shocking, but why would people turn up to see a game with no point? no relegation battle -just 2 poor teams playing for the sake of it, oh and on a sat evening as well when most people who still have a life have other plans.

I can think of a sport in another country , riddled with tragedy , a drug controversy overhanging not just the odd player but whole teams & training ethics , their best players going off on benders  the norm ,

oh and poor attendances .... http://tensport.com.au/news/newsarticles/Rugby-League-NRL-accepts-blame-for-City-Country-debacle.htm  4635 but people are fed a constant stream of positivity regarding the antipodean code , their journo's always promoting the up side of any story , their TV commentators concentrating on well ... commentating.

it's all about perception .

What is the lowest SL attendance? Anyone know

 

The crowd of 500 at Paris v Salford in 1997 would be about the lowest.

Interesting post - thanks. :rolleyes:

 

In tune with the original post - I note that our lowest SL attendance at Salford was this years "post meltdown" match against Hull KR, also on SKY, also a 6:45 KO! To be fair the Cas match had another 300 fans - a 15% improvement -  :lol:  :lol: - and we won both.

My glass is certainly half full today B)

I'm amazed at some of those to be honest.

 

Salford over 10k, Sheffield and London likewise.  As for the Huddersfield one at over 15k that's quite frankly staggering, which matches in which years were these and any reason why they were so high?

At a guess, the Salford one was the last game at The Willows.

That's impressive, I'd love to see them getting near that now.  If anything it shows what potential they have, although they've not shown much sign of tapping into it at Barton as yet.  I always loved The Willows.

The first rugby league match I ever saw was a relegation battle.

 

It was at Salford.  3pm on a Sunday.

 

Just under 2,000 there.

There were 11k at Wakefield for the relegation battle with Castleford.  The biggest crowd at Belle Vue in 20+ years.

I don't know, but it's better now.  I only posted it as a one off stat to balance your own.

Huddersfield might have either been the very first game in 1998 against Bradford or Leeds 2006 (edit: 2008), when they did a big push and cheap tickets for students, etc. I was there and in the top tier of the end. I think it was Ryan Hall's debut or very early in his career anyway.

 

Oh and the Bulls lowest is wrong, I believe that's taken from the Salford home game in 2011, when in fact it was just issued incorrectly in the press.

Fair enough.  Relegation battles and supposedly convenient kick off times aren't the solution when the only example that seems to exist of it generating decent gates is the one time it involved actual, proper local rivals having a winner-takes-all final match.

Thanks. Just to be clear, you are correct and checking the attendance should have been 12,487.

Bradford's lowest then is 6,217 against Catalans in August 2010.

The 12,301 high for London is a bit of a cheat, that was the official attendance for their home match against Huddersfield during the first season as Harlequins in 2006. But it was a doubleheader with the union Harlequins vs Leeds match first, one ticket covered both games but most people had already left before the league one kicked off.

London's next best attendance though is 10,014 against Wigan in 1996 at The Valley.

The Huddersfield highest attendance was their first round game against Leeds in 2008. And Sheffield's was for the visit of Bradford in 1997.

Interesting stuff. Can't exactly read much into it, but gives us something to chat about!

Many of the larger attendances for the smaller clubs came from very large away followings - Hudds and Sheffield being examples.

Interesting that Hull KR have the highest "lowest" crowd. Guessing the majority of the low crowds were generated pre-2000 when SL first started going.
