I have a feeling Cincinnati is going to draw well.
And related to that, it seems like new/expansion teams get good crowds. ATL, Orlando, LAFC etc. Even Portland and the sounders were brought into the league in the 2000s.
Maybe its because it is are new and exciting for those fans? Unlike places like DC Columbus, Dallas or NJ, where the excitement seems to have faded.
Well those cities didnt have to deal with there just being 8 teams in the league, games being decided by shootouts, and lower quality of the late 90s-early 00s. Its easy to give them credit for having great crowds but its also easy to enter an established league
