On July 4, 2013, the Denver Outlaws broke the MLL attendance record for the eighth year in a row as 31,019 fans poured into Sports Authority Field at Mile High to watch the Outlaws defeat the New York Lizards, 16-7. Denver also became the first MLL team ever to start a season 10-0 with the win, and they carried this on the finish with the first perfect regular season in the thirteen years of the competition. Previously, in fact, no team had gone through an MLL regular season with only one loss, yet alone without losing. The most recent teams to lose two regular season games were the Outlaws and the Philadelphia Barrage in 2006.
