Despite their difficult campaign the Whites remain one of the best supported clubs in the Championship.

Leeds United's biggest home attendance of the season came against Bolton Wanderers in March, which saw a total of 35,377 people witness the 2-1 victory. The visit from Wanderers contributed to the second highest average home attendance in the division.

United's average Elland Road attendance in 2017/18 was 31,521, which left them just under 600 behind table toppers and play-off finalists Aston Villa who had the highest throughout the league.
