Sounders' Attendance Was 4th Largest In World This Weekend

If 64,140 people watching a soccer match sounds like a lot, well, that's because it is. The Seattle Sounders' announced attendance for Saturday's game against the San Jose Earthquakes ended up being the fourth largest in the world this weekend.

The only matches that were played in front of more people were the games at giants Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich. The Rome derby was expected to draw more as well, but attendance was capped at 60,000. The Sounders outdrew every match in England, France and Italy this weekend.

The match will also go down in MLS history as the third highest attended standalone match. Only the first MLS game to be played in Southern California and David Beckham's first game in New York drew more people.
