Ten games took place over Gameweek 11 with a total attendance figure of 8,437. Dundalk’s home game against Galway United was the highest attended game with 2,170 punters coming through the turnstiles. On the flip side Athlone Town’s clash against Drogheda United ranked lowest with 158.

 

The Gameweek 11 total was the second lowest of the season. Gameweek 5, the series of games over Easter weekend, registered an average of 760 compared to last weekend’s 844.  

 

We also had a full series of Premier Division games on Tuesday which saw Dundalk once again rank as the best attended game. Their 1-0 win over Bray Wanderers registered 1,940 which is the first time this season the Louth sides figures have dipped below 2,000.

 

For the first time since Gameweek 1, we have a full set of official figures for Gameweek 11 with no estimates. Gameweek 12 however features two estimates – from Longford and Derry City’s games.
