Not a bad. Definitely a summer venue so should do better when the weather picks up.

I thought Shamrock Rovers (as the worlds biggest club) could muster more than 4500 home fans. Not as big as they think LOL

Sport For Business - with an unusal angle on attendances 


Watching Irish Soccer

Posted on March 6, 2017

Shamrock Rovers’ biggest attendance since 2011 turned out for their first home game of the season against Bohemians on Friday night.

The SSE Airtricity League often gets criticised for small crowds but everything is relative.

Take the respective populations of the Republic of Ireland and England into account and you see a different picture.

We have multiplied this weekend’s attendance at the Premier League games and multiplied them by a factor of 11.7 to reflect the different populations and this is where each of the 12 teams in the SSE Airticity Premier League compares to their English colleagues.

1 Manchester Utd 75,291
1 Shamrock Rovers 61,074
2 Arsenal 59,988
3 West Ham Utd 56,967
2 Dundalk 55,528
4 Manchester City 54,047
5 Liverpool 52,984
6 Sunderland 41,592
7 Chelsea 41,521
3 Cork City 39,019
8 Everton 38,450
9 Leicester City 31,939
10 Tottenham 31,526
11 Southampton 30,734
12 Middlesbrough 30,484
4 Limerick FC 27,576
13 Stoke City 26,894
5 Bohemians 25,389
14 Crystal Palace 25,049
6 Sligo Rovers 25,014
7 Galway City 24,722
15 West Bromwich 23,418
8 Derry City 23,400
9 Finn Harps 21,586
16 Hull City 20,599
17 Swansea City 20,584
18 Watford 20,543
19 Burnley 20,336
10 St Pats 20,147
11 Bray Wanderers 13,068
12 Drogheda United 11,934
20 Bournemouth 11,172

We realise it doesn’t really mean much but population does matter and for the Irish clubs to feature so favourably on a comparative League table is worth bearing in mind before leaping to criticism.

Back in reality, appalling crowd from City, first home game of the season for league runner's-up and cup winners and the ground is half empty.

Half the county was flooded and the game was in doubt all day , good crowd in those circumstances with many bigger crowds to come from the best supported team in the league

Half the county? I think that would be classified as biblical. The weather had an effect but given people still made it to the game from 30 and 40 miles away I think it is appalling, as is the case with most attendances.

If the biggest derby in Irish football in an area with a population of around a million and a people can't sell out a 6k stadium at the start of the season then something is wrong. 
I'm not having a dig at you here Bronze, but I think that problem is expectations are so low. Everywhere there are comments calling it a good attendance when anything less than a full house should be seen as a disaster.

Dundalk 1 in every 7.97 people attended our first home game
Cork 1 in every 35.75 people attended their first home game

But you keep telling yourself Cork have the best support, For a City your size, you should easily be getting more than 5000 every week

I think 5000 is conservative but you are correct.

Cheers to Bitored for the figures.

The thing is that we had that support when we were in the first division , That 1 in every 7.97 is nothing other than a band waggon statistic

I think that's a fair statement.
Its the same as the old "its a good LOI ground", which essentially means it wouldn't be up to standard in the majority of leagues around Europe but expectations are so low there`s no such thing as stadia requirements.
Every club in the PD should be averaging a minimum of 1k every week but we`re a long way from that.

Call it a bandwagon statistic all you like, the issue isn't with Dundalk and nor should it be, Cork airport is being kept open by fellas going to Liverpool, Manchester and London, the interest in football in Ireland is one of the highest in Europe and yet the ground sells out a handful of times a decade. That means that what ever is being done isn't good enough.

Bitored; It just appears that way to me, my first instinct when I saw the crowd was why didn't it sell-out? Most fans of Shamrock seemed to be delighted to have 'a big crowd', hopefully the people responsible didn't.

Lads out of interest why do ye think that attendances have been so low in recent year? 
With the standard of football getting better every year one would think that attendances would increase, especially the exposure the league got with Dundalks European run.

On top of this, what do you think clubs could be doing in order to increase attendances each week?
