All of England’s top 92 clubs across the Premier League and EFL have been ranked in order of average attendance.

Statistics show that more than a third of English football’s 20 largest average attendances are in the Championship.

Exeter City’s average attendance is 4,181, which places them eighth in League Two, while Plymouth Argyle’s average of 9,054 sees them fifth in League One.

Over the last decade or so, many of what were traditionally considered some of the country’s biggest clubs fell on hard times and tumbled down the divisions.

To their fans’ frustration, most of them are still down there while so-called smaller clubs have risen up to the top flight.

Fans of the fallen clubs are still turning out in large numbers though, to the extent that if you were to make up the Premier League simply based on no criteria other than average attendances, seven of its 20 clubs would be current Championship sides.

With an average crowd of 32,142 this season, Leeds United have the highest average attendance in the Championship and the 10th highest in the country, according to figures taken from worldfootball.net.

Aston Villa have the 14th highest average attendance in the country.

(29,472) while Sunderland have the 16th highest (28,438), Sheffield Wednesday the 17th highest (27,204), Wolves the 18th highest (26,477), Derby the 19th highest (26,157) and Sheffield United the 20th highest (26,108).
