If demand takes prices higher, that could push the average resale price above the $335 of last year's MLS Cup, despite the much smaller 30,000 capacity of BMO Field.
Atlanta has already drawn more than 70,000 fans to both its home playoff games in 2018, setting a single-game playoff attendance record in the process. This year's regular-season average attendance of just over 53,000 was good for an MLS record.
