Attendances over the last three seasons.

Recommended Posts

Thought I would do a litle research on attendances as I think the general perception on here from many (including myself) is that attendances are dwindling.

Considering that Hull KR and Bradford left our division to be replaced by Toronto and Barrow, one could argue that attendances have stayed relatively stable since 2016!

Is that supposed to be average home attendance? Must have been 2 or 3 massive attendances to have 3 seasons-worth of around 1100 averages....

Presumably these figures include those who are using the hospitality boxes, so perhaps whilst it looks a bit sparse on the open terracing/seated stands there are a considerable number "hidden" away out of sight.

Assuming the turnstiles are always working properly.

We always scan terraces and stands but boxes bars and board room can't be visible.

But do players tickets, sponsors and freebies get added up?

Well of course. However l applaud the Sheffield and London initiatives as both brought decent gates that brought people to our ground.

You can only work with the numbers given by any club.

Why not stevieb, people still had to go through the turnstiles which I believe is a legal requirement.

Why not? The attendance was the number of people there. Would you rather we just counted the 500 who might have turned up for a normal fixture against them?

Did we really. That's excellent and incredible.  On that basis I suggest we do free entry every game.👍👍

What's the derr for? 

It is a table of attendances. Where did l state it was about how much people paid to get in? There were that many through the gate. Why pretend there wasn't? Should we ignore the London attendance because it was discounted too?
