Hull City transfer news recap – Nigel Adkins latest and Championship updates


How Hull City’s record-low home attendances compared to the likes of Leeds United and Aston Villa

During the 2018/19 Championship season, Hull City experienced their lowest average crowds for a league campaign since moving to the KCOM Stadium in 2003.

A mere 12,164 fans were in attendance on average across the Tigers’ 23 home matches in the Championship, with the lowest coming against Millwall during a 2-1 victory in February, witnessed by only 10,191 spectators.

The 3-0 Easter Monday Yorkshire derby defeat to Sheffield United drew in the largest support of the campaign, with 14,116 in attendance for the 3-0 defeat, although a number of those in the home end were visiting supporters who had managed to purchase tickets among the home ends of stadium. However, that number was still over 1,400 lower than last season’s average attendance at City’s home ground of 15,557, the previous lowest average recorded at the ground for a league season.
