Seattle Sounders looking to better MLS attendance record

Second-year MLS club Seattle Sounders are looking to better the average attendance record they set last season.

Second-year MLS club Seattle Sounders are looking to better the average attendance record they set last season.

The Sounders have already sold over 30,000 season ticket packages for 2010 and although they will cap numbers at 32,000, it looks certain they will beat 2009’s average of 30,943 fans per home game.

“Our fans demonstrated their passion and commitment to the team by creating one of the best home-field advantages in all the MLS," said Sounders FC owner Joe Roth. "They took their match-day role very seriously and renewed their season tickets at a 96 percent rate."

Last year, Seattle capped their season ticket sales at 22,000 so an increase of 10,000 in just one season is an enormous achievement.
