2019 Championship Attendances Are In

Recommended Posts

The fact that so many clubs went up and that overall the game attracted more fans than previous years indicates that the more traditional 'P&R' model is easier for the clubs to sell than the Super 8's concept ever was.

Whilst there are always other factors in play, the fact that arguably the whole game was better supported in 2019 vs 2018 definitely implies that some significant change to the competitions influenced this.  

Even for League 1, despite the competition average going down, the fact that 7 out of the 11 clubs that participated last year enjoyed growth is significantly positive.  Unfortunately for League 1, with Whitehaven (1,012 Avg) going up and a chance Newcastle (1,028 Avg) will join them, there is a high probability that the competition average will go down again next year as I would assume both Barrow and Rochdale's averages will take a hit, even if the other 9 clubs all enjoy YOY increases.

Yes and yes.

It takes wisdom to know when a discussion has run its course.

It takes reasonableness to end that discussion.
