Attendances

Just wondering what people think about attendances. Are they good or should we be hoping for more people? Strange one as rugby attendances are never as big as football anyway and Pirates despite being a league up don't necessarily get loads more. 1,000 is now a normal gate for us. Suppose the question is whether we can get more in more often and it's how would it be achieved? Had winning rugby these last two seasons but no significant gate increase.

Writing this though am thinking we did get more in towards the end, ladies days etc so maybe more of this and it could become a norm perhaps.

If we get back to the championship I would expect crowds to increase.

I think Pirates average for last season was not much above ours.

The Pirates average attendance for home games last season was 1374 over the eleven league games.

....which compares to Albion's average of 1,122 over 15 home games.

Wikipedia indicates that the Pirate's average crowd last year was 1,520 over 11 home games.

Albion's average was better than 4 Chamionship sides (Ealing, Hartpury, Richmond and Rotherham) and just below Nottingham (1,136) and close to a few others.

I took my figures from the match reports for the home games off the Pirates official site, but anyway they weren't that good, not a lot of cash from match days. But of course there were also the cup match attendances to add on.

I think Championship clubs get around 600,000 from the RFU each season, so that must cover a lot of the wages.
What was our average crowd when we were last in that league about 2000?
I know at one time we were up about 2600.

In the 2014/15 season when we finished in last place, 10 points short of Moseley, we had a home gate of 1714 which was the 6th. best.
