How many will that equate to do you think?

Our capacity is a bit of a mystery and seems to constantly get reduced, so hard to tell.

Ipswich bought 2500 in 2021 when they had South Stand and South Habbin, so that's about 1100 in the terrace. But knock off 100 for the seats going in, so probably 1000, depending on what segregation they put at either end.

I’d guess at 950 away capacity (down from 1,475) with home capacity increased from the current 6,475 to about 6,850.

This season home seating sold out almost every game whereas there were always unsold terrace tickets, even for the derby against the Pish, so swapping 1,100 home terrace for 1,475 home seats is a no-brainer.

Most clubs are going that way, in giving home fans more and away fans less. Since COVID, there are some differences in attendances, which is always a good thing.

It's become a big talking point this past season at Whaddon Road. We give away fans the Hazelwoods Stand behind one goal, so 1,100. Bigger followings get another 400 or so of the Colin Farmer Stand.

The big issue is that we have been turning home fans away because our seats sell out very quickly. Instead of telling the bigger clubs to piss off as 1,100 is more than we have to give them, we've been hindering our own chances of getting home support.

That the away end has the best acoustics and even a couple of hundred fans comes across louder than the other three stands put together makes it all the worse.

Definitely a theme in the lower leagues at the moment, crowds are really on the up most places you look. Whether that’s dissatisfaction with the upper echelons of the sport, a post covid boom, who knows?

I’m quite excited about a sub-thousand away following being forced into an end of our worst terrace with some seats bolted on to meet the minimum EFL requirement. All we need to do is stick a big middle finger on top of the away entrance and I feel the welcome is complete….

Average Away Fans visiting stadiums in League 1. Most popular is Derby, followed by Reading and Bolton...

Raw Data for the above ...

Bolton saw 4 3,000+ away followings. On the flip side, both Peterbough and Portsmouth saw 2 <100 followings.

Not going to excite many, but Lincoln figures....more so for Luke Imp
Due to the great finish, only 10 home fans down on home average compared to last season...
Since being in League 1, away following visiting Sincil Bank have averaged high 700's/ low 800's (should increase next season with who we have lost/ gained)

Thanks Yeo. Honestly not bad numbers for us, our away following has never been brilliant and seems to be picking up, even in such an awful season.

With Derby and Pompey up, will be interesting to see how many bring 3k plus to The Valley. Looks like Orient were the only others this season

Three clubs often mentioned in the same breath. Don’t worry, we’ll be back to barely scraping 1,500 next season.

Our average for the last 4 home game was 9733 it was like the Cowleys era again, the buzz was definitely back around the ground and the fan village absolutely packed.

Playoff Semi Final 1st Leg

Barnsley 1-3 Bolton - 13,846 (2,163)

Frustrating that we couldn’t have a bigger allocation but still, brilliant night for those of us that managed to get tickets.

Why couldn't Barnsley give you the full stand?

Not entirely sure why but both clubs have given the exact same away allocation. The same thing happened last season. Barnsley just left half a stand empty, Bolton are selling tickets in the South stand lower to home supporters, Barnsley have not sold out the allocation yet. Bolton sold out in about 5 minutes. Spoke to a few Bolton season ticket holders who aren't going on Tuesday night. Strange as they have been all season and when it comes to the biggest match of the season so far they are giving it a miss.:ohm:. Will still get a good crowd in though.

Do Barnsley usually only give that amount? Noticed Derby had about 5000 but all the other teams you’d think who would take 3000+ seemed to play them on a Tuesday night.

We’re currently having a debate on our forum about an away points system as it’s got to the point now where demand is often higher than what we’re given and looking at some of the allocations in this league only think it’d be a problem for 5/6 games (Burton, Lincoln, Northampton, Cambridge, Stockport and Wales)

That’s providing our followings hold up now we’re more than likely going to be losing more than we win!

With a bit of luck you'll get us on a Tuesday night (as it means we will get the same) so anyone nuts enough to travel down for that would get maximum points.

Only seems like yesterday being there that night, but it is eight years since this wonderful night with Sir Mal Benning scoring a screamer, and with just 77 Staggies cheering us on.

We had the same discussions r.e. a loyalty system but a) it'll all settle down at some point, b) you get the long term fans moaning about the bandwagon'ers when they can't get a ticket and c) it's apparently difficult to incorporate that into a ticketing system (or at least it was with Ticketmaster for us).

As you say though, when people look at it properly, it's only a handful of games that you'd need them for and they're games who will always be popular ones anyway and sell-out.
