[MLS ATTENDANCE]  After 116 games, the MLS attendance for the season broke the 2 million mark. For MLS attendance rankings ...

* With the high-drawing Pacific Northwest trio on road, Week 12 attendance dipped to 14,657 and 2011 the league-wide season attendance average fell to 17,244 -- just below the 17,406 mark for the highest full season average, set in MLS's inaugural 1996 season.
