[MLS ATTENDANCE] The New England Revolution drew its biggest crowd of the season by far for a loss to the Los Angeles Galaxy. The Northwest trio drew big crowds as usual in Week 11, the third straight week in which league-wide average attendance for the season increased. For MLS attendance rankings ...

* The New England crowd of 21,793 that saw the Revs lose, 1-0, to the Los Angeles Galaxy -- on a Miguel Lopez header set up by David Beckham -- marked the Revs' biggest crowd of the season by 7,607. The previous high in 2011 at Gillette Stadium was for the Revs' last home game; 14,186 for a 1-0 win over Vancouver.

* The Galaxy has the highest road attendance average: 23,784 for nine games.

* The 2011 leaguewide season attendance average of 17,478 after 11 weeks of action is higher than the 17,406 mark for the highest full season average, set in MLS's inaugural 1996 season.

* Portland lost its first home game after winning all previous five at Jeld-Wen Field but extended its streak of sellouts when 18,627 came for its 3-2 loss to D.C. United. The league's two other Pacific Northwest teams drew well once again: Seattle (36,026) and Vancouver (21,000).

    Goes to show u,, soccer is a warm weather sport in the US for the most part..the Crowds come out more, like in baseball. I don't its even feasible for MLS to go to a normal fifa calender, unless we do it like the Mexican league
