A partial schedule and some below-average crowds led to another decline when it came to 2017 NASL attendance in Week 9, as the three matches on the schedule yielded a below-average number of fans.
Here is the 2017 NASL attendance to date:
|3||North Carolina FC||4,855||19,419||4|
|4||New York Cosmos||4,040||12,119||3|
|6||Puerto Rico FC||3,437||17,183||5||2,367|
|8||San Francisco Deltas||2,844||11,375||4||2,201|
The 12,007 fans at three matches yielded an average of 4,002 fans per game. The 2017 NASL attendance average is still at par with the 2016 average attendance of 4,684, though the Week 9 average of 4,002 fans per game (higher than last week’s 3,872 per game) was far below both the 2017 and 2016 averages. It was a mixed week, to be sure: Indy Eleven, Puerto Rico FC and San Francisco Deltas all saw their season average per game go down. With Indy Eleven attendance down and Minnesota United competing in MLS, the NASL numbers are suffering this season.
