Our season was mostly over when the markets crumbled last fall, so we have yet to see how the new sucky economy is going to affect attendance at MLS games. So far, I seen bits and pieces of news about unsold suites in Yankee Stadium and Cowboys Stadium. Currently there's a thread on N&A about Dallas' poor opening day sales. Is that a product of the economy, or just poor sales and marketing? (I would rather not see this discussion devolve into an argument about central vs suburban stadiums) Should we be expecting empty stadiums like we have been seeing in the NBA in places like Minneapolis, Memphis and Atlanta. Or are we going to stay consistent with previous seasons? Here's what I will guess. Seattle 27,000 Los Angeles 21,000 Toronto 20,000 Salt Lake 17,000 DC United 17,000 Chicago 16,000 Houston 15,000 New York 14,000 Columbus 14,000 Chivas USA 12,000 Colorado 12,000 New England 12,000 Dallas 11,000 San Jose 10,000 Kansas City 9,000 I expect a minor dip in attendance generally across the board, with Seattle and Toronto showing strong. Salt Lake will have a slight bump. Los Angeles will take the biggest dive, because they are the most expensive tickets in the league (+ no Beckham and they kind of suck).
