[BY THE NUMBERS] Without such big draws as Barcelona and Manchester United on tour, crowds were down for the summer series of international matches.
Only two games drew announced crowds of more than 50,000: Chelsea-AC Milan (57,748) at Miami's Sun Life Stadium, and Seattle Sounders-Chelsea (53,309) on the first day of the summer series.
Last summer, five international club exhibitions, all involving Manchester United and/or Barcelona, drew more than 60,000.
It is worth noting that three MLS games -- two hosted by the Montreal and the third hosted by the Seattle Sounders -- have drawn more fans this year than the Chelsea-AC Milan game did in Miami.
A few other strong crowds were the Chelsea-Paris SG and Real Madrid-AC Milan matches at the new Yankee Stadium in New York, the Liverpool-Roma game at Boston 's Fenway Park and a Liverpool-Tottenham game in Baltimore that drew more than 40,000 fans.
On the other hand, a sparse crowd turned out for the AC Milan-Olimpia game as part of a doubleheader with the Revs' MLS game at Gillette Stadium and less than 30,000 were on hand for the Real Madrid-Santos game in Las Vegas, the homecoming of Santos' American star, Herculez Gomez.
More international matches involved MLS clubs this summer, while less featured Mexican clubs as sparring partners.
