Attendance: 18 per cent rise in average attendance at Roots Hall

6 May 2014

Thanks for your fantastic support during the regular season

Attendances at Roots Hall rose by 18% for the 2013-14 season from the previous campaign.

The average attendance at Roots Hall this term was 5,959 compared to 5,034 the season before.

During the 2011-12 campaign, in which Blues narrowly missed out on automatic promotion, the figure was almost identical to this term.

Our highest attendance of the campaign was against York City, when 9,018 were at Roots Hall to see Blues win 2-1.

Other impressive attendances included 7,627 for the AFC Wimbledon game, 7,736 against Portsmouth on New Year’s Day and 7,055 for Plymouth Argyle to open the season.

Chief Executive Steve Kavanagh said: “It is great to see our average attendance has risen by a substantial figure this season, and I’d like to thank everyone for their support.

“We’ve had some memorable games at Roots Hall this season, including when we had over 9,000 for York City and Portsmouth on New Year’s Day.

“There’s still one game left at Roots Hall and that is the play-off semi-final second-leg against Burton Albion, and it’d be great to pack out Roots Hall.

“We had over 10,000 for the game against Hull City in the FA Cup, and it’d be great to reach that figure, or more, again this time.

“Season Cards are now off sale until we know what division we will be playing in next season, but thank you to everyone who has already purchased one.

“Once they go back on sale, it’d be great to see as many people as possible purchase one, to ensure we can look to improve attendance figures again next season.”
