Another average week on the 2023 NWSL attendance front in Week Nine, led by a healthy crowd for Washington Spirit and good crowds in San Diego and Chicago.
This season sees a little more stability for the league on the facilities front. Washington Spirit is set to play its entire home schedule at Audi Field–no more heading to the suburbs and Loudoun County for matches–while NJ/NY Gotham FC will play all home games at Red Bull Arena.
Overall, 2023 NWSL attendance is up 21 percent over 2022.
These 2023 NWSL attendance numbers for the regular season are current as of May 29, 2023, and drawn from the NWSL website as well as independent media reports.
