It's not 66,000 but Cuauhtemoc Blanco had an affect yesterday in Kansas City's attendance. A crowd of 12,468 showed up to watch the Fire-Wizards match at Arrowhead Stadium.
At first, it doesn't seem like much but consider:
- It's the Wizards' second-highest attendance figure of the season.
- The only other game that drew more fans was the Red Bulls game on June 2 when 13,875 showed up; but that game was on a Saturday.
- Other midweek attendance figures from KC this season: 7,438 and 7,872.
