Tranmere’s support has once again been outstanding this season, with the average attendance ahead of many League One clubs, including Bury, Oldham Athletic and Walsall.
The support offered to Micky Mellon’s team this season has been incredible once again. Despite being in the National League for a third successive year, and suffering a nightmare start following last season’s play-off heartache, the Super White Army has been unwavering in its loyalty.
The figures put many clubs that are one, and even two, divisions higher to shame, demonstrating the significant potential the club has.
Averaging 5,175 at Prenton Park, Tranmere’s average attendance is higher than any other club at this level, Wrexham the only team that come close. Leyton Orient are in third spot, nearly 1,000 down on Rovers.
As mentioned, when compared against clubs in higher divisions, Rovers’ average also stacks up favourably.
Only six clubs in League Two boast higher averages, with Coventry, Lincoln and Luton leading the way all having averages over 8,000.
The average attendance at Prenton Park this season is also better than eight clubs in League One, with the likes of Walsall, Oldham, Bury and Blackpool all being significantly lower than Tranmere. Some things never change.
Away from home, Rovers have also been superbly supported as well, with Saturday’s trip to Halifax seeing well over 1,000 Tranmere fans in attendance.
Incredible support from the SWA once again – let’s hope it’s rewarded with a trip to Wembley and, subsequently, promotion.
