Tuktuk Day 93


Many of you will remember Christian Obray’s Overview of the Rise and Rise of Non-League Football.
Here it is again.

Blackburn Rovers’ fan, Aidan Wilson recently added a survey to his final university thesis and a lot of you were kind enough to help him. Today it is the turn of Adam Kelly a Sheffield United fan at Sheffield University who again has a survey on why fans are leaving the top four divisions for Non-League Football. Or are they?

Attendances recently released by Statista show that 19 out of 20 clubs are running at 95% and several are 99%+ sold-out! As of March 20, 2024, Manchester United had the highest average attendance in the Premier League in the 2023/24 season, attracting crowds of around 73,523 to Old Trafford. Meanwhile, city rivals and Premier League champions Manchester City had an average attendance of 53,194. Sheffield United were over 30,000 but hover around 95% capacity. Impressive, though, for a club having such a disappointing season! Sorry, Adam!

Anyway, please help Adam out and complete his short and interesting survey here

A study exploring the rise in attendances in English non-league football. Participant Information 

This research aims to explore fan consumption of non-league football and the rise in attendances. Your participation in this study is voluntary; you can withdraw from the study up to two weeks after data collection and you can decide not to answer a particular question should you wish. Please see the link below for information on the study in full: participant information sheet

Now a plea:

Kindly remember that the purpose of this 90 day challenge is to raise funds for my local club and an equal amount for Prostate Cancer. As always, I HOPE you are all enjoying the tour of the UK and that you will consider a donation to support FC Deportivo Galicia and/or Prostate Cancer UK If everybody chipped in with just £1 I would easily hit my target of £10,000 and life would be easier in West London whilst the charity could continue their great work. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can.
