A significant attendance record was set over the weekend, as Louisville City FC drew over 13,000 fans to Saturday’s match at Louisville Slugger Field.
Facing off against FC Cincinnati, Louisville City FC achieved a milestone by welcoming a club-record 13,812 fans. Those in attendance were treated to a Louisville victory, with the club defeating Cincinnati by a final of 5-0.
The latest development is reflective of the organization’s track record over the years, as Louisville City FC has been a steady draw since playing its first season in the USL in 2015. That trend has continued into 2017, and Saturday’s contest was not only marked by the strong turnout from the team’s fan base, but also by an atmosphere that made an impression on the club’s players. More from the Courier-Journal:
Louisville City reset its club attendance record for the second time in four weeks, cramming nearly 3,000 more fans into Louisville Slugger Field than the previous record. The result was an atmosphere [Luke] Spencer described as “unreal.”
The feeling is slowly becoming less foreign to Louisville City players as public interest in the club continues to tick upwards – especially when playing against FC Cincinnati.
Overall, 2017 has been a strong year for Louisville City FC when it comes to attendance. Through week 21 of the regular season, the club has posted a per-game average attendance of 9,281 in nine home matches, and has an overall figure of 83,533.
