New stadium effect

The Tigers moved to the KC Stadium in 2002, in what was the beginning of a massive upturn in the club's fortunes - both on and off the pitch.

The last few years at Boothferry Park saw Hull languishing in the 4th division, flirting with relegation to the National League (indeed they narrowly avoided it in 1998 and 1999 when they finished 90th and 89th out of 92). 1997 saw an average attendance of just 3,413 as prospects of a new stadium seemed a long way off.

Since the KC opened, Hull's turnaround has been remarkable - from an 81st place finish in 2003 to promotion to the Premier League just 5 years later. Average position improved from 74th to 39th - an improvement of some 35 places.

The improvement in the stands was even more spectacular. The first 10 years at the KC saw attendances skyrocket by 281%, from 5,078 to 19,351. Indeed the two seasons in the Premier League saw average attendance above 24,000 - that's 21,000 more than they averaged just 12 years before. Perhaps the new stadium came with better signposts.
