One version of early 2016/2017 data can be found here. It's incomplete, though, as it's missing one Burnley match, and keep in mind Liverpool have not yet hosted a match in their recently expanded stadium.

It says in the title that all draw more than 46,000 except the #20 team clearly does not.

That could take to total to nine over 50k: four in London, two each in Manchester and Liverpool, one in Newcastle. Sunderland also have a stadium that could be 48k if they can come up with a football team good enough to fill it. Of our bigger cities only Birmingham seems unable to join the club. Glasgow also has three stadia that can be over 50k, but lack enough matches of sufficient interest.

This period is for the PL similar to rebuilding in Germany for the 2006 World Cup.

We are 4 days away from the Battle At Bristol. US college football game between University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech University. Crowd of over 150,000 expected.

Unless certain sections were closed off I'm really disappointed by this figure. It's a marquee match-up in a venue most football fans would love to see (during a game that matters), and yet the Badger faithful couldn't muster up a full house?! Perhaps I was overrating them.

Still a great marching band, though.

I've a feeling it will be a while before we see anything physical from Chelsea and Everton, however. The formal apparently underestimated the weight and bureaucracy of the London development process while the latter is toiling in an economic twilight zone. I'm hopeful, but suspect nothing will break ground on either front for a solid 3 years out.

More of a head-scratcher than your Sunderland nod considering the pedigree of the Villa name. I think Wolves beautiful designs would only max out around 45k, no? Regardless, they're both a ways out from investing as needed to see something over the 46k mark. I'd love to see a larger and refined Villa Park, though.

Three venues but only 2 clubs that could pull it off, so no need to raise Hampden/Queen's Park, I say.

I'll admit, I'm curious.

It's also only a 5 team league. Can't see it making much of an impact TBH.
The season is now over and it drew 51,696 over the 30 games for an average of 1723.

So not much of an impact and in the world of pro team sports in the US it's not even a blip.

In Rugby terms, it's not that far behind the 2nd tier in England though, which averaged 2064 last season.

I always find it odd when some UK rugby fans talk of Rugby becoming bigger than football (soccer to our American cousins) in the US, as it's played at college level.

They seem to have no idea how big the MLS is now, or how small Rugby is as a spectator sport.

It will be interesting to see if it can grow in terms of teams and/or crowds in the future.

Part of this might be how they're seeing their own sport grow compared to a couple generations ago, with wider global appeal and more professional opportunities. From outside looking in it's tough to discern how insular is the culture for US sports.

I think you meant Texas Tech friend. It's good to see all of them drawing so well to start the season. Hopefully Texas and Houston can keep it up this year.

The US National Womens Soccer League deserves some recognition. The Portland Thorns have higher attendance than a couple of the MLS teams.

Portland Thorns FC - 16,819
Orlando Pride - 9,201
Houston Dash - 5,651
Seattle Reign FC - 4,590
Western New York Flash - 3,868
Washington Spirit - 3,864
Boston Breakers - 3,780
FC Kansas City - 3,258
Chicago Red Stars - 3,033
Sky Blue FC - 1,973

League average: 5,503

It depends what your criteria are. MLS, however good the attendance numbers, is way behind other global leagues.

Rugby has far less support nearly everywhere (New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and, to a lesser extent, Australia). The US, though, has potential to become a serious contender because it has the population and because there is a large pool of unfulfilled talent left over from American Football. There are some incredible athletes not good enough for the NFL who could be part of a high quality rugby side.

I remember watching club rugby on some obscure channel when I lived in LA in the 1990s, mostly west coast and mountain zone clubs. There is raw talent there. The introduction of Rugby Sevens into the Olympics could also help.

Rangers actually managed the highest average attendance in Scotland last season despite not being in the top division!

Thanks for the info. The league does look small on a general scale but for rugby things are more relative. If a decently functioning pro league helps American rugby to suddenly rise to the top, American audiences will back a strong national team during big events, given what I understand about American sports culture. And that would create a virtuous circle.

If this league pays the US average wage then it can have all the best Tier 2 talent and more, if they want to go that way. There aren't many places to play for a decent living wage if you're a player, in the Romanian rugby millieus it's said that a lot of players are eyeing this US league for potential contracts.
