Looks as though the NBA is losing the attendance battle to…soccer? Somehow Major League Soccer (MLS) games have averaged a little over 17,000 a game this season. That’s a 6.6% bump from last season, according to the news site examiner.com.
That bump also pushed the soccer league into third in attendance among America’s major league sports. The NBA is now fourth and likely falling.
I don’t know, maybe someone is cooking the books here (bigger stadiums, less games in MLS etc…) but the message is clear: basketball is on the verge of destroying itself.
What would you rather watch?
