After an impressive Week 1, the schedule makers had their revenge with a slate of games that didn’t include any of the traditional league leaders in attendance — save Nashville, which has struggled at the gate in the early system. After two weeks it’s not fair to draw any conclusions on such a small sample, so that the numbers for what they are, After two weeks, 2019 USL Championship attendance is down 6 percent when compared to 2018.
