Each Championship club’s average AWAY attendance for 2022/23 – where do Bristol City, Sunderland and Cardiff City rank?


All average league away appearances in the eight-game league phase

Bristol City have made four trips during the Championship season, the same number of games staged at Ashton Gate.

Home support has grown with fans strongly backing Nigel Pearson, who has the club above his weight after eight games played so far this season.

The Robins sit in a respectable fourth place when it comes to home attendance with an average of 20,523.

For away games, however, it’s a different story with City just outside the relegation zone if there were to be a table on the aftermath of games played away from their home ground. .

Across the four away matches this season, an average of 816 has been recorded, making them one of seven teams to fall short of four figures.

There are factors to consider though, with many of their games being played away from the base with a cost of living crisis to contend with, while gas prices were high for a while for those who travel to games on the road.

For the season opener against Hull City, there was a railway strike which impacted how fans would travel to Humberside.

For the month of August and early September they made three trips to Lancashire; Wigan Athletic, Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers, which are expensive.

When football resumes next week, they face two more long trips with Norwich City to Carrow Road on Wednesday night, while their new home of Lancashire is the second trip after Norwich with City scheduled to play Burnley.

Sunderland and Burnley, who entered the league through promotion from League One and relegation from the Premier League, have the best away support in the league by a few hundred compared to other teams.

City’s Severnside rivals Cardiff City, who have exhausted their derby allocation, are just under 2,000 with other clubs not far short of their average of 1,918.
