    Latest attendance figure
    • Mid week will be a challenge to overcome for the league. I'm curious to see if Thursdays CONCACAF League Qualifier between Valour and Forge will draw better than a Wednesday.
    • Let's not forget that weather was cold this week in Calgary while cold & crap in Hamilton. Warmer weather should help
    • I think Mother's day was a bad idea. They should have had a triple header on the Saturday instead. Many commented that they were override by the wife and had plans with mom.
    • Edmonton playing the same day as the 1st day of mamateur soccer (so we've been told) might have been a bad move as most of those players could have boost attendances.
    Trial and error to learn from by the league and clubs.

    Are we serious doing attendance trackers? It's a brand new league, ffs. Who cares what the attendance is this season.

    Best point to start doing it. It can be a good way to track the health of the league and if you don’t track it in the first season you can’t determine that accurately.

    No attendance given on the league's website for the Calgary game.

    ^ You beat me to it! :)

    They just updated. 4000 (although a suspiciously round number) isn't too bad but isn't great, either, especially for a rivalry match. The rain certainly didn't help.

    It was a very good house considering the rain and how cold it was on a sat night (plus a long weekend)...I was there and the people were super excited & into the whole match..hopefully we get better weather tomorrow night as its still cold & raining as I type this.

    This brings up a question I have about how the CPL reports attendance.

    If they are reporting tickets distributed or tickets sold then this is a very disappointing number. This game should have been sold out weeks ago and not been dependent on walk ups who look at the weather.

    If they are reporting turnstile count, then it is not as bad as some fans may have had tickets but stayed home due to weather despite the historic nature of this game.

    Does anyone know the attendance number for the May 22 Canadian Championship 2nd leg game between Cavalry FC v Pacific FC from Spruce Meadows?? I haven't found any number myself.

    Try tweeting at Cavalry FC. Back in the day when we actually tracked MLS attendances, that would sometimes work if everything else failed.

    Anyone else having the problem that the CPL website won't load the attendance portion of the game reports?
