How does it compare?

How Nottingham Forest’s average attendance this season compare to recent seasons

Published

on

Nottingham Forest have enjoyed a remarkable run under Steve Cooper, with the win at Fulham last night meaning automatic promotion is still a possibility.

The fact the Reds have even confirmed a play-off place is astonishing when you consider where the team where when the 42-year-old was appointed.

However, the former Swansea chief has galvanised the players and that has had a knock-on effect with the fans. The City Ground has been packed out recently, with the fact Forest are averaging just over 27,000 this season showing how the support are fully on board with what they’re seeing, with that figure only bettered by Sheffield United in the second tier.

Of course, Forest are one of the biggest clubs in the league, so the fans are always quick to get behind the team, particularly if they’re successful.

Yet, as Transfermarkt shows, the average attendance has fluctuated over the years, with the 18/19 campaign bringing a recent high of over 28,000, whilst it fell below the 20,000 mark during the 15/16 season.

In fairness, the Forest support have been through a lot since the club were relegated from the Premier League over 20 years ago, which included dropping down to the third tier.

Can you name which club Nottingham Forest signed these 25 non-British players from?

So, nobody can dispute the loyalty of the core support that have still gone to the City Ground even if most of the time they have had to see a struggling team that’s underachieved.

Now though, there is a real momentum with what Cooper is trying to achieve and the fan base are delighted with the football the team are playing.

You would expect that no matter what happens in the coming weeks, the first full season under the manager is going to have Forest fans selling out their famous old stadium regularly as they prepare for an exciting era under Cooper.
