A great comeback in Week 25 after a poor prior week in the 2017 NASL attendance numbers, with the total fans per game pushing up the yearly numbers.
Here is the 2017 NASL attendance to date:
|3||New York Cosmos||4,757||61,839||13||4,229|
|4||North Carolina FC||4,291||55,781||13||5,027|
|6||Puerto Rico FC||3,401||37,411||11|
|8||San Francisco Deltas||2,453||26,979||11|
Last week — Week 24 — was essentially a throwaway week on the 2017 NASL attendance front. (The total numbers do include a Week 24 crowd in Edmonton, which was unreported in last week’s numbers.) But Week 25 showed there is still life in the circuit despite some recent bad news regarding Division II status for 2018. (Indeed, rumors abound regarding what teams may be looking at a departure for 2018. Should make for an interesting offseason.) This week’s numbers raised the season average to 4,395 fans per game, a little farther from the 2016 average attendance of 4,684. That’s actually good news for the league as a whole: Last season had some solid attendance numbers generated by Minnesota, Ottawa and Tampa Bay.
