Also, I'm pretty sure the NHL and NBA average more fans than MLS

NHL and NBA have more teams, more games, and a higher total attendance, but MLS has a higher average attendance.

@cercoe: MLS averages about 1000 more than NBA and NHL. that is inflated though because only two arenas in the NHL have over 20,000 capacity (Bell Centre and Joe Louis) while MLS has a good chunk of them at 20,000+.

@cheesey explains why average 18000 fans care enough to go.

@zammy A few clubs still have non-soccer specific stadiums, so that's why there are some stadiums with high capacities (especially Century Link). You also have to remember though that the NHL/NBA have 11 more teams.

If by annual attendance you mean total attendance, then yes. MLB: 74,026,895 NFL: 17,304,343 Main factor is that the MLB has 2,172 more games than the NFL.
