Thought we may as well have another thread that can descend into a who spends the most bickerfest.

Overall attendances for the AP were up 5%, despite London Welsh attracting 50k less punters to the Kassam vs Worcester in 13/14.

Five clubs were operating at greater than 90% capacity, whilst Bath and Exeter averaged higher than last season's capacity.

Tigers and Saints will have increased capacities next season while Exeter have plans in place to further increase should need arise.

I think the Falcons should be applauded for increasing attendance despite no real improvement on results. Performances, but not results. They've had at least one 9k attendance, and I'm pretty sure the last few games have been over 7k.

Where is the Wembley game between Quins and Saracens? I'm asking because I thought the Stoop was only 14,800 capacity, and Allianz 10,000.

Modest ups and downs (with Leicester and Saracens both down a little, LI down by 12K) and Wasps making a huge difference

Saracens hosted one game at Wembley, Quins at the Stoop. Both are included in the total ground capacity and attendance. So Sarries are 9@10k and 1@90k, Quins 10@14.8k and 1@82k

But if you improve performances, and show genuine determination to improve then your fans will support you. I've gone through the thick and thin for years...when we showed zero ambition and zero performances. Trust me standing in the open in the middle of winter in Newcastle is bad enough without having to watch utter tripe.

Dean Richards and our Chairman are doing things right...and they're bringing through the quality young local lads aswell...to keep the interest up.

I agree with that for Falcons, when I lived back home on Tyneside I would go and watch that tripe too. My point is I don't believe attendances would go up in many places with no on-field results to show for it. A lot of teams crow about great supporters but its much easier to have fans when you win. A lot harder to win fans when you're not.

And thanks LondonTiger - that makes sense.

If the results aren't going your way you can attract fans by playing attractive rugby and by bringing through local talent. Falcons have done that we'll this year as opposed to say Tigers who are televised often, have been playing cack and have not seen any academy players burst through into the first team.

Locally (Reading) at the Madstad, I hope Irish can plug their attendance hole, nationally I wonder if they'll be a post world cup bounce?
