RECORD! Lowest ever attended National League Play-Off Final!

Yesterday was the 17th National League Promotion Final and the 11th to be played at Wembley, but it was the lowest attendance in history – with only 8,049 fans attending the 3-0 for Salford City against AFC Fylde.

The first play-off final took place in 2003 at Stoke City where Doncaster Covers beat Dagenham & Redbridge 3-2 in front of 13,092, but since then attendances have been on the rise, with the highest in 2015 when 47,029 fans packed into the National Stadium to witness Bristol Rovers return to the Football League by beating Grimsby Town 5-3 on penalties.

Here are the full list of attendances since 2004:
