ABSTRACT
THOSE who study trends in football have noticed a troubling sequence in the Premier League. Relegation is increasingly linked to attendance figures. Wigan Athletic's demotion to the Championship meant that this season two of the three relegated clubs are also in the Premier League's bottom three average attendances. The other relegated club, Reading, were 17th in that table. Only Swansea challenged the form. It was not always this way. Between 2002-03 and 2008-09, a run of seven seasons, only one team with a bottom three average attendance figure went down — Watford in 2006-07. Yet in the last four seasons, five have dropped: Burnley and Portsmouth in 2009-10, Blackpool in 2010-11 and now Wigan and Queens Park Rangers.
