According to SoccerAmerica, the MetroStars rank only 5th in average attendance and are only slightly above the league average mark. I don't ever recall them being worse than 2nd in attendance. Are other teams following Nick's lead and fudging their numbers even more? Some reasons can be attributed to the novelty of playing at the Home Depot Center and some fan promotions that KC did earlier in the year. However, it doesn't completely explain the MetroStars drop in attendance in comparison to its' peers. With Dallas coming in to town on Saturday, the Metros could drop to the bottom half of the pack as I'm not sure even the Burn's spouse's would want to be seen in attendance. Why have the Metros slipped in attendance in 2003? MLS: Attendance Average TEAM: home attendance average 1. Los Angeles: 21,625 2. Colorado: 17,079 3. Kansas City: 16,101 4. Columbus: 16,025 5.
