Atlanta's MLS-record crowd registers as 4th largest attendance in the world

They've done it again.

For the second time this season MLS expansion side Atlanta United registered the fourth largest soccer attendance in the world.

And that crowd was only topped by crowds at Manchester United's Old Trafford, Borussia Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park and Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena.

Back in March, Atlanta's Week 1 attendance of 55,927 at Bobby Dodd Stadium also ranked fourth in the world behind FC Barcelona, Manchester United Borussia Dortmund home games.
