The Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders both increased capacity for a few games resulting in a percent full stadium over 100%. The San Jose Earthquakes played at Stanford Stadium for a game on July 4th weekend and drew 41,028 fans resulting in an increase in attendance.
The Houston Dynamo and the Montreal Impact will both have soccer specific stadiums next year. San Jose will have a soccer specific stadium complete in 2013. DC United and NE Revolution have no plans for soccer specific stadiums. Vancouver will play all games at BC Place next year with expandable seating.
