Won the League Cup in the Championship and remain in this division.
Even playing Valencia (2nd in La Liga) in the group stage Torquay fans don't show up.
Next game we play League 2 Carlisle in the League Cup and its a full house!

What's going on there then?

Maybe there was chaos outside, someone caused a fight and all the entrances were sealed until the culprit was caught so nobody could enter.

Could be Stevie G. Maybe a pub DJ wouldn't let someone on his decks?

I have this problem - also in the Championship.

Home Europa League quarter-final v Shakhtar Donetsk, got an attendance of 212 (capacity 2300). Worst part is that before the game, in the 'news' it said I was braced for a low turnout, and that the Chairman had said that with success, hopefully attendances would pick up...

I had this problem before in the Champ, and it was down to the seating arrangements at my ground. UEFA rules do not allow standing spectators in their competitions, so my crowds would max out at whatever my seating capacity was. Getting my board to increase the capacity (add seats) sorted this for me and my Europa attendances raised as a result.
