Real Madrid: and Barcelona play separate pre-season games in the U.S. and draw a combined 137,000+. In pre-season. In America. The Barcelona-Club America/Houston Dynamo-LA Galaxy doubleheader set a record for largest soccer attendance in Texas at 70,500. I know I'm probably opening a can of worms here: any American non-soccer fans surprised? Anyone from our UK/Ireland/Rest of Europe (aka Italy in SpoFi-speak) contingent surprised?
