    Out of interest what is the lowest level of football most people will go and watch, especially at Non League?

    I guess it depends how far I have to travel. I wandered down to watch a few Basingstoke Town Ladies games (and even ran the line once!) before they folded but I didn't even consider going to an away game. In men's football, I'll watch anything down to step six but I rarely go to games below step four.

    When the U's don't have a match or are away at a less than attractive venue, I'll happily support Cambridge City ( still stuck in Isthmian League North ) or whoever is playing against Histon (just promoted to Isthmian League North).

    Lowest i've watched is Step 6.

    I tend to watch Step 3 games most of the time, purely because of the number of grounds nearby.

    I think the lowest I'd go is Conference North. Anything lower I'd get bored and be out of there for HT.

    I go to all sorts, try and get to a game at every level down to step 7 during the season. Nearest teams to me are at steps 5 and 6. I find those levels to be highly entertaining. My nearest side Rochester United were awful last season, narrowly avoiding relegation to step 7. However they tended to be involved in superb games as they had the 2nd top scorer (and one of the best players in the division) and a shocking defence.

    Been to see Sleaford Town a couple of times, in the United Counties Premier. Also been to watch Lincoln United a bit before they got into bed with Lincoln City. Hopefully get to see Newark Town on their new pitch this year.

    I'll watch any level of football tbh. Used to go see Bo'ness United when I was growing up.

    Fermanagh & Western Reserve 3 is the lowest adult league I've been to (on a number of occasions). The NI football pyramid is so complicated, and is chopped and changed so much, I'm not actually sure what level it is, but I believe it is around tier 12.
