New stadium effect

Oxford United's move from the Manor Ground to the Kassam Stadium hasn't been a great one for the club. More than 20 years after opening, the ground is still 3-sided and the club are investigating the possibility of moving to another new stadium.

In the stands, attendances have fallen by 9% from 6,402 to 5,839. This may have been driven by the slump in results on the pitch which saw Oxford fall more than 40 places from 47th to 89th, culminating in a 4-year spell in the National League.
