Ground capacities and seat numbers for current Championship

Mon Nov 13, 2017 7:29 pm

Just found this, not sure if its all correct?

1970 Ground capacities and seat numbers for current Championship clubs & Now in 2017.


I am sure Ninian Park Capacities Ground was not 60,000 in 1970? (5,000 seats was correct in the main Grandstand).
It was in the 1940's/50's & 60's :thumb right:

Our New Cardiff City stadium 33,500 is correct :thumbright: :bluebird:

Some interesting figures from 1970. Could the Den actually hold over 44.000? It didn't seem that big in the late70's.
