What do you guys find is a normal attendance for friendlies in level VI USA?
Depnds on some facotrs.
2. Your team-good, bad, or ugly
3. The other teams
In some friendlies I had 100 people show up and recently I have been getting 1-2000k people showing up.
Just takes time really.
It depends on many factors. But between two US teams, both in V and VI, I wouldn't expect much beyond maybe 2K or so. And usually it will be much lower, like under a thousand. The key to higher attendance in friendlies is to have a higher level team visit the lower level team and to schedule internation friendlies.
Don't take it as an insult that no one is showing up for your friendlies.
I had 128 for an away friendly last night
Ouch. that is harsh. had the host lost a few games? That would be a logical conclusion for that low an attendance.
Last year when I was in VI my home friendly attendance topped out at a little over 1300. I also got crowds of about 1270, 800, and 500.
Here have been my recent friendly attendances (most recent first):
home vs team from Poland: 1237
home vs team from Poland: 2084
home vs team from Japan: 2602
away vs team from Finland: 631
home vs team from Nigeria: 1002
If there's not something to bring people in (e.g. a higher-division foreign squad), in good conditions I think the rule of thumb is somewhere in the ballpark of your supporter club size (although I think it probably runs a bit higher than that).
My last 5 friendly crowds have been
2772 (International away)
598 (International away)
2208 (Internation away)
2231 (Same Country away)
982 (Same Country Home)
