Nonsense. Only times MLS draws like that is for doubleheaders -- ie when a real soccer team from Europe comes to town, or a big national team game like US vs Mexico or Canada vs US.

It's like a minor league team drawing 60k because the Yankees play the Dodgers after them.

MLS uses the 2 games for 1 price trick fairly often, it's a good marketing gimmick.

MLS will always be a minor league. It has a salary cap of $2 million -- per team!

Oh, and the $250M for Beckham was a lie. It was just marketing hype. He wasn't paid $250M or anywhere close to that. It was just PR to trick the simple-minded.
