Fans had to watch on from home for over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic but after restrictions were lifted supporters across the country have relished being back in stadiums with a number of impressive attendances this season.

Lee Johnson’s side were backed by a standout 31,549 for their season opener against Wigan Athletic at the Stadium of Light in August with Black Cats fans showing no let-up in their support as the Wearsiders’ look to make it fourth time lucky in escaping from League One.

It goes without saying there are a number of big clubs at this level and it’s not just on Wearside where attendances have swelled with seven League One teams averaging in excess of 10,000 spectators.

Here we look at the top 10 League One average attendances as we reach the quarter-way mark of the season.
