Sandy Park attendances have continued to rise during the 2017/18 season with a 4% increase in fans to the home of Exeter Chiefs this season.

After a record-breaking campaign during 2016/17 when the club recorded a total attendance figure of 208,424, the figure rose again last season as 216,291 spectators attended 19 first team fixtures played at Sandy Park, a rise of 7,867 on the previous season.

In the Premiership, the average home match-day crowd was 11,780 compared to 11,483 the previous year, while the average home crowd for all fixtures rose to 11,383 from that of 10,421 in 2016/17.

Last season saw nine fixtures break the 12,000 mark, the highest of which was the New Year's Eve encounter against Leicester Tigers, which attracted a capacity crowd of 12,807.

Reflecting on the figures, chief executive Tony Rowe said: "As a club we are naturally delighted to see that attendances have continued to rise here at Sandy Park. Having a successful product, both on and off the field, is imperative for the growth of the Chiefs moving forward.

"We know that our award-winning match-day experience is something that rugby supporters really embrace, but so too is the quality of rugby that is being produced here by Rob and his outstanding team.

"Having a successful side not only means we are able to challenge for honours throughout the course of the season, but it helps generate vital match-day revenue that helps to keep us amongst the leading clubs
