    Why are we still limiting the size of US stadiums to <20k? Orlando nearly halved the number of fans that wanted to see the game for their stadium, FC Cincinnati is pulling in 25k crowds regularly, Atlanta is pushing Seattle for the attendance record - we should be creating stadiums that are at the very least in the 25k-30k range.

    I agree....minimum should be at least 25,000 If Minnesota United become popular imagine the cost a few years down the road to add just 5,000 more seats.
