Miami Fusion FC Historical Attendance

The Miami Fusion were a part of the first MLS expansion in 1998 with the Chicago Fire. The expansion moved the league to 12 teams and the historically awkward three conferences. One again like the Tampa Bay Mutiny, an uninspired fan base, dwindling ticket sales, and large revenue losses led to the contraction of this MLS franchise. The Fusion were only in the league for four years, and their departure along with the Mutiny in 2001 has left the state of Florida without an MLS team for over a decade. This will change as Orlando City FC is set to join the MLS in 2015.
Lockhart Stadium
Lockhart Stadium was renovated in 1998 to be a soccer specific facility with a capacity of 20,450. The Fusion were the first team to play in a soccer specific stadium. The Fusion were only able to muster an average attendance of 9,403 over the four years that they were in the league.
