Comment ça-va, Real Salt Lake?
Trés bien, you'd have to say.
It appears that RSL is among the teams that has helped Major League Soccer outdraw Ligue 1 in France for the third straight week, according a blog post at Football.fr, the online version of the French sports magazine. The team drew 20,415 fans for its home loss to Chivas USA last weekend — thank you, Sounders, for your 38,304 — to contribute to a league average of 20,396 fans in nine games.
By comparison, Ligue 1 averaged 20,219 fans last weekend.
The magazine said that while MLS stadia were about 90 percent full last weekend, the French stadia were only about 78 percent full. It even posted a nice shot of the scene at Rio Tinto Stadium.
