Wembley has not been filled to its 90,000 capacity during England's qualifying campaign, with attendances fluctuating from under 70,000 during their first home fixture against Ukraine, to almost 87,000 for the win over San Marino.
Poland are entitled to 10% of the capacity but the FA took the decision to offer Polish fans 18,000 tickets in an attempt to stop them buying seats among home support.
"I presume it will [have a positive effect on Poland]," said Hodgson. "I would imagine they would prefer to play in front of 18,000 fans away from home.
"We have a lot of Polish people in this country and, from what I understand, the FA was virtually forced into this issue because there could have been safety problems with Polish fans sitting with the English fans."
"I remember when we played Ghana - and I don't know how many there were there - they were amazing and it just made it better.
"If it adds to the atmosphere, it's great."
It is understood the FA took the decision to increase the away allocation after discussions with police.
"With high demand for tickets from the large Polish community in England the FA took the decision, based on safety grounds, to ensure Polish fans were allocated space in a specific area of the ground rather than attempting to buy tickets in home areas," said and FA Spokesman.
"This is the same process that was employed for the successful Scotland and Republic of Ireland fixtures earlier this year."
