ZK, surely you realize that without the tax incentives and benefits for companies investing in communities, the free market system as we know it would come to a grinding halt.

You may want to rethink your definition of “free market.”  Do you understand that I am the one actually making the free market argument here?

Hell Is Real Part 2 is upon us... This Sunday at Nippert FCC encounters the Columbus Crew. What a game that will be! 2 weeks ago in Columbus, FCC managed at 2-2 tie in a game they should've lost. The atmosphere was electric. (And the first sell-out for the Crew this year.) I'm sure Nippert will close to a sell-out too.

If you can't make it, the game will be on FoxSports 1 at 6 pm.

FCC has been terrible this year, but beating the Crew make up some of that.

From my non-business understanding, free market = no government intervention.

Tax breaks, incentives, etc. are government intervention.

In North Carolina, we have no MLS interest. Even though we are the 9th most populist state, we only have 2 major league sports teams: Carolina Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes. Locally, the NC Football Club, the WSL champions NC Courage, and the Durham Bulls are our summer sport draws. And we have a couple of college basketball teams that might as well be professional teams. That's where our sports loyalties are primarily focused.

Found some statistics: https://soccerstadiumdigest.com/2019-mls-attendance/ (average 12k - 53k)
Atlanta just has massive attendance compared to everyone else.

And other leagues
NFL: http://www.espn.com/nfl/attendance/_/year/2018 (average 32k - 91k)
MLB: http://espn.com/mlb/attendance (average 10k - 48k)
NHL: http://www.espn.com/nhl/attendance (average 12k - 22k)
NBA: http://www.espn.com/nba/attendance (average 15k- 20k)
Fun fact: Los Angeles has the highest average baseball attendance and the lowest average NFL attendance. In fact, on average, more go to Dodgers than Chargers games.

But the statistic that shows the real in person draw sport in the US? Top 30 college football (FBS) average attendance - 55k to 110k.
And that is with a total of 129 teams in the division.
