Per Game Average: 2,542
Wilmington saw a huge bump in their attendance. It would seem that playing a popular MLS Reserves team has a big impact on the attendance. Although it does matter who the team is. Pittsburgh gained attendance this week against Charleston from last week’s game against TFC Reserves. While the Dayton Dutch Lions didn’t break a thousand in attendance they did come pretty close. For a team that commonly plays in front of 200 to 400 people this is a big increase overall.
Another week with no Orlando home game to bump the overall attendance number up. They don’t play next week either. Four teams saw their attendance dip from their last home game.
