The Seattle Dragons continue to dominate the XFL in attendance.
Just days after the Dragons set a league record with 29,172 in attendance at their home opener against the Tampa Bay Vipers, Seattle has surged past 10,000 in season-ticket sales, according to a report from The Seattle Times.
“We have had a spike in demand and we surged past 10,000 season tickets, which is an awesome story for us and the most in the league,” Dragons president Ryan Gustafson told the Seattle Times. “We’re continuing to build it every day. We’re grateful for the support we’ve gotten so far and excited to continue to build this, not just for this year but many years to come.”
As we mentioned earlier this week, the presence of former Seahawks, like receiver Kasen Williams and tackle Isaiah Battle, as well as players with Pacific Northwest ties, appears to have benefited the Dragons franchise.
XFL attendance increased across the league from Week 1 to Week 2 thanks to the Dragons impressive outing at CenturyLink Field.
Are you ready to Bring the Fire again this week? We need fans to bring their orange towels and get @CenturyLink_Fld rockin' Saturday.
If you need a towel, a limited quantity will be sold at the stadium.

A crowd of 20,000 decked out in orange, navy and green are expected again this week as the Dragons welcome the Dallas Renegades in Week 3.
