Atlanta United set to break own MLS single-game attendance record on Sunday

Atlanta United FC will break a couple of records when they host Toronto FC at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in their regular season finale on Sunday.

The expansion club will set the all-time MLS records for highest attendance in a single game and single season on Sunday.

Atlanta set the all-time single-game MLS attendance record on Sept. 16, when 70,245 fans attended their 3-3 draw against Orlando City. They surpassed that number of tickets sold for the TFC match two weeks ago.

Though the final number of tickets sold isn’t yet available, Sunday’s contest will push Atlanta well above the all-time MLS single-season attendance record of 752,199 set by the Seattle Sounders in 2015. The Five Stripes have sold 747,530 tickets through their first 16 home games, and should end the regular season with a total near 850,000.

Atlanta are currently in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. They can still climb to second and avoid the Knockout Round with a win against Toronto on Sunday coupled with draws or losses by NYCFC and Chicago
