Back in the day–defined, in this case, as circa 1977-1981–the New York Cosmos played before 30,000+ fans for 70 consecutive home matches. Since midway through their inaugural 2009 season, the Seattle Sounders have tallied 61 consecutive matches drawing crowds of 30,000+ fans. (When their stadium first opened, it was limited to a seating capacity of 29,000.)
If things continue as such, their streak will reach 70 at a July 20 game against Colorado and then 71 at a July 28 game against Chivas.
Pretty impressive stuff. For more Sounders-vs-Cosmos attendance facts and figures, check out Roger Allaway’s full blog post. If you’d like to simply pick up a Seattle Sounders pin or pin of any MLS soccer team, well, just click the link!
