 25 matches I think that comes to 3 million. Take some doing.

My interpretation is they are just for league competitions.
