Sounders Break MLS Attendance Record
Posted By Sports Talk Florida News Desk On October 29, 2013 @ 10:58 AM In soccer | No Comments
For the fifth year running the Sounders set an MLS attendance record by averaging 44,038 fans per game at CenturyLink Field.
For contextual purposes, that’s higher than any team in Major League Baseball, save the Los Angeles Dodgers who averaged 46,216, and more than double the average attendance of the Seattle Mariners.
Comparing that number to the Premier League, Seattle trumps the average attendance of Sunderland A.F.C. by an average of 3,500 fans. The Stadium of Light, which holds 49,000 supporters, recorded an average of 40,544 fans during the 2012-13 season.
