West Ham United's average home gate is the eleventh largest in the country so far this season, according to latest figures.

Despite playing in the nation's second flight this term having been relegated last year, Sam Allardyce's side have managed to pack more supporters into the Boleyn Ground on a weekly basis - some 30,029 - than half of the clubs in the Premier League.

Additionally, the Hammers have the highest average attendance in the nPower Championship - some 4,000 more than their nearest rivals Derby County - and the highest average fill rate (84.2%); the 14th highest in the country.

All figures include the latest round of fixtures (to 25th January):
