Roberto Martinez has been left perplexed by the dwindling attendance figures at The Liberty Stadium this term.
Despite the dwindling numbers and a ever present feeling that the Spaniard is building a successful Swansea Side spectators are still shying away from the Stadium on Match days.
Whilst there is a perceived downturn in attendance figures on the previous two seasons at the clubs new home however there are positives to glean.
97,607 fans have gone through the turnstiles so far this season which has seen Swansea city have the 3rd highest attendance figures in the league. Only Leeds United and Nottingham Forrest can claim to have higher figures.
The 10,845 average is well bellow the 20,500 capacity of the Stadium.For a club that is pushing for promotion to the 2nd tier of the football league is wholly unacceptable.
Club officials have made consertive efforts to encourage supporters to purchase tickets even going so far as offering £23 season tickets to under 16's.
Martinez insists despite the disappointing numbers , fans who to attend the games still have a big part to play.
The tactician also added that the players performances have to be right in order to attract more supporters to the stadium.
The Evening Post
|''Playing some of the football we've played and being on top of the league, we probably should have had bigger crowds.'|
We're playing football which is enjoyable to watch - I think it's hard not to get excited about it.'
But we just have to make sure we keep on performing and keep on getting results to get the crowds back in.'
Rather than blame fans for not turning up, we have to keep up our high standards and I'm sure then they will come back.'
It can be about quality rather than quantity, and the fans who have been watching us have been superb.
But the greater the numbers, the better it is for the club.
We all saw how intimidating Elland Road was because of the huge crowd and I believe we can make the Liberty intimidating as well.'
