MLS had a mixed bag of reported attendances last week. LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls had good attendance numbers as well as the usual strong reports from Seattle Sounders and Toronto FC.

But then there was FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo and Philadelphia Union.

DC United’s poor attendance can be excused due to the monsoon-like weather that caused the match to be postponed Saturday night before the match was completed on Sunday.

So far this season, after 258 matches, MLS is averaging 21,538 fans per game, which is up 0.22% compared with 2016.
