Let's see...
Coventry city - a league level football team.
Wasps, a Premiership rugby team.
Two football teams that play at our own ground,
a top level ice hockey team a very short walk away.
OK - a bit lacking on cricket, but as cricket isn't played at the same time of year as rugby it#'s really irrelevant.

Any other excuses for why so few people watch Nottingham rugby club? Ah yes - their population is lower than Coventyr - but both round to the 300,000.

Ok, lets go more in depth (for the pro teams)-

What Coventry Rugby compete with;
Wasps - Average Attendance around 15,000 - Ricoh Arena
Coventry City - Average Attendance less than 10,000 - Ricoh Arena
Coventry Blaze - Average Attendance around 2 - 3,000 - SkyDome Arena
Rememeber the Ricoh Arena is 4 Miles away from the Butts Park

What Nottingham Rugby have to compete with;
Nottingham Forest - Average Attendance around 30,000 - City Ground (Across the road from The Bay)
Notts County - Average Attendance just less than 10,000 - Meadow Lane (Across the river from The Bay)
Nottingham CCC - Average Attendance around 15,000 to T20 matches - Trent Bridge (Across the road from The Bay)
Notts Panthers - Average Attendance around 10,000 - Motorpoint Arena

So yes its pretty clear to see that Notts have to compete with a lot more than Cov do, and thats probably why Cov get higher attendances than Notts.
