2019 NWSL Attendance

Week 1 of 2019 NWSL attendance features two strong starts and two slow starts, as good crowds in Orlando and Houston paced the numbers.

Here are the numbers for the four reported matches in Week 1 of 2019 NWSL attendance, as of April 14:

  Team Av. Totals Gms 2018 YoY Week 1

Four matches does not a season make, so we’re not going to draw any conclusions about the first week of play. Still, it’s good to see good numbers posted in Orlando and Houston. North Carolina was a slow starter in 2018, as was Washington, so you can expect some bigger numbers posted as the season rolls along.
