There's some great attendances in the NL. I remember when Pompey almost folded and we was all worrying about going into the NL. I'm glad we never did as there are so many ex league clubs in there its going to be a nightmare to get out of.

It would have been absolute carnage had Portsmouth folded. No way would you have gone straight in at this level, so it would have been genuinely fascinating to see what happens when thousands of Pompey fans turn up to stand around fields and watch whatever level football every week.

They'd have 10k fans locked out at Havant & Waterlooville.

Similar to the 10k fans we had locked out of Edgeley Park on Saturday.

It would have been funny to see Pompey traipse around the Wessex League and take several thousand fans to a fenced off field in the New Forest or the Hampshire Downs.

Not sure what our average is but the 2 Saturday home games we've had with next to no away fans we have had 5.2/5.3k which is pretty decent I think.

If we're up there when the big boys come to town we will get 8k+ in for the likes of Grimsby, Notts County and Stockport. Shame Wrexham is a Tuesday night both home and away but would imagine it would still be a decent gate

We're heading towards a sell-out. There'll definitely be over 8000 there so yeah, a good gate.

How many are you bringing?

I wouldn't have thought that many mid week, maybe 500-600 but that's just a pluck out of mid air number. any idea what our allocation is?

What's your away allocation? Can't remember if we'd sold out that time we had you on the opening day in League 2 not too long ago? Think we took about 2,000 to 2,500? We're at yours 2nd April, if we're both up there that will be a big match. Just noticed you've got Stockport at home in May too!

About 2000, depending on if we cover off the front 3 rows of the stand like we have done recently due to pitch invasions from our own fans.

We've sold about 400 so far so I reckon 600 probably.

Ugh, they're bound to cover those up vs us then, there's history of that between us and you! Might be a mad scramble for tickets if we're still up in the mix at that point.

It should be our first 9000+ gate of the season. On the ticket website there seems to be only a handful of tickets for sale to home fans, so a home sell out today.Chesterfield have been given 1000 tickets so depending how many tickets they sell will effect how big the attendance is

That's solid numbers on a Tuesday night.

Top and bottom holds 1100 in total.

If we’ve been given 1000 our ticket site says 520 left as things stand

It was 2650 and pretty sure it sold out, about the only positive thing to come from Slade’s second stint was that game.
I remember walking back to the car after the game thinking that us and Chesterfield would both definitely be top 7 that year. :lol:

So an easy start and all the big teams at home late on, when did Rishi Sunak become fixture secretary.
