NBA Loses Its Spot As Third Best Attended US Pro Sports League

While the NBA (National Basketball Association) and owners continue to argue with each other and deal with the lockout. MLS (Major League Soccer) might not be the hottest topic on blogs or sports radios, but it has moved its way past the NBA in average attendance. MLS attendance has sky rocketed up 6.6% this season, which now makes it become the new #3 spot in US pro sports, based on per game attendance.

The NFL (National Football League) is the first for American sports fans. The #2 spot belongs to the MLB (Major League Baseball).
Many critics say that these statistics are misleading, since soccer stadiums are much larger than basketball arenas. Moreover, the basketball season is much longer than the soccer season. Which makes each game for soccer more significant to attend.
