The EFL have revealed the clubs to have sold the most season tickets in the Championship.

They state that altogether, the 24 clubs have sold 326,000 between them.

On the announcement of the EFL table, Newcastle United have stated that 37,000 of that total have been bought by Newcastle fans.

No club by club figures for the rest of the top ten but they confirm that Newcastle are indeed top when it comes to season tickets being sold.

Next best were Derby County and then Brighton.

Fellow relegated Norwich City are a respectable fourth but amusingly Aston Villa are way down in sixth.

With fifth place Sheffield Wednesday having crowds as low as twenty four thousand, if you take into account away fans and home supporters buying match by match, they must have less than twenty thousand season ticket holders.

Which means Aston Villa have surely sold less than half as many as Newcastle have, making it all the more amusing the claims from many Villa fans that they would be the biggest club in the Championship this season…
