Last Saturday's opponents Huddersfield Town have provided a breakdown of their crowd figures for the match against Yeovil Town. Huddersfield's policy is to declare their attendance as the number of tickets sold for the match, regardless of how many actually attend the game. However, they do provide a breakdown of the numbers who went through the turnstiles on the day of the game to provide an attendance figure in the literal sense of the word.
Huddersfield have stated that 11,222 supporters were in attendance at last Saturday's match, of which 165 supporters were from Yeovil Town. However, the declared gate given to the press was 13,479, meaning that 2,257 tickets were sold that were not subsequently used to gain admission to the stadium. Many of these will be from Huddersfield's season ticket holders, although there will be a residual number of day tickets that went unused.
Yeovil Town's policy in recent seasons has been to record the 'attendance' as the numbers of tickets sold, rather than the numbers who actually attended the game.
