    Yes. Atlanta has three more full capacity games, Seattle has three or four full capacity games. I think Minnesota is going to get a couple of BIG crowds before moving into their new stadium. DC open their new stadium in a month and half, yeah I know it's only a 20K capacity, but they have averaged 8,800 for their two games this year. Teams like New England, NYRB, Philadelphia, FC Dallas, Real Salt Lake will improve before season ends (I think).

    I believe we will average 22,500+

    When will the expanded Timbers stadium be in effect? This year or next year?

    Between DC not playing home matches at a real stadium and Columbus fans boycotting their club to make the decision to move easier, this might be a really disappointing season in terms of attendance.

    Only five teams have seen an uptick in attendance this year, plus Portland maintaining their attendance at capacity.

    Really? That's why you think Columbus fans are boycotting?

    Next week could be a BIG attendance week, Atlanta (full capacity), Seattle plays Portland (not full capacity, yet) with 7 extra sections (so around 50,000-55,000), LAFC (sellout), Toronto (27,000-29,000), NYCFC visiting Chicago should get close to a sellout, New England playing DC United (20,000-22,000), Minnesota will get their usual 20,000-21,000 and Vancouver's 22,120. We could see an average for the week in the 27,000-30,000 range.

    I just realized the San Jose game is at Stanford stadium, so the average is going to be even better (30,000-31,000).
