Wanted to out some perspective on the 64,000 Seattle Sounders fans who came out for Kasey keller’s farewell game.
The Seattle Sounders crowd was the fourth largest crowd to watch a soccer match anywhere in the world on Saturday night. Only FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich had larger attendances.
And this was not a one-off attendance in Seattle as the Sounders have averaged 36,893 fans a game this season. By comparison, only 8 of the 20 Premier League sides have averaged more fans this season than Seattle and only 5 of the 20 La Liga sides.
If you missed the tifo display by Sounders fans in honor of Keller, you’ll want to watch the video below:
