FC Cincinnati averaging better attendance than 10 MLS clubs

FC Cincinnati, which broke the United Soccer League's season attendance record in 2016, is averaging better attendance in 2017 than ten Major League Soccer clubs.

Through six league matches, FCC has averaged 19,132 fans per game. They've gone 4-3-3 in those contests (15 points), which has them currently ranked No. 4 in the USL.

In MLS, Real Salt Lake, San Jose Earthquakes, Houston Dynamo, DC United, Philadelphia Union, New England Revolution, FC Dallas, FC Dallas, Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew have all averaged fewer than 18,397 fans per game through 12 matches.

Sporting KC and New York Red Bulls have barely edged out FCC in attendance with an average of 19,232 and 19,646 fans per game.

If FCC joins MLS, they shouldn't have any problem keeping up with the league's average of 21,016 fans per game. In 2016, FCC's highest-attended game featured 35,061 fans when the team took on the Premier League's Crystal Palace F.C. in a 2-0 defeat.
