It hasn’t taken long for FC Cincinnati to start making noise in the world of American soccer. On the heels of drawing an impressive 14,658 for their inaugural home match earlier this season, they went and set a USL attendance record of 20,947 in their second home match vs. Louisville City.
For comparison, in 2015 the overall USL attendance averaged 3,332 fans per game, while MLS teams averaged 21,546 fans.
With the next round of MLS expansion talks heating up, with the likes of Sacramento, San Antonio, Las Vegas, and St. Louis vying for the next four spots in the league, Cincinnati has firmly thrown itself into the mix.
