A great week for 2019 NWSL attendance, with the Portland Thorns setting a league record after drawing 25,218 fans to Providence Park.
Here are the season and weekly numbers for 2019 NWSL attendance in Week 17, as of Aug. 10:
|1||Portland Thorns FC||19,955||139,684||7||16,959||0.18||25,218|
|2||Utah Royals FC||10,992||98,932||9||9,466||0.16||7,715|
|3||Chicago Red Stars||5,931||47,451||8||4,004||0.48|
|9||Sky Blue FC||2,001||14,006||7||2,531||-0.21|
|*Total of two matches|
That attendance of 25,218 fans to Providence Park is not only a league record, but it represents a sellout for the Thorns, and it was a prime part of the best week of attendance for the NWSL this season. It’s pretty apparent that the World Cup boost continues.
