Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The 2014–15 season was the last for the Islanders at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale. The team moved to Brooklyn starting with the 2015–16 season, while retaining its name.
  2. ^ D.C. United did not have the actual lowest attendance in the most recently completed 2014 MLS season. That distinction belongs to Chivas USA (average 13,056), which folded after the 2014 season.
