Crowd Count: Strong MLS attendances follow U.S. World Cup exit

Despite the USA's elimination from the World Cup, eight of MLS's 11 games drew announced crowds above 20,000 and all matched or exceeded the home team's season average.

Sunday's 11 games averaged 25,173, pushing the league's season average to 21,918.

With Atlanta United assured of breaking it MLS single-game record next Sunday, MLS should easily break its season record of 21,692 set in 2016.

-- The NASL's Jacksonville Armada drew its largest crowd of the season since Robert Palmer took over as owner, drawing 4,967 fans for its match against North Carolina FC.
