All-Time MISL Attendance

Here are attendance figures for the original Major Indoor Soccer League, which played from 1978 to 1992. The league was known simply as the Major Soccer League its last two seasons. There are a few stray games missing, which may never be found, but this is as complete a record as we have. The assistance of the tireless research of Rich Paschette is gratefully acknowledged.

Each team’s regular-season record is also included, with that season’s league champion noted with a # next to their record. Note no club won the championship and led the league in average announced attendance over the course of the MISL’s history.
