Limerick FC have 4th highest Premier Division attendance

Limerick FC have 4th highest average attendance in Premier Division.

In the past few weeks, Limerick FC have seemed to settle well into their life back in the Premier Division, lying in a very respectful 4th place, just one spot outside the European places.

Since being appointed interim manager, Willie Boland is yet to taste defeat in his 5 League games in charge. Limerick are on a roll and travel to Sligo Rovers tomorrow night hoping for a repeat of their 5-1 victory on the opening night of the season in the Markets Field.

On Average, 1,920 people have attended the games in the Markets Field so far this season. That is a total of 11,518 spectators coming out to see Limerick FC. This gives Limerick the 4th highest average attendance behind runaway leaders Cork City, Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers.

The game between Cork City and Dundalk at Turners Cross saw the largest attendance of the season so far with 6,756 turning up to witness Cork beat the defending champions 3-0.
