MLS Attendance Report: May 19, 2007

Every week I’ll update the average attendance totals for each team in MLS on our site and of course attendance will be a frequent topic on our forthcoming podcasts.

I am worried by the low numbers in some markets this season. Chivas USA for example is averaging 7,000 less fans per game than they did last season, and Red Bull New York, despite having an excellent team is averaging under 10,000 fans a match which is totally unacceptable in the nation’s largest sports and TV market. The more worrying issue is that traditionally MLS has used strong crowds between April and July to ride out the storm of declining crowds and media exposure once American Football season begins. This season it appears that the Beckham affect better be massive otherwise some markets like New York and New England are going to have their worst attendance since the league was formed.
