Although the Revolution may be playing inspired soccer this season, one thing that hasn’t looked good in 2012 is the team’s home attendance record.

According to a report from Soccer America, the Revolution currently sit at the bottom of the league’s attendance table, with an average attendance of 11,657 10,389 through its first two home games. Last year, the Revolution averaged 13,222 fans per game.

The 11,657 average is well below the league average of 19,490 through the first six weeks of the season. Although cold, early-spring temperatures have often been blamed for low, early-season attendance figures in the past, both of the Revolution’s home games have kicked off with the thermometer registering 55 degrees or above.

Meanwhile, the Montreal Impact are experiencing the expected expansion bump in its first two games, with an average of 41,016 fans to lead the league in average attendance. Rounding out the top three is Seattle (38,549) and Los Angeles (22,233).
