Average Attendances Increase 20% at International Champions Cup

The second annual International Champions Cup tournament has ended, with the 2014 edition more than doubling the total attendance of the 2013 series.

The 2014 International Champions Cup was attended by 642,135 US soccer fans across the United States, which was more than double the number of the 2013 series that had a total of 306,344 attendees.

The average attendance for the 2014 games was 49,395, which is a 20% increase compared to the average in 2013 (41,048 per match). When you exclude the Ann Arbor game from the numbers, the average attendance still increased by 8% compared to 2013.

Attendances for the 2014 International Champions Cup broke records throughout the United States. In front of more than 109,000 fans at the “Big House” in Ann Arbor – breaking an attendance record for a professional soccer match in the United States – Manchester United topped reigning UEFA Champion Real Madrid 3-1. Meanwhile, there were huge crowds in Berkeley (62,583) for Real Madrid-Inter, in Charlotte (69,364) for Liverpool-Milan, in Landover (61,238) for Manchester United-AS Roma, as well as 51,014 for Manchester United against Liverpool in the final at Sun Life Stadium in Miami to name just a few.

The annual International Champions Cup has now become the must-attend club competition every summer for US soccer fans where they can see their favorite teams and players up close.

Plans are already in motion for the 2015 International Champions Cup with Manchester United among other clubs rumored to be participating.

There’s no doubt that the 2014 International Champions Cup was a resounding success during another sensational summer of soccer, proving once again that there’s a huge appetite for quality soccer across the United States.
