Kansas City Ticket Sales Dominating Other Cities On Manchester United Tour

So far Manchester United has visited Toronto and Philadelphia Major League Soccer teams to some larger-than-usual crowds. Obviously a team like Manchester United is going to draw lots of people but Kansas City is doing very, very well for itself.

The Wizards said Thursday that they have already sold more tickets (46,000) tickets for today’s game than the much-larger cities of Toronto (39,139) and Philadelphia (44,213) did on the first two stops of United’s five-city North American tour.

Here's the thing though: Philadelphia is the sixth largest city in the country.

Kansas City? 35th.

Sure, Kansas City may not have the size of Philly or Toronto, but as far as FIFA World Cup's attendance watch is concerned, Kansas City ranks above them.
