For those of us that are interested in play off finals attendances, here are the crowds for all the finals:


2003 Dagenham & Redbridge  2–3  Doncaster Rovers,  Britannia Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent  13,092

2004  Aldershot Town  1–1   Shrewsbury Town, Britannia Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent   19,216

2005  Stevenage Borough  0–1  Carlisle United  Britannia Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent  : 13,422

2006  Halifax Town  2–3     Hereford United  Walkers Stadium, Leicester   15,499

2007  Exeter City 1–2  Morecambe Wembley Stadium, London   40,043

2008  Cambridge United  0–1     Exeter City  Wembley Stadium, London : 42,511

2009  Cambridge United  0–2     Torquay United  Wembley Stadium, London : 35,089

2010  Oxford United  3–1 York City  Wembley Stadium, London   42,669

2011  AFC Wimbledon  0–0 Luton Town  City of Manchester Stadium, Manchester  18,195

2012  Luton Town   1–2     York City  Wembley Stadium, London   39,265

2013  Wrexham  0–2  Newport County  Wembley Stadium, London   16,346

2014  Cambridge United  2–1 Gateshead Wembley Stadium, London  19,613


I think Town & Rovers will easily break the record of 42,669. In fact Rovers on their own could take that many, plus what we take.

I really can't see that Bristol Rovers could expect to take 40,000+ !

Ditto. Bristol Rovers took 40k last time although that was in a division above and the first play-off final at the new Wembley. So I reckon we will see around 10k less this time from that. I think it will be around 30k from them and 16k-20k from us.

You wouldnt pay £150 to see your team possibly promoted to  the FL?

Spread the cost over 12 months= £3 a week, Cancel your Tv package for the summer? There must be savings you could easily make to allow you to make the trip?

Easy for others to say but there are some things that are hard to put a price on. The first time we played at Wembley with 30,000 town fans was something those present never forget, similarly, to be there when we hopefully return to the football league will be something you and your lad will be able to share the rest of your lives. If you can make those sacrifices and get yourself to Wembley. The more of us that make it the better chance we have.

only an uneducated guess but 35k from Bristol, 18k from Town and 9k in the neutral area would make 62000

That for a non league game is unbelievable and higher that last years Champions League final!!!!

The other thing of note is that the Wembley attendances are twice those played on league grounds. Contradicts what some say about playing them on big club grounds rather than at Wembley.
