I'm also in the camp that we were never getting real arena updates besides the scoreboard. There's no reason not to announce these things unless you're full of shit and aren't doing them. Regular season is over in like 3 months lol
The attendance for every nycfc vs red bulls game has been less and less for each regular season game. Even more so for the games at Yankee stadium where the drop offs are really noticeable.
Red Bull claims all the games were sold out so no reason to post the figures but anyone that was actually at the games in 2017 and 2018 know they weren't legit sold out.
These numbers show a bigger drop off and I'm expecting under 30k for the August game. I personally hate going there and I haven't gone back since 2016 and I never plan to go back unless it's a knockout game.
June 2015 - 48,047
May 2016 - 37,858
July 2016 - 33,613
August 2017 - 33,679
July 2018 - 30,027
August 2018 - 30,139
Agreed. Attendance has definitely dipped. I actually think the DC game drew a better crowd than the Boy City game last year.
