Days after 1,200 fans traveled to Red Bull Arena for the first game of the Eastern Conference Final, club president Brian Bilello announced via Twitter that he’s expecting an impressive turnout for the return leg.
Lot's of attendance questons for me. We're already ahead of the last playoff game. We'll certainly be over 25,000 maybe over 30,000— Brian Bilello (@RevsPrez) November 25, 2014
According to the tweet, Saturday’s audience should surpass the 20,184 people that attended the semifinal. If true, the Revolution would set a new record in regards to tickets sold for a home playoff game.
Tickets for the spirited Fort, a nickname for sections 141-143, have already sold out and are being resold on Stub Hub. The cheapest general admission ticket currently being scalped is going for $57.67 plus fees. Tickets for other sections remain available through Ticketmaster.
This season has already proven to be a banner year for the Revolution as the team has made significant growth both on and off the field. The increased attendance numbers are a reward for this success.
