Birmingham City’s average home attendance after best turnout in seven years - compared to West Brom, Coventry City and rivals

An updated look at the average home attendances for all 24 Sky Bet Championship clubs, throughout the 2023/24 season.

The mood at Birmingham City is at a renewed high following not only two successive wins in the Sky Bet Championship but also the highest home attendance in more than seven years.

St Andrew's @ Knighthead Park was absolutely bouncing on Saturday as Tony Mowbray got one over his old side Sunderland with a 2-1 comeback victory. Jack Clarke's first-half goal should have sent the Black Cats on their way but strikes from Jordan James and Koji Miyoshi completed a resilient turnaround for Birmingham.

A crowd of 27,449, the majority of which were kitted out in blue, roared Mowbray's men on to make it six points out of the last available six. It was superb to see St Andrew's @ Knighthead Park as buoyant as it should be, especially as the ground hasn't been so full in such a long time.

Supporters had been so frustrated at how long the stadium renovations took but new chairman Tom Wagner sped up the process. The Lower Tilton and Lower Kop have been completely revamped and reopened, meaning Blues are likely to see more sell-out crowds soon.

As that hasn't been the case for the season in its entirety, however, the average attendance is lower than campaigns gone by. Nonetheless, Blues fans have shown up in their droves through the thick and thin to see their team.

Here's how the average home Birmingham turnout looks for the 2023/24 season, as well as how it compares to the other 23 teams in the Championship.
