Don't look now, but Major League Soccer now has a marquee fanbase.
For the second game in a row, the Seattle Sounders FC were able to generate impressive numbers at the gate. While last weekend's crowd of 55,718 for their 2-0 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps was slightly down from the 60,928 that saw the Sounders defeat the Los Angeles Galaxy earlier this month, it is still good for the second-highest attendance of any MLS game this season. Both games also cracked the top 20 list of the highest-attended games in the history of the league.
And keep in mind, the Sounders did this during back-to-back regular season home games.
