MLS Stadium Experience Rankings

by Paul Swaney - Nov 21, 2014 9:58 AM EST

Major League Soccer saw average attendance in 2014 reach an all-time high, with more than 19,000 attending each match on average. You should expect that number to continue to grow with the folding of Chivas USA during the 2014 season, and the addition of New York City FC and Orlando City SC in 2015. Most important for stadium travel enthusiasts though, is that the experience of attending an MLS game continues to get better. This should also improve as the San Jose Earthquakes will move into their new home, Avaya Stadium, next season. It truly is a great time to be a soccer fan in the United States and Canada.

This season, the correspondents of Stadium Journey re-reviewed 11 of the 18 venues in MLS. Next season we'll continue our coverage by visiting the two expansion franchises as well as the seven we didn't see in 2014. We compile our rankings of stadium experience based on the components of our FANFARE rating scale which takes into account the food & beverage in the stadium, the overall atmosphere, the neighborhood where the stadium is located, the fans, access (which includes parking, traffic, ability to move within the stadium, and restrooms), the overall return on investment (is it worth the price?), and one catchall category for anything unique about the stadium experience. We utilize the ratings of our readers and members as our primary tiebreaker, and we encourage you to share your experiences and rate the venues you have visited.


Stadium Journey Binge: Seattle

Stadium Journey Binge: Seattle

by Josh Eastern - Nov 20, 2014 11:10 AM EST

College basketball is starting to heat up while college football is winding down their regular season. This makes this time of year a great time for packing in the opportunity to see several venues in one weekend in one city. Even though Seattle doesn't have an NHL or NBA team, that doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of sporting events to attend.

This weekend in Seattle is one of the last weekends of overlap for college basketball, college football, and the NFL. This is really one of the only weekends that it happens all year, which makes for a fun weekend of Seattle sports at different venues. On Friday, the 21st there is a college basketball game followed by a college football game on the Saturday, and lastly followed by an NFL game on the 23rd.

If you can, make the trip to the Emerald City for a great sports weekend.
