[CROWD COUNT]Wednesday's game between the LA Galaxy and Manchester United drew 84,632 fans at the Rose Bowl for their international friendly dubbed the Chevrolet Cup. It's the largest crowd of the year to date for a match in the United States.

Top U.S. Crowds: 2013

The all-time record for a U.S. soccer crowd should be set next week when Manchester United plays Real Madrid in Ann Arbor, Mich., where the crowd should break the record of 101,799 fans for the 1984 Olympic gold-medal match between France and Brazil at the Rose Bowl.



Of the 20 largest crowds to date, eight involve the Seattle Sounders and six involve the Mexico national team. Eight are MLS games, seven pre-World Cup friendlies, three Mexico friendlies played earlier in the year and two summer friendlies.
