[MLS]All but one of the Los Angeles Galaxy's six road games this season have drawn more than 20,000 fans. The exception was the Galaxy's opener at Colorado's Dick's Sporting Goods Park, which was sold out at 18,713. For more on the David Beckham crowd pull and MLS attendance. ...

Los Angeles' home attendance is a league-leading 25,142. The Galaxy's away crowds have averaged 27,094, which is nearly 11,000 higher than this season's leaguewide attendance average.

The 35,979 at RFK Stadium for the Galaxy's 4-1 loss at D.C. United on Sunday was the third-highest MLS crowd of the season, behind Beckham's visit to Oakland, Calif., where the San Jose Earthquakes hosted the Galaxy before 39,872 fans June 14.

The MLS season's largest crowd was 54,045 at Gillette Stadium, where New England hosted FC Dallas in the first bill of a doubleheader with a Venezuela-Brazil friendly June 6.
