The top ten attendances for regular Super League round games in history

Super League’s 26-year existence has witnessed some bumper crowds over the seasons with records consistently being broken.

From the list, it is quite clear that one fixture trumps all with Wigan and St Helens games being responsible for six of the top ten.

That derby is set to get even tastier in 2022 as the Warriors enter in a new era under head coach Matt Peet, with Lee Briers and Sean O’Loughlin as his assistants. Shaun Wane has also returned to the club where he won so much in a backroom leadership ole.

Meanwhile, Kristian Woolf continues to build his St Helens side for yet another tilt at the Super League title after three successive Grand Final victories.

But, along with the St Helens and Wigan fixtures, just which ten regular round games have brought in the most spectators?

    more worrying is the last, based on a publicity stunt and not a derby game, was over 2 years ago, the next nearest was in 2018 away from an RL ground and most are quite old really – we need to halt this decline in general attendances whether they are derbies or just an SL game!
