34 thoughts on “2014 USL-Pro Season Attendance Log

  1. If one were to look only at attendance figures, it’s easy to conclude that the NASL is way ahead of USL Pro. After Orlando leaves, It would seem that the logical choice for some the USL Pro teams would be to “promote” themselves to NASL. Teams like Rochester, for sure. Maybe even Sacramento once they are established.

    • With the partnership that USL Pro has with MLS I don’t see any teams from Pro going to the NASL. Heck the NASL is going into markets where the USL Pro is, see OKC. In a related note USL Pro is going to expand like crazy to accommodate the partnership with MLS next year. Colorado Springs, Tulsa, Detroit, the Red Bulls Reserves are all expected to be in the USL Pro next year and I’ve heard rumors about Louisville and El Paso getting teams as well.

    • It’s an interesting discussion for sure. I think as fans there is a strong inclination to maybe read more into the divisional distinctions than there really is. The most significant difference between the two leagues is the financial assurances that owners in the NASL must give.

      There is also a tendency for soccer fans (myself included) to want things to “shake out” and for clubs to express their ambition in some tangible way. That would mean clubs “self-promoting” up a division, joining the Development Academy, or spending on notable talent.

      With MLS providing 4 (give or take) players for a USL Pro team’s roster and the relative rise in operating costs in the NASL, it doesn’t make business sense to join that league. While the shift “fits” theoretically with a meritocratic hierarchy, it’s unrealistic.

      • I agree that, in terms of the talent, there is not a discernible difference at the moment. However, playing on the road against teams drawing 800 fans has got to feel strange when you’re used to playing in front of a home crowd of 5,000 or more. Currently, the NASL teams, on average, seem to appear more legit from a fan base perspective. However, economics will dictate the success of NASL in differentiating itself in the long run. If the owners/league can’t earn a profit, then it won’t last. I have no idea if the clubs are profitable, or not.

        • I have watched a few games in both the NASL and USLpro leagues and I am seeing quite a difference in NASL play being noticeably better. The only exception is Orlando City, which is looking ready to be in MLS. Really surprised that OKC is not doing better in terms of winning, but am impressed with SacRep and what they have put together in terms of support and interest.

    • Why would it be logical to lose more money?

      First off, contractually, it’s nigh on impossible.

      Secondly, except for Sacramento, most USL Pro teams would struggle with what it costs to be a Division II team.

      Thirdly, there are USSF ownership capitalization requirements most USL Pro organizations would struggle to meet.

      Fourthly, Rochester was a second division club and initially threw in with the NASL folks before jumping back to USL.

      So, no, it would not be “logical” for some USL Pro teams – definitely not Rochester – to “promote themselves.”

      Pay attention. Seriously.

  16. Very happy to see some new energy behind pro soccer in Charlotte! I’m hoping that the local soccer community will get behind this team and build something, even if the MLS “goal” is not achieved. Unless MLS decides to expand in a big way (like NFL size, or MLS-2), Soccer fans in many cities will have to accept supporting a USL or NASL side.

    The trend of MLS clubs starting their own USL teams is interesting, but I’m not sure this is good for USL, as these teams will not be selling a lot of tickets. I can see some advantages, but I’d predict that over time, assuming continued growth in the US in fan support, TV revenue, and overall economics, that the more successful USL teams may not enjoy playing in the MLS reserve league, and move up to NASL if the MLS dream is not a reality.

    • I agree that I do not know if MLS reserve teams are good for USL, but I do think it is good for MLS as it helps develop talent with MLS standards.
      For me, I do not really understand the vision for USL. It has a team or two that really make a strong push to go MLS, then it has teams that are very mid-tier and will never go MLS, which is fine, and then it has teams that really should be in a lower league like Dayton and Orange County.
      Maybe USL is just in the process of establishing itself as a solid third tier, but it just takes time. They sure did add a bunch of teams this past season. Hopefully the teams that actually produce some decent fan support and help grow the sport. It does, however, look like a very fast land grab in order to claim cities away from NASL.

    • Yeah, I saw that RSL posted an attendance for that one but I decided not to post any data for games hosted by MLS Reserve League teams. Thanks for digging that up, though.

      I don’t think they relate to USL PRO in any meaningful way, similar to how international friendly attendances don’t reflect fervor for MLS teams in those markets. What do you think, Jim?

      • I really only pursue it for completeness, but it would seem to have had enough impetus to create another D3 team. For the 2015 season anyway.
