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.
What a load of garbage...
Seattle averaged over 40k fans this year. I do believe that would be top 5 in Premier League.
The leage had 5 teams average over 20k fans per game this season.
As for your comment about the national games...44,000 people showed up for a USA Scotland game. Really big draw those Scots...
And what is this 2 for 1 crap? Please point out to me the last time a major soccer team played 2 games in 1 day at their home stadium where they charged 1 price for both games. Really looking forward to this one.
