*Teams play select games at higher capacity


  1. Please explain the calculations behind the numbers. Are these numbers based on:
    a) actual gate passers at the game?
    b) number of tickets sold to the game?
    C) number of tickets sold plus promotional tickets provided to the game?
    Thanks in advance.

  2. These are the official press released attendances from the teams and the MLS. It is based on the number of tickets sold to the game. I have seen many articles published on how this is not accurate and people do not like this practice as some clubs (such as Houston) publish large number but appear to have very few people actually in the stands.

    1. Where are some of the capacity numbers coming from? I know some of the stadiums are WAY bigger than their listed capacity
