Atlanta United broke the MLS attendance record with a massive crowd of 70,425 this past Saturday in the draw against Orlando City SC.

Aided by Atlanta’s large attendances for their two recent home matches, MLS had a strong week of reported attendances for most teams across the league.

However, there were poor turnouts for Chicago Fire, Colorado Rapids and FC Dallas games.

After 315 matches, the average attendance (21,709) is up 0.96% vs 2016.
