Reading would find themselves in League One in a Football League alternative table based on all-time average attendances.

In League One in real-life too, ending a 20-year stint in the upper echelons of the EFL, not much would change on attendances either.

In existence for 151 years, the Royals have averaged 10,550 at each home game.

This puts them 47th among the full 92, below Swansea City and Bradford City.

Local sides Oxford United and Swindon Town find themselves not far behind, on 7,249 and 9,213 respectively.

Less than 500 separates the bottom of the second tier with Reading in third in League One, with Blackpool propping up the Championship on 10,941.

Reading Chronicle:

This historical average is far below the current average of over 13,000- which would place the Biscuitment firmly in the second tier.

In fact, 1999/2000 was the last time this figure was below 10,000- averaging 8,985.

Eight non-Premier League teams find themselves in the top 20 for historic average attendances, including the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City.
