League sponsors Vanarama think next Saturday could mean big things for Notts County when they host AFC Fylde.
The club are offering cut-price tickets for the match - an idea geared towards thanking the local community and, of course, rewarding the club’s loyal fans following a very challenging summer.
But we at Vanarama have some stats to throw your way that may add an additional advantage to next weekend’s incredible ticket offer.
We’ve been digging around to find some stats to support some claims that this could be the biggest National League crowd ever.
The current record is held by Bristol Rovers, who attracted an impressive 11,085 to their match against Alfreton in April 2015 - the highest league-game crowd outside the EFL to date.
Can Notts do it next weekend with their AFC123 initiative? We think it's more than a possibility.
It’s not the first time the club have slashed prices. Over 15,000 turned out to watch their side in action against Cambridge United in January and in excess of 17,000 saw the game against Crewe the season before.
So before the poor turnstiles operators bill the Magpies for all the extra work they’ll be putting in, let’s have a look at the current state of play with the division’s attendance table.
Notts lead the way with an average of 5,100 watching the team at Meadow Lane - that is sure to be shoot up after next weekend.
The club are currently only 224 fans in front of Wrexham in second, the Dragons not helping their cause to be called the best supported club in the division by taking so many fans to Meadow Lane a few weeks ago!
In third are Stockport County, who are watched on average by 4,409, with Chesterfield’s slow start putting fans off - 3,888 see their games on average so far.
Sponsors Vanarama have recently launched the Club Reward scheme to help fans back their club’s budget. Every time a fan takes out a brand new van lease with Vanarama or a brand new car lease with Motorama their club will earn £100 and you will receive £30 cashback!
