Of course, we all know that the NFL had very poor attendance for the first 25 years of its existence. In it’s first year, MLS was triple the attendance of the NFL in the 1930s.

Soccer has the advantage of being an established sport with a huge global following. Soccer-specific stadiums give the leauge an image of having a long-term plan. MLS teams are no longer playing in rented stadiums – now they rent out their venues! The Div I-AA football championship will be played in Pizza Hut park for the next 3 years. It’s a good plan for MLS.
