Real Salt Lake a hot ticket in Utah

MOST COMMENTED

Despite going head-to-head with two college football games along the Wasatch Front, including the state's overshadowing BYU-Utah rivalry, Real Salt Lake rang up a victory, and not just on the field, explains Justin Johnson.

With 63,742 packed into Provo's LaVell Edwards Stadium for the Utes-Cougars clash, along with a national television broadcast on ESPN2, and another 8,362 at Ogden's Stewart Stadium for the Weber State-Sacramento State game, Real Salt Lake proved it has drawing power all its own.

Its 1-0 win over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday was its third sellout of the season with a standing room-only crowd of 19,888 packing into Rio Tinto Stadium to witness its fourth consecutive victory.

"For us to have a standing-room only crowd of 19,888 on a Saturday night during college football season might be surprising to some, but not to us," RSL spokesman Trey Fitz-Gerald said. "Last fall, we sold out a home game on a day when both Utah and BYU also hosted games, and have sold out in the past head-to-head with a Jazz playoff game as well."
