Glad to see you missed literally the entire point of that post. Well done.
What did I miss? You bragged that you sold more tickets than NYC (we couldn't sell more, you have more seats), Chicago (they couldn't sell more, you have more seats), and a mythical Guiness ICC game in Boston (looks like Liverpool and AS played a friendly though). If you want to brag how amazing BOA was at least brag like Arsen did.
I'm sure players couldn't wait to leave New York just as well as Queen City. You'd be fooling yourself otherwise. Besides, New York has Giants stadium that fit way more people (82k)... Why choosing smaller Yankee stadium to host games? That's a lot of lost revenue...
Denver - Attendance 54k Capacity 76k
Washington, DC - Attendance 61k Capacity 79k
Texas - Attendance 57k Capacity 92k
Pittsburgh - Attendance 34k Capacity 66k
Chicago - Attendance 36k Capacity 64k
Minneapolis - Attendance 34k Capacity 50k
Big cities failed to sold out soccer games. The average attendance is around 50k. Charlotte... The Queen City... managed to get 70k attendance.
You might be prideful of New York and its good for you, not everyone enjoys New York city life with insane traffic jams and millions of tourists just come and go. Charlotte showed again and again that people here love sports and many people across United States love coming here to watch games. Charlotte is very clean, nice town with great southern hospitality and amazing weather. Suck on it, Yankee.
So now it's 70k? At least you bragged properly, lol. I'm not sure why they had it in Yankee Stadium and not the Meadowlands. Easier to get to I'd guess. And please, players cherish coming here (some for the first time). I bet they didn't even know where Charlotte was. What'd they do? Hang out in Uptown? Go to Buffalo Wild Wings? SCORE.
I lived in Charlotte for 18 years. I know how clean it is. I hated the weather. And it's very, very plain.
I'm guessing you took the word Yankee as an insult then...
Oh and Liverpool played in Boston against AS Roma. http://www.bostonmag...ch-fenway-park/
No, it just amazes me that you guys call people up here Yankees. It's not an insult. REDNECK is an insult. WHITE TRASH is too but we both have that. I guess you could throw out Guido? And yes, Boston did have a friendly, but not in the tournament this thread is about. Charlotte had one years back as well. Iceland versus Mexico I think.
