I'm not that informed on all the nuts and bolts of running a soccer league, so I was wondering whether a league could survive if the average attendance were not to grow more than what it is now? If it didn't grow, what would it take to make it work? Could it survive with 16 teams and 14,000 attendance? I would think it could, but obviously, teams might have to scale back their plans for spending on world-class players. How much could they spend on players, and still stay solvent? Would they have to concentrate on up and coming American players instead? Would that actually be better for US soccer? Would survival be contingent on having your own SSS? Jersey sponsorship?
