UPPER MONTCLAIR, N.J. – The Sept. 19 game at Red Bull Arena between New York and Sporting Kansas City drew an announced crowd of 10,286. But there were far fewer people to actually witness the 2-0 loss by the Red Bulls.

In addition, the mid-July day game geared towards campers was announced as 15,814 but had roughly 9,000 at the turnstile. Both numbers came from a league source.

The Red Bulls are averaging an announced attendance of 17,099, down from the 19,691 they averaged last year.
