After a great season we are curently getting a rough average of 15000 at the Valley. What are we expecting next season in the Championship?

And what will the financial implications be ?

    Allowing for an increase for us and more away fans I will go for 18,000

    Would love to see 20k+ at home every week but I think thats optimistic.

    Who knows?

    In fact, no one flipping knows as none of us know who will be in the same division yet do we? If West Ham stay down it's a sell out, if Wigan go down they won't bring as many as QPR. If both Sheffield teams go up and do well there's another two sell outs but if it's Carlisle then it won't be.

    For crivens sake why can't we wait until the summer before speculating wildly on where we will finish and how many people will be there to watch it!

    More, importantly why am getting so irrationally wound up by these threads ;-)

    Average attendance for this season is currently nigh on 17k - this will likely rise to 17.5k based on the full or near full houses for the last 2 games.

    Think this season has been nearer 17,000 for home games (16,700 odd) and that will rise with the two that are left. One thing is for certain we will be number one in South London in respect of attendance, league position and after a few more days like Saturday away support to FACT (awaits stats from oohah to disprove this)

    Good question at the end. haha.

    I know its wild speculation, but who cares?? its exciting to be talking about a better division where we will get better attendances. We've just been promoted and people are excited to talk about the ifs and maybes of next season !!

    19k I would think, most clubs will bring over 1,000, and a lot will sell the Jimmy Seed out

    I like that phrase and I intend to use it this week.

    Our home attendances will average 19,500 next year.

    Let's not talk about our away following. (Whoops, I just did.)

    Fewer JPT cup games but same number of league games midweek I would guess.

    Plus all the FA Cup replays as we make it to Wembley the hard way : - )

    As we're not in rounds 1 and 2 of the FA Cup won't that give us a couple more free saturdays, so less need for midweeks?

    @Addicked2TheReds I'm just worried that we won't have anything to keep us occupied through the summer...apart from the signing of Messi, half the Spain squad, that big politcal scandal involving Nick Clegg and Samantha Cameron, The Euros and The Olympics.

    It's like reading poetry when you just reeled off those opposing team names.......rather than Bury, Rochdale, Chesterfield, Hartlepool

    Our away following will treble as no more northern crapholes!

    I like your sense of humour!

    The average will be about 19.5k i reckon, 24k for Leeds on a Saturday, 16k for Burnley on a Tuesday.
  • Options
    Won't we have more midweek games due to the international breaks
  • Options
    Leeds, Millwall, Palace & West Ham are the only clubs who would definately the sell out the JS.
  • Options
    We only once dropped below 20,000 last time in the championship, unless we have an even worse season than the last relegation one I can't see why this wouldn't be the same this time around.

    I predict there will be about actually 15,000 in the stadium by October though, depiste what the screen will say.

    Because in 2008/09 the then chief exec was issuing thousands of comps to make sure the gate was 20,000, perhaps?

    What about Brighton and the Sheff clubs if they both come up. It all depends if its a Sat or midweek
  • Options
    Ipswich always bring a good number too!

    Airman guestimated on another thread

    12k STs

    1.5k average away support

    3k average home walk up

    1.5k comps

    Which makes 18k

    There will be a number of variables biggest of all being how well we are performing but also who goes up or comes down (Wigan or QPR/West Ham or Middlesboro) and when the fixtures fall. Wolves on a Saturday could be 3k, midweek might be less.

    Oof!

    Well it'll be better than the past 3 years and that'll do me.

    Thinking back 3 years, i'm trying to remember which teams sold out the away end. I'm sure the likes of Watford and QPR didn't, whereas the midland teams like Forest and Leicester did, though I could be wrong.
    To an extent, there'll be 1st season excitement amongst ground spotters at the away end, starved of a decent South London game to go to for 3 years!
