The numbers now reflect an OKC Energy FC crowd originally unreported on the USL website. In addition, due to an editing error, last week’s total reported attendance did not include a Reno 1868 FC match. We regret the error.
As you can see, the top five draws in the USL were at home, and every team put up very good numbers. FC Cincinnati attracted another strong crowd during Week 13 of 2017 USL attendance, Sacramento Republic FC noticed another sellout, and we saw strong crowds for Louisville City, Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio FC, Rochester Rhinos and Charlotte Independence.
The reported season average is now at 4,386 fans per game, but that’s not counting an unreported OKC Energy crowd. That’s well above last year’s average reported attendance of 3,439. Overall, the weekly total was the highest of the season.
