Atlanta United expects 13th consecutive sellout

Atlanta United has yet to announce that Wednesday’s game against Los Angeles Galaxy in Mercedes-Benz Stadium is sold out, but a team spokesman said they expect to reach capacity of 42,500.

It would be the team’s 13th consecutive sellout, including its fourth at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The team set an MLS single-game attendance record of 70,425 tickets sold in last week’s 3-3 draw with Orlando City.

Atlanta United leads the league in attendance with an average of 47,926 tickets sold per game.  The team is on pace to set the league record for highest average home attendance of 44,247 set by Seattle in in 2015.

Wednesday’s game will be the fourth at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 11 days.
