  15. ^ The stadium's full capacity is 67,000, but the Sounders tarp off the upper decks and north end zone. The team initially planned to sell tickets only in the lower bowl along the sidelines (touchlines), with a normal capacity of 24,500. Higher-than-expected demand for tickets led them first to open more of the lower bowl for Sounders games, providing a capacity of 27,700, and then open the south end zone, making the capacity 32,400. With virtually all 2009 home games selling out even with this capacity, the team announced that it would open more of the stadium for the 2010 season.
  16. ^ The stadium is set to be renovated for the Timbers. The final capacity has not been announced, but planning documents indicate that the maximum capacity will be about 22,000, with 17,000 of the seats being used on a regular basis.
  17. ^ At present, the team has not announced how much of the stadium's capacity it will use for regular matches.
  18. ^ Empire Fields is a temporary stadium on the Pacific National Exhibition grounds that will be used by both the Whitecaps and the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League while BC Place Stadium is being renovated. The BC Place project is not scheduled to be complete until sometime during the 2011 MLS season.
  19. ^ Portion used by MLS, full NFL capacity: 65,857
