    I think they just say 20865 on the stadium announcer and tv announcers repeated it.

    You would think that there would be enough interest to bring in the temp seating behind to goal (23k-24k capacity), but 20,865 isn't bad.

    The 20865 is about a thousand above capacity. They sold a lot of SRO seats. They only bring in the temp bleachers when they know well in advance the game will be sold out, ie US-MEX.

    Were Cincinnati fans limited to how much they could buy? You would think if any game, this would be the one that would be sold out in advance to put up the temp bleachers.

    Either way nice crowd, hopefully this is the start of many more 20k+ crowds.

    Sure, but I think they'd prefer not to max out the number of visiting fans.

    Fans in the Charger temp seats, must be a sell out.

    I know it's raining in Portland, but there are a lot of empty seats.

    1.That was never a problem in the past.
    2.Some of those empty seats are covered by a roof.
