SEASONS ATTENDANCE RECORDS

This is a list of each season's highest home attendance, along with the team that visited The City Ground each year.
Interestingly, the League record in the last 10 or so years has seen either Derby or Leeds bringing in the biggest home crowd, with just Ipswich breaking the streak

Note: The 2020-21 season saw no home support due to Covid issues and there are several seasons where we didn't play any home cup games. For the seasons where we played only one cup game at home, that game is listed as the highest cup attendance for that season.
