Red Dragons on Tour

Between December 2007 and March 2020 (284 games), only 3 league attendances at The Racecourse were greater than the 7,338 fans who travelled to Blackburn.

Largest recorded away support for Wrexham since 1978 (perhaps).

In excess of 7,300 Wrexham fans packed the away end at Ewood Park; a magnificent following, and they kept singing to the end. As far as I can see, it's the most fans Wrexham have ever taken to an away match since 1978. While that might be true on paper, I'm not so sure it's accurate.

The problem is that away support never used to be reported, so there will have been many occasions when a horde of Wrexham fans will have descended onto a town, but the exact figure was never reported. However, the estimable Wrexham AFC Archive records 8,000 Wrexham supporters were at Farrar Road to see us beat Bangor City 2-1 in the first leg of the Welsh Cup final.

Was it the most fans we've taken to a midweek away match though? Let me know if you know otherwise!

Last time we lost two games in a row: May 2022 (Bromley & Grimsby Town).
