'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Highest Crowds for Forty-Seven Years

Football League crowds are at a highest level since the 1959/60 season - with a total of more than 16.4m supporters attending games last season. This was a rise of 1.6% from the previous season.

This means that crowds have more than doubled in the last twenty years which confirms the Football League's position as the best attended sporting competition in Europe.

The League Chairman, Lord Mawhinney, said, 'It is very pleasing to be able to report that the crowds at League matches have risen for the fifth time in six seasons. These figures underline the tremendous commitment by the supporters and, on behalf of the clubs, I thank everyone that has attended matches.

'I am particularly pleased to be able to report that more than 300,000 young fans took advantage of ticket offers provided under the League's Fans of the Future initiative, which is aimed at getting young fans watching live football at their local League club.

'Our next challenge is to find ways to get the League's attendance figures past the seventeen million mark.'
