Aston Villa Ladies: Attendances rise by 133% in 2018/19

Aston Villa Ladies’ average attendance increased by an impressive 133% during the 2018/19 season. 

A crowd of 441 watched Saturday’s season finale against Crystal Palace at the Ladies’ home ground Boldmere St Michaels FC, meaning their average attendance across 14 matches was 495. 

The figure represents a huge jump from their average crowd of 212 in the 2017/18 season when they were playing at Tamworth FC. 

Head Coach Gemma Davies said: “The support we have had from the stands this season has been unbelievable.

“The players have loved every minute of playing at Boldmere and I’d like to think the team have given supporters a lot of entertainment during the season. 

 “We improved throughout the season and hopefully fans will want to join us again next season as we try to push ourselves further up the table and compete at the top.” 

 Across the Ladies’ ten FA Women’s Championship home matches, their average attendance was 541. 

 The Ladies also set a new club record attendance when they played Leicester City at Villa Park in January, with 1,618 supporters turning up to watch.

The team excelled at home, losing only two of ten league matches, thrashing Sheffield United 5-1 and winning an FA Cup penalty shoot-out after a thrilling 3-3 draw.
