2022 NWSL attendance

NWSLAnother above-average week in 2022 NWSL attendance for Week 3 of the regular season, as good Portland, Washington and San Diego crowds paced the numbers.

Six games were originally on the schedule, but bad weather forced the postponement of the NJ/NY Gotham FC opener at Red Bull Arena.

We should note that although this is the beginning of the 2022 regular season, we have seen many matches played under the umbrella of preseason tournament. NWSL will play this season at 12 teams following expansion into Los Angeles and San Diego. We have based this ranking on numbers officially posted to the NWSL website, team websites and newspaper reports.

These numbers are current as of May 15, 2022.
