The National League is often considered as ‘League Three’ in English football for the scattering of former League Two clubs that it has in its 23-team league.

Many clubs in English football’s fifth tier once plied their trade in the Football League but find themselves in a division that can be categorised as ‘non-league’ and semi-professional, though some teams still operate on a full-time basis.

Unlike the Football League which has three promotion spots in the Championship and four in League One and Two, only two teams come up from the National League. It is Stockport County after an 11-year absence, who have come up as champions.

The Hatters have a sizeable following, as do their promotion rivals Wrexham, but how do they compare to the league above?

There’s a mix and match of teams in League Two with some boasting terrific support whilst others come from small towns that may have low numbers but maintain a respectable following.

Bradford City, who once dined in English football’s top league, the Premier League, have one of the respected fan bases, given how populated Yorkshire is and the success of current sides like Leeds United and Huddersfield Town.

There’s also teams who share a city with other clubs, like Bristol Rovers, who have Bristol City two divisions above them.

Below is the position of all 48-teams in League Two and the National League based on their average attendances.
