Thursday’s match in Chicago had a poor turnout of 12,584 in attendance. That’s too bad because Chicago’s revival took a boost with a win over FC Dallas. And Dallas’ showing for the Texas Derby of 15,055 was also soft too.

The rest of the league had good reported attendances. The Cascadia Cup matchup between Seattle and Portland outdrew Atlanta, but overall Atlanta continues to lead the pack.

After the first 142 matches, the average attendance is down 1.11% vs 2016.
