England, 2nd Division: attendance update, November, 2007.

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:48 am


The League Championship is the second level of football (soccer) in England.  It is the 12th highest-drawing professional domestic league in the world.  Last season, the league averaged 18,221 per game.  However,  this season attendance is down over 10% .  The only non-promoted club with a significant gate increase is Wolverhampton.  The West Midlands-based club, which was last in the top flight 4 seasons ago,  have maintained a solid fanbase, and yet again are pushing for promotion.  They sit 5th in the table, which is a promotion play-off position  (first and second place win automatic promotion to the Premier League;  3rd through 6th place vie for the third promotion spot).   As the season progresses, and clubs become involved in both the push for promotion spots, and in the struggle to avoid relegation (the bottom three clubs), attendances will likely increase.
