Division One

June 1, 2016

What size crowds might the EFL League One teams in the 2016/17 season attract?

The list below shows the Average HOME league crowd for each side from the division they were in in 2015/16.

The average HOME league crowd in Sky Bet League One last season was 7,165.

During the 2015/16 season the Average HOME league crowd in Sky Bet League Two was 4,881.

Wigan Athletic, (9,467), Burton Albion, (4,098) and Barnsley, (9,499) were promoted from League One.

Relegated were Doncaster Rovers, (6,500), Crewe, (4,551), Colchester United, (4,136) and Blackpool, (7,052).

Is it likely that the crowd totals for the EFL League One Division will be higher in the 2016/17 season?

Bramall Lane, the home of Sheffield United, has a capacity of over 32,000. This will be a key factor in ensuring that the Blades are once again favourites for promotion.
