    Reality is more of a grey area, but I get your point. At any rate, The chivas USA video was great, and I too enjoyed the use of USA flags despite not being a zealous nationalistic kind of dude. Keep the good supporter videos coming!

    I'd be curious to see the membership numbers for each supporters club... or at least estimates...

    pretty sure the sons of ben are slowly closing in on 3000 paid members.....

    Visual impact...
    So in 2009 the Sounders started with a seating capacity of 27,000+
    In 2010 capacity increases again to 38,000+
    That is roughly the same amount of people as were at the preseason game.
    So what difference do the extra 11,000 fans make in a NFL sized stadium?
    Basically every person in this photo represents a fan that was not able to be in the stadium in the first half of 2009.

    does anyone know ,who had the largest number of traveling fans to a MLS game.organized tifo.

    There is any rule in terms of the number of tickets given to the away fans?for exemple,here,the rule is that the away team,may ask up to 10% of the entire capacity of the stadium.so,if you have 30k arena,you may give 3k to the away team.

    Also, if I am not wrong,in the european cup competition, due to safety reasons,5% of the capacity of the stadium, is not for sale.So,if you have a 100k,stadium,only 95k tickets will be sold.Does this rule apply for MLS?

    No 5% rule here. Two large countries in one league makes for huge distances between teams making travel long and expensive. Take a look here to get an idea of the distances involved: MLS Travel Distances For example Vancouver to Boston = 2503.1 Miles (4028.4km) by air or 3208.4 miles (5163.4km) driving. Compare that to the travel distance between Newcastle and Moscow 1522.7m (2450.5km) by air and 3346.2m (2079.3km) driving. That would be a bit much for weekly/biweekly travel for a significant number of fans.

    I believe the league only requires 100-150 seats for away and if all of those don't sell within a given time the remaining tickets are available for local fans, which happens frequently. Sounders/Whitecaps/Timbers have an agreement for 500 tickets for traveling supporter groups but nothing prevents away fans from purchasing random tickets, although there are reports of some being turned away this year.

    This thread from last year should answer more than I can:
    Cascadia Away Ticket Allocation It is focused on Cascadia teams but discussion encompasses the rest of the league.

    Side note: It was pointed out to me that I put 2010 in the previous post when it obviously should have been 2012. Whoops.

    Wait a minute, only one half of the stadium is open to seating? I never knew that because of the camera angles during broadcasts.

    It's 100 and they can start selling to general public 2 weeks before match (they do like to ******** around even with this simple rule).

    So for example, yes DC can in theory get only 100 tickets in Philly and other way around lol

    That was this week's Community Shield game. It didn't rain, thankfully, but it was in the low 40s/high 30s and windy. Most games the entire lower bowl is open.

    to answer this question, i believe it is still toronto at columbus on the opening day of the season that one year.

    i would imagine that portland/seattle could have just as many, however this wouldn't be possible due to a higher ticket demand for home fans.

    they also had more fans in the upper tier in one of the larger stands.
