Owls Fans Are Number One!

Of course, we all knew it all along, but now it's official - Wednesday fans were number one for most travelling supporters in the Championship last season.

No matter how bad we are, which lets face it, was a fair few instances last season, Owls fans always follow their team, and last season was no exception with an average of almost 2,000 fans travelling up and down the country to watch the blue and white wizards.

The figure of 1,963 is the highest in the Championship, despite a poor season which finished with a narrow escape from relegation, above nearest rivals West Brom and Sheffield United.

7 Leicester City 1,353
8 Hull City 1,340
9 Watford 1,318
10 Stoke City 1,263
11 Norwich City 1,176
12 Crystal Palace 1,164
13 Southampton 1,142
14 Blackpool 1,140
15 Queens Park Rangers 1,116

And what difference did it make with the money you spent? We admit we're garbage, but we beat you twice :). And we don't have an obsession with going on Blades websites, either, you must be bored.
