Here is the final listing of 2016 MLS attendance. These MLS attendance numbers cover regular-season games held in 2016, as reported by teams.
|2||Orlando City SC||31,324||532,500||17|
|9||New York Red Bulls||20,620||350,535||17|
|11||San Jose Earthquakes||19,930||338,816||17|
|12||Real Salt Lake||19,759||335,909||17|
This MLS attendance listing is compiled from official MLS game reports, posted on the league’s website. We don’t list sellouts or % of capacity, as these are rather fluid measures. For instance, the Camping World Stadium seats 70,000, but Orlando City SC sells tickets only to the lower sections of the stadium. This is a good move — it creates a certain level of intimacy in a larger stadium built for big events — but with ability to open up sections of the stadium as needed, there’s really no firm number for a sellout. Also, not every match takes place at a team’s home pitch: the numbers can be skewed by “home” games at a much larger venue, such as Olympic Stadium or Levi’s Stadium.
