2022 USL Championship Attendance

We have incomplete numbers for Week 10 on the 2022 USL Championship attendance front, with several teams not yet reporting attendance and one match postponed due to weather.

We will keep an eye on the numbers and update this week as needed.

Overall, 2022 USL Championship attendance is up some 24 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 judging by these early-season numbers, 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 May 15, 2022.
