2022 USL Championship Attendance

Another above-average week for 2022 USL Championship attendance in Week 29, led by solid crowds for Louisville City, Indy Eleven and Colorado Springs matches.

Overall, 2022 USL Championship attendance is up some 27 percent over 2021 numbers, a season impacted by COVID-19 and early-season capacity limitations.

This season sees a reduced lineup of 27 teams after several MLS teams pulled their affiliates and some USL Championship paused operations after a hard two years. Still, the 27 teams remaining presents a pretty formidable lineup, and we expect strong 2022 USL Championship attendance numbers throughout the season. We have based this ranking on numbers officially posted to the USL Championship website‘s schedule page as well as newspaper coverage.

These numbers are current as of Sept. 25, 2022.
