Big game. Big crowd.

Tickets sales for Sounders FC’s home game Friday against Real Salt Lake, a matchup between the two top teams in MLS, have reached 52,000, according to a team spokesman. Tickets are still available.

This is one of four games this season with CenturyLink Field at full capacity.

Here are the only MLS games for Seattle that have drawn bigger crowds (knowing, of course, Friday’s crowd will likely pass some of these):

67,385 — vs. Portland (Aug. 25, 2013), W 1-0
66,452 — vs. Portland (Oct. 7, 2012), W 3-0
64,140 — vs. San Jose (Oct. 15, 2011), W 2-1
60,908 — vs. LA Galaxy (Aug. 5, 2012), W 4-0
55,718 — vs. Vancouver (Aug. 18, 2012), W 2-0
53,679 — vs. Vancouver (June 8, 2013), W 3-2

And, of course, some stats on how the Sounders have done in front of big crowds:
