Discussion in 'Dulwich Hamlet FC' started by Jamie Wyatt, May 5, 2014.
well of course that would be wrong to do. We wouldnt do that!
I know. That's why I was so keen to emphasise that we defintiely didn't do it!
Exactly and I'm glad you did emphasise we didnt go over 2856. As its so important.
Macclesfield spent 10 years in the league but their roots are definitely non-league.
The 3,000 was recorded final game of the season against Maidstone United
Non League day was recorded as 2,856 against Richmond & Hampton
Congrats to Sutton United
Champions Vanarama National League (South)
Sutton United 2 - 0 Chelmsford City
just surprised only 1,545
FA Cup Amateur Final 1937 at West Ham's Boleyn Ground (now Upton Park)
Dulwich Hamlet (2) V Leyton (0)
Surely this is the largest crowd for a Dulwich hamlet game
Why are you surprised? It's probably, without me checking, double their average... They've never got huge crowds...

I don't care what your cliche-riddled view of Dulwich Hamlet is, this is a testament to the hard yards put in #dhfc
Attendance at East Thurrock V Dulwich Hamlet play offs 2nd May 2016 attendance 1,661
about 800-1,000 Dulwich Hamlet fans
Attendance first home game 2016/17 season was
843 V Enfield Town (on a Tuesday night
This compares to first home game 2015/16 season
877 V Canvey Island (On a Saturday)
Only one home Tuesday night game last season had a higher attendance that the first of the 2016/17 season (843)
Last season highest Tuesday night home fixture 869 V Merstham

625 V Leatherhead
555 V H&R

Average gate after 7 home league games:
2012/13: 363 - (5-1-1)
2013/14: 553 - (6-0-1)
2014/15: 967 - (5-2-0)

2016/17: 1104 - (2-1-4)
The figures in brackets refer to won-drawn-lost.
It's a reasonable comparison with last year given that it includes the same number of Tuesday games (2) and a 'pay what you like' day last season vs the TU etc day yesterday
Of course, if we keep losing at home...
This is very good, as the general trend seems to be that attendances go up as the season progresses. so we'll beat that average again. Looking at the season average numbers, it appears the crowds have actually been plateauing for a couple of seasons.
Yesterday proves if we build for a game we can get the crowd
I know those unions supporting the game did a lot to get people along (but still room for improvement)
Yesterday, V Bognor Regis 2,217 was a great opportunity to build for the rest of the season
despite the result think most people went away having seen what Dulwich Hamlet has to offer (if not on the pitch)
I think we will need to start winning to keep the trend going up, we certainly need at least another 2,000 plus attendance
maybe we should build this in ?
On Saturday 19th November we have our,now annual, 'Pay What You Like' game, thanks to our owners agreeing to the Football club Committee request to have another one.
Our two charity benificiaries that day will be our official 2016/17 charity partners, Football Beyond Borders, who will be sharing the profit from the day after all the usual match expenses have been covered, with our near neighbours, the Dog Kennel Hill Adventure Playground.
What was our average attendance for last season 2015-2016
seem to have lost that stat
This Season so far 9 home games (6 Saturday and 3 Tues)
9 games highest 2217 lowest 711 total 10164
average attendance 1,129
compared to first 9 home games (6 Saturday and 3 Tues) of 2015-2016
9 games highest 1,961 lowest 555 total 9616
average was 1,068
Yep, 1343 average for all home league games last season.
Grew a lot over the season didn't it? Given the recent jump since the beginning of the season, I assume we are attracting a lot of students, more than I'd previously realised. I thought most of the rise had been down to the influx of middle aged journalists living in Herne Hill.
Seem to be lots of new faces every home game
think we have people who come to every 3rd or 4th home game
lots of students but also young families
so a lot of churning (maybe a third)
which shows the potential base - and shows why when we have big games we can get over 2,000
all very positive , despite out detractors
Top 50 non-league attendances 2016/17
1. Tranmere 4,796
19. Sutton United 1,467
23. Dagenham & Redbridge 1,302
27. Bromley 1,130
28. Dulwich Hamlet 1,129

Saturday's attendance was the highest ever for any league match ever played by Sudbury:
Disappointing Dulwich Defeat - News - AFC Sudbury
19th November 2016
Pay What You Like day
Dulwich Hamlet 4-1 Worthing.
second highest of the Season
V Bognor Regis FC (trade union day) 8th October 2016 2,217 crowd
last seasons "pay what you like" game attendance was 1,961 v VCD (which we won 5-2)
Are there still some out there that think attendances have been affected by KFH sponsorship? Not looking such a sound theory at this point.
Average attendance 2016-17
Played 13 (Home)
Last Season 1,343 *we have in recent years picked up higher attendances towards the end of the season
Other London non-League clubs (with higher average ) attendances
Sutton Utd average 1,499 (highest 1,951)
Bromley average 1,217 (highest 2,036)
Dagenham & Red average 1,274 (highest 1,554)
All Clubs with higher attendances are Football Conference (and thus playing ex League teams, with larger away fan support)
Dulwich Hamlet have had the highest non league attendance so far in London 2,217
We've also had some Saturday games moved to midweek, and thus will be lower.
not that I can be arsed to do it, but would be interesting to see our averages over the last few years separated by Saturdays/bank holidays & midweeks.
You need Lyham
Will update chart when I get a chance. Need to work on my database.
