West Brom's attendances compared to Cardiff, Plymouth, Stoke City and other Championship rivals

The 2023/24 Championship regular season has drawn to a close with the play-offs to begin at the weekend.

West Brom finished off their 2023/24 Championship regular season in style as they beat Preston North End to book their place in the play-offs.

The Baggies went in to the day looking over their shoulder with Hull City waiting to pounce on any slip-up but that didn't come. Hull City had to beat Plymouth Argyle but they fell behind and then West Brom took the lead late in the first-half through Alex Mowatt. Hull didn't fight back and West Brom added two more goals through Kyle Bartley and Darnell Furlong.

Victory over Preston North End saw West Brom secure a fifth placed finish after Norwich City surprisingly lost to Birmingham City, and so Carlos Corberan's men will play Southampton over two legs before potentially meeting Leeds United or Norwich in the final. The first leg is at the Hawthorns and the match takes place this Sunday (May 12).

In their last match, North End had one of their biggest crowds of the season as a total of 25,386 supporters came through the turnstiles. The largest this season was the 25,409 for the 1-0 win over Leeds United in December. Sunday’s match has seen Southampton given 2,099 tickets so it looks like there will be another good attendance on Sunday. Home supporters can play their part when it comes to motivating their team and there should be another special atmosphere when the Baggies line up against the Saints.

With all 24 teams now playing their 23 home games, we can now look as to which team boasted the best support at their own stadium this season. Here we look at West Brom’s average of 24,057 and how it compares against the likes of Cardiff City, Plymouth Argyle, Stoke City and other teams.
