Seattle, of course, has set average attendance records now in each of its four seasons in MLS:
30,943 in 2009
36,173 in 2010
38,498 in 2011
43,144 in 2012
Only 24 clubs in all of Europe have higher average attendance than Seattle. The Sounders are out-drawing CHELSEA (Granted capacity is a factor, Chelsea sells out every game at under 42,000).
But it shows that putting stock in that percentage is worthless.
I saw that. That Sounders FC had higher averages for crowds than many World Wide Clubs.
Also that Sounders FC had double the average of Television viewers, which is why they are looking for big $$$$$ in regards to their new Sponsor.
