Final Championship attendance table shows biggest fanbases from Birmingham City, Norwich, Plymouth and rivals

Birmingham City have backed their team to the best of their ability over the course of the 2023/24 Championship season.

Birmingham City's 2023/24 season ended at St Andrew's with the fans helpless in preventing their team from being relegated.

Blues defeated Norwich City 1-0 on the final day of the season, but Paik Seung-ho's first goal in English football wasn't enough as Birmingham finished 22nd, after entering the final day in that position. Plymouth Argyle, Sheffield Wednesday and Blackburn Rovers all registered victories when they needed to and so Birmingham for the first time in 30 years will have to play outside of the top two tiers of English football.

Birmingham saw a crowd of 27,680 on the final day of the campaign with 2,201 away supporters. It was the second highest attendance of the campaign with 27,749 present for the 2-1 win over Sunderland in mid-February. At the opposite end of the spectrum, smallest crowd was when only 15,944 came for a midweek win against Huddersfield Town, which had them in and around the play-off places.

Knighthead and Tom Wagner revealed grand plans for a new stadium, despite their relegation battle and Birmingham fans have proven they can fill their ground when they are needed. Ground improvements will continue to take place at St Andrew’s, and next season there could be a few more in attendance as they face teams they haven’t for a couple of years.

With the Championship season now over and with only the play-offs to take place, we take a look at where Birmingham City, along with the likes of Norwich City, Plymouth and the other teams rank.
