Quick notes:

  • It is interesting, isn’t it, that five of the top six average attendance leaders in MLS weren’t around (or in those markets) six years ago? And that seven of the top ten play in their own stadiums?
  • New England announced this week that they’ll open up the entire lower bowl for Revs games next year. Yeah, that’ll help.
  • WPS’ Philadelphia Independence is being outdrawn by a team that doesn’t exist anymore.
  • None of the top 13 teams in attendance in the PDL (where I’m still missing some numbers) made the final four. Thunder Bay (794 per game) was the leader among the remaining four teams, but Portland will host the final four next weekend (championship game live on Fox Soccer Channel at 7pm ET Saturday).

    Correction on CP Baltimore’s home game. USSF website has 723, not the 703 as listed on the NASL website.

    http://ussf.demosphere.com/stats/2010/1634255.html

    That gives them an average of 1121 instead of 1118.

    Not that it really matters. When you’re drawing worse than Miami, I wouldn’t give them much hope, even of going back to USL2.

    WTF Independence? Maybe starting up the same year as the Union is a bad idea. Next year, they will be playing at PPL park- not sure how much that will help.

  3. National Sports Center Officially Announce They’re Looking for Investors for Stars Soccer Team | Inside Minnesota Soccer Says:

    [...] revenue has not allowed the organization to market the team properly and the result has been a dismal attendance figure of around 1,400 per game. The lack of revenue has caused the team to step back and see the need for others to help [...]
