Blaise, any read on what's up with that at SJ?? They have been good recently... I'm surprised.



The stadium always looks full when Im there even though its the worst stadium in the league. Also this year, the earthquakes are doing a lot of pre-game activities for the fans like bbq's and DJ's.... and of course the game at Stanford vs Galaxy is always the season highlight.

A lot of hype on the summer friendly with Norwich City too..

Great Year for MlS. Looks like were gonna break another attendance record. Gotta say i think it will go higher every year specially if we get rid of Chivas USA and build new stadiums for a couple of teams. NE needs a stadium asap. orlando, and hopefully nycfc boost the attendance.

It looks like the average attendence will drop slightly from last year. Will have to see how it compares to other countries

according to Wiki, FC Dallas avg. attendance was up more than 1000 per match from last year, and depending on who we sign as the new head coach that figure could go up next year.

Almost all of that drop comes from Chivas USA

There were two really limiting factors for MLS this year. One is Chivas USA and its ineptitude. The other is San Jose and it's small 10k stadium.

Basically, MLS is really going to be around these numbers for awhile. Seattle will continue to draw well filling an NFL stadium but most of the other teams all play in stadiums between 18k-25k.

MLS will be helped out when San Jose moves into their own stadium and hopefully with an improved DCU in its own stadium. If Toronto and New England can get their fans back, it'll help too.

If that happens the league can push a 20k average but in all likelihood, that is as high as it'll go unless several teams undergo stadium expansion.

Attendance is fine but the TV ratings must improve now.

I didnt mean it to be knocking. I think MLS has greatly increased this year despite what the numbers say. What is great looking forward is most teams whether existing or expansion seem to be building the 20-25k stadiums that can seat upwards to 60k like what portland, seattle and others have done. Thats the next big step. If every year one team did that it'll be huge. In 20 years MLS could be right there with EPL & Bundes
