Atlanta United captain Michael Parkhurst said he didn’t know what the split of the two clubs’ supporters will be in the stadium Wednesday. Atlanta United leads MLS in attendance for the third consecutive season with an average of more than 52,000 this season.
“We know we will have a lot of fans in the stadium,” he said. “Our fans are fantastic. They show up every game regardless of who we are playing and what the competition is. We aren’t naive. Club America has fans everywhere. We can appreciate that. But we are excited for the game. It’s going to be a great atmosphere regardless.”
