We’re seeing the beginning of a potentially strong fall for the 2019 MLS attendance, as the league is still looking at a 3 percent decline from 2018 on a per-match average. Some of the decline is understandable (Minnesota United moving to a smaller venue), and we expect other declines to be addressed in the offseason (Montreal, New England).
