The attendance numbers for last week’s MLS games were a mixture of the good, the bad and the ugly.

Midweek numbers were typically poor in Columbus and Houston. New York City FC’s was okay while Orlando City SC had over 24,000. The weekend games drew well with the exception of FC Dallas who drew its smallest crowd of the season. In better news, New England’s match against Toronto had the Rev’s highest reported gate in 2017.

After the first 157 matches, the average attendance is down 1.50% vs 2016.
