Ughm, no not really. More Cavs fans here than 76ers, nice try

Does anyone even go to those games? I often drive by the stadium see the lights on and empty stands.

Stadium holds 5k+ and they average around 3k+, but there are times where there’s almost nobody there.

I also think the lights are used for practices, HS soccer events (which tend to draw only the parents of players and maybe a few students), and maybe a few other things besides actual matches.

What level of play is that soccer team if it were a baseball team? Single A, Double AA or what? Not really big into third world sports.

Much like the Pirates, the Riverhounds are a minor league team.
