If you’ve been following MLS attendance for a while, it should come as no surprise at the poor attendance numbers in Colorado and Dallas. I was also surprised by the relatively weak number in Philadelphia.
New York City FC’s number was also weak, but it’s possible that they are reaching their true level after 2½ seasons. As I mentioned last week, San Jose’s year-to-date deficit was reduced to on-par with 2016 as their match versus the Galaxy was held in Stanford Stadium with a turnout of over 50,000.
After the first 196 matches, the average attendance is down 0.76% vs 2016.
