  1. Amazing who Atlanta can get more fans for every game than there stadium will ever hold! They are doing no one any favours by lying about their HUGE crowds not.!Just take look at any UStream Atlanta game & try & figure who is a real person & who is a painted seat..OK they want to sell fair enough but to claim crowds 66% higher than they get is going to screw NASL/ How many will they claim showed up to watch the Cosmos? Fort Lauderdale could claim 20,000 & it 10,000 total liewould be legit they actually have the capacity. Cosmos can call 13.000 no doubt Atlanta claim more than 4,000

    • Atlanta front office guys are great had a fine chin wag with them at Lockhart yesterday.They are embarrassed by their own fans Ultras .Bunch of punks who think they are hooligans. The REAL supporters groups are great friggin asshole kids think Millwall rool! Same as the worse end of Ralphs mob at Tampa Yuppie college kids who missed the education

      • Atlanta front office is partially to blame in my opinion. Have the Ultras crossed the line on occasion? Sure. But when the front office does such a poor job of drawing the line, they should share the blame. There are maybe 2 or 3 security people in the entire stadium and they let all the kids play on the field once the players leave but god forbid one Ultra celebrates a victory by jogging down the sideline in front of the stands with a flag. A cop tries to take matters into his own hands and tries to arrest the guy, angering a bunch of Ultras. Just one of many mishandled in stadium occurrences by Silverbacks front office and security. I would like to see the Atlanta staff create a set of guidelines and stand by it, not let the Ultras run wild and then try and punish them for acting like a bull in a China shop.

    • These numbers have little to do with “crowds”.

      These numbers are the announced ticket sales for each game. That is how attendance is calculated in every sport and includes any giveaways.

    • As an Atlanta fan, my guess is that the Atlanta front office is aware of this and sells single game tickets on top of season tickets that they know wont show up. Additionally, with their restaurant/concession set up in the north goal area, the south goal area where hundreds of kids running around, and the number fans who take advantage of the standing room in the walkways, more fans are actually there than the seats might indicate. They inflate their numbers about as much as anyone else at the end of the day.

  2. After all the monies Fath has put into FCE their attendance numbers are embarassing…the city are not warming up to semi pro football. They only drew 2800 for their match with Vancouver. I cannot see why Fath would continue to lose millions on a club that one cannot win or keep a lead and more importantly on a city that proves again unless you win everything , will not support you with bums in the stands….Edmonton, I am extremely disappointed ..you support a horrible Oilers club…a mediocre 2skies(over the last 15 years they suck) yet ignore a far more affordable, growing ever more popular sport…one million people and they averga just under 1700 per game..Clarke should be sold out…pathetic…

  3. Attendace at non-regular season games is often higher. The Carolina Railhawks have played the LA Galaxy, Chivas USA, Pumas, and are playing Puebla this year. Those games have crowds more in the 6,000 – 8,000 range.

    • The 8121 draw for the cup game against LA Galaxy shows that their is more potential in the market. I tried to compile attendance data for all cup games this year but can only find data for a fraction (even teams with MLS teams).

      Preseason matches are fun but are often lower prices (if not free) and don’t really reflect much on the strength or health of the team, let alone the league.

      I’m still kind of surprised Carolina has not gotten higher gates, especially with their results on the field.

      • Thanks for compiling this data!
        I hear you about the RailHawks attendance — I’m working to get the word out! Seems out Town (who own’s the stadium) isn’t interested in promoting our team (despite the fact that they do promote the music venue on the other side of town.) Your data is helping me with my case to get the attitude to change here.

  4. I have been to 3 S.A Scorpions games this year. I am certain that they would have a higher attendance average if they’re stadium was larger. It was awesome to see the place soldout on July 6th. I believe since the games start late in the evening the heat doesn’t really factor in attendance.

  8. MNUFC fan here. It’s pretty clear that the people here like 1 of 2 thing. Either they like the indoor (Dome spring season) or they like the location (downtown Minneapolis). The fall games are at the Nation Sports Center in Blaine which is the northern suburbs and is about a 30 minute drive from down Minneapolis. It’s outdoor, which I don’t think is much of a factor, but man was it cold last nights game (35F). United needs to find a location downtown or at least a lot closer. Heck, they should really shoot for TCF stadium on the UMN campus. Now that’d be a great location!

  9. How much longer FCE can afford to field a club, let alone a competitive club with crowds averaging 2700 is beyond me. FCE needs to come up with the 100 Million for the 24th MLS franchise in 3-5 years or this NASL club is doomed to fail due to lack of interest and insufficient revenues coupled with an inferior facility

    • I’m under the impression that FCE has been using a “temporary” facility and that the club has been trying to find or renovate a venue for use as a more permanent home.

      In terms of the future, FCE has instituted an admirable residency program and has signed a couple of local teenagers for the senior squad. That’s an encouraging sign for me regarding the club’s commitment to carry on.

      • I agree. FCE has already developed a reputation as the Canadian Club fielding Canadian footballers, in addition to what you pointed out about the residency program. The 3 Canadian Clubs that play in MLS hardly pay any attention to Canadians. FCE is very much appreciated for that. I honestly hope Ottawa Fury FC will do the same, though they have quite done it so far with their initial signings. We’ll see how it develops as we get closer to the start of the season.

  10. Another thing to keep in mind is that Edmonton is still very much a Hockey Town, and I don’t expect that to change…ever. Secondly, it is a Canadian football town. So, FCE is trying to establish itself and football/soccer as the third sport/home team of the city. I think that is doable, and it is doable more so in the NASL then in MLS.
