Town finish ninth in Championship crowds
IPSWICH Town have finished ninth in the list of average attendances in last season’s Championship.
The Blues’ 23 home league games last season saw more than 450,000 come through the turnstiles with an average crowd at Portman Road of 19,614.
This was more than 2,000 over the league average but still fell well short of table-toppers Leeds United (average crowd 27,299), Derby County (26,022) and Norwich City (25,386).
Even Sheffield United, who were relegated to League One, enjoyed better crowds than Ipswich although champions QPR were 14th in the list.
Town’s biggest crowd of the season was 29,258 for the 5-1 hammering by Norwich, while just 16,728 saw December’s farcical 3-0 win against Leicester City in a match dominated by heavy snow.
