2021 USL Championship Attendance

El Paso Locomotive

Another thoroughly average week on the 2021 USL Championship attendance front, led by good crowds for Indy Eleven and El Paso.

Of the 18 games where teams reported attendance figures this week, the league reported an average of 3,520 fans per game–virtually the same as last week, and virtually the same as the season average. These 2021 USL Championship attendance numbers are not complete. We have based this ranking on numbers officially posted to the USL Championship website, as well as newspaper coverage. Several teams have not released attendance for any games, so we do not include LA Galaxy II or Sporting KC II in these rankings. The total attendance for USL Championship this season is higher than our total, but the per-game average is likely lower.
