The NWSL's Orlando Pride are expecting ~30,000 fans for their home opener on April 23 at the Citrus Bowl. This would break the NWSL record set by Portland(21,144) for largest crowd. The Pride have also sold over 7,000 season tickets. With two weeks to go, the Pride is contemplating opening a small section of the upper bowl to fill demand.

If this MLS-NWSL partnership is the key to the NWSL's long term success, I think expansion teams in Salt Lake City & San Jose(among others) will be in the immediate future.

23,404 was the final count I believe. Great for the future of the NWSL!

this also makes me believe that if any MLS club wants a NWSL team, they'll be fast-tracked into getting one. I'd say it's only a matter of how soon the NWSL announces Salt Lake City as an expansion team for 2017.

Comparing the MLS owned teams vs. the non-MLS owned teams is such a big difference. I wouldn't mind down the road if the Red Bulls buy SkyBlue & other MLS buy their NWSL counterparts(Chicago, Boston, Washington, Kansas City, Seattle). Western New York is the only NWSL team in a non-MLS city. Here's each teams home opener attendance. WNY has their opener

ATTENDANCE
1. Orlando - 23,404
2. Portland - 16,073
3. Kansas City - 8,022
4. Houston - 7,440
5. Seattle - 3,987
6. Boston - 3,743
7. Washington - 3,578
8. SkyBlue - 2,571
9. Chicago - 2,529
