[NASL: Fall Week 2] The Ottawa Fury is expected to break the NASL attendance mark Sunday when it plays its first game at 24,000-seat TD Place Sunday against the New York Cosmos.

The NASL attendance mark was set by the San Antonio Scorpions in 2012 when they drew 13,151 fans for their first home match at Heroes Stadium.

Fury FC played the spring season at Carleton University’s Keith Harris Stadium, where capacity was 3,044. TD Place will be one of the six venues for next year's Women's World Cup in Canada.

-- A first-half goal from Brazilian midfielder Daniel Mendes was all Minnesota United FC needed to extend its unbeaten streak to six games, defeating the Carolina RailHawks, 1-0, Thursday night before 7,287 fans at NSC Stadium.
