Figures have shown today that attendances at Football League matches are at their highest for 50 years - with Wednesday greatly contributing to the figures.
The Championship is the fourth-highest watched competition in Europe, behind just the Premier League, La Liga and the Bundesliga.
League One and League Two attendances have also increased - with the whole Football League enjoying a one per cent increase on figures the previous campaign.
Wednesday have no doubt contributed to the figures - with their bumper crowds of 30,658 at the final match against Cardiff City, 30,441 against Sheffield United and 28,766 against Charlton being some of the biggest this season.
The Owls' fantastic away support will also have no doubt boosted attendances at grounds up and down the country.
And while some predicted attendances at football matches in England to drop in light of the current financial climate, they look set to improve again next season.
Football clubs, including Wednesday, are desperate to increase attendances and keep the fans coming to live matches by reducing ticket prices and increasing offers on both season ticket and match day tickets.
Attendances at matches in the Championship rose by 5 per cent during the 2008-09 campaign and averaged 17,891.
The Owls average 21,541 last season - with crowds drastically improving since Mr Strafford started his time at S6 after Christmas.
