"The crowd last night was 7,767, appreciably low for a Sounders match. Pointing out the low number isn’t a criticism. Rather, it’s to say this:
When the lowest of lows at CenturyLink Field still approaches 10,000, it’s more evidence of how great the support is around that town. Because this match-up – a team most domestic fans surely have never heard of – would have been fortunate to draw a legitimate 3,000 in many MLS markets."
