Attendance at The Valley has soared over the course of the season, with the general optimism around Charlton increasing as their incredible 2018/19 journey goes on, with around 25,000 Addicks fans making their way to SE7 for the nail-biting victory over Doncaster Rovers on Friday.
Next up for Lee Bowyer’s side? Sunderland at Wembley Stadium. The Londoners can achieve promotion if they beat the Black Cats on Sunday and thousands of Charlton fans have been buying tickets this week – 38,227, to be exact.
It’s a phenomenal effort from the fans to match that from the players and Bowyer, which has got the team to where they are now, and the Addicks faithful will be hoping that their support can propel their beloved side to glory.
One of English football’s lesser known rivalries was reignited on Saturday thanks to an unlikely source. Check out the video above to find out which one…
Former midfielder Bowyer has done a fantastic job in reuniting the fans and the team once again, with Roland Duchatelet threatening to drive a wedge between them, and it will be quite the story if Charlton can lift the trophy this weekend. Here’s what the Addicks fans on Twitter had to say about the impressive number of tickets sold…
Unbelievable support? the scenes at the Valley was incredible and the following again is something special. What a club…. I just hope we win and give Bowyer his deserved contract and with new owners, this club will reach the heights of the premier league again.
