There's a new single-game attendance record for a regular-season match in MLS, with Atlanta United again at the forefront.


The Five Stripes drew 72,548 for Saturday’s home matchup against the LA Galaxy. The high-profile match brought together the defending MLS Cup champions and the five-time MLS Cup winners from the Western Conference.

The attendance figure broke Atlanta’s own record, which came on July 15, 2018 against the Seattle Sounders. In all, 72,243 fans came out for that clash.


Atlanta holds another single-game record, with 73,019 fans turning up for the 2018 MLS Cup against the Portland Timbers, the most for a playoff game.
