Sheffield Wednesday attendance ranking compared to Leeds United, Sunderland and Championship rivals

The Owls headed into this current international break not only without a league win but also without a manager following the sacking last week of Xisco Munoz

Even when Sheffield Wednesday isn’t playing to the expected levels on the pitch, the club’s support is always guaranteed.

As if more evidence were required, the club revealed last week that all of the tickets for the later-in-the-month trip to Watford were sold out. 2,104 tickets were promptly reserved for the match at Vicarage Road on October 21.

Even though the team is in the relegation zone, the average attendance of the fan base is aiming for a play-off spot. With 25,770 as of this term’s halfway point, the Owls are sixth in the rankings for highest average attendance.

Wednesday have had six home games so far with the highest turnout being the opening night crowd of 28,558 against Southampton. The lowest number for a league game at S6 was the 22,975 that turned up for a midweek match with Middlesbrough.Sunderland are by far and away the leaders in terms of average home attendances in the second tier. The Stadium of Light has seen, on average, 41,640 people rock up on matchdays. That is top by some distance with Leeds (35,338) and Leicester (31,387) making up the top three.

Wednesdayites have some fair treks to come in the next few months. After the Watford clash, following the international break, the Owls make the mammoth trip to Plymouth Argyle on Wednesday, October 25.

Another long journey awaits them on Saturday, November 4 when they trek to Bristol City. And for good measure the fixture computer has thrown out another long-distance trip on a Wednesday night before the year is out. The Owls will travel to Norwich on Wednesday, December 13.
