2022-23 EFL League Two [4th division] – Location-map, with 2021-22 attendance.
The map here is a new template, one which I will have for the top 4 divisions in England this year. The map is a basic location-map, with inset maps of both Greater London and Greater Manchester. Also shown are small labels which point out the two promoted clubs (Stockport County, and Grimsby Town). And here is the part that makes this a new template: there is an attendance chart.

The attendance chart shows 5 things for each of the 24 current League Two clubs…A) 2021-22 finish (with relegations and promotions noted). B) 2021-22 average attendance [from home league matches]. C) Stadium capacity [2021-22]. D) Percent-capacity [2021-22]. E) Last time club had higher attendance [than 2021-22]. I added that last column (last time club had higher attendance), because last season there were a lot of clubs in the lower Football League and in non-League football that saw notable attendance increases. As far as current League Two sides go, 3 clubs saw all-time-best average attendances last season: AFC Wimbledon (at 7.7-K-per-game, in their new ground, and despite being relegated); Harrogate Town (at 2.3-K-per-game, in their 3rd season in the Football League); and Sutton United (at 3.0-K-per-game, in their first-ever season in the Football League). And a few clubs saw their best crowds in many years: Barrow AFC had their best attendance since 1969-70 (at 3.2-K-per-game); Newport County had their best attendance since 1983-84 (at 3.9-K-per-game); Stockport County had their best attendance since 1999-2000 [when they were a 2nd-division club], at 7.0-K-per-game; and Grimsby Town had their best attendance since 2002-03 [when they were a 2nd-division club], at 5.7-K-per-game. The last two clubs, as mentioned, were the two clubs promoted to the 4th division last season, and illustrations for them both can be seen below.
