Thumbs up Sounders FC Sells Out Home Opener; Expanded to 32,400

RENTON, Wash. – Single game tickets for the Seattle Sounders FC inaugural home opener on March 19 sold out this morning. Sounders FC will kick off the 2009 Major League Soccer season at Qwest Field versus the New York Red Bulls with more fans than originally planned.

Due to the anticipation and tremendous enthusiasm from soccer fans, the seating configuration for the March 19 home opener has been expanded to 32,400. Sounders FC will also cap season tickets at 22,000. The team recently surpassed 20,000 season tickets, the largest season ticket base in Major League Soccer.

“When we started this process 15 months ago, our goal was to successfully bring the world’s game to the people of Seattle,” said Sounders FC Owner Joe Roth. “Because of this region’s passion and the overwhelming support for the Sounders FC, we wanted even more fans to experience our historic opening match in March.”

The seating configuration for regular season matches will be increased to 27,700 seats, making it one of the larger venues in Major League Soccer.

“This community once again showed why Seattle has the best fans in the country,” said Vulcan Sports and Entertainment CEO Tod Leiweke. “The demand for tickets has exceeded our expectations, and the seating expansion to 27,700 will allow more fans to join us without jeopardizing the intimacy of the stadium.”

Season tickets will be capped to accommodate group, partial season and single game ticket sales. Season tickets consist of 18 home matches, including the March 19 home opener and July 18 match versus English Premier League power, Chelsea FC.

Single game tickets for all other home matches are available at www.SoundersFC.com or by calling 877-MLS-GOAL.

Individual game ticket prices per match are $20, $25, $30, $39 and $45. Ticket prices in Club Wells Fargo are $49 and $85 per match.

The Sounders FC also offers seven-game partial season ticket packages. There are two packages to choose from starting at $126 per pack.

Great for the team, great for the MLS, great for the economy.

Since I don't have a favourite MLS team I'll be supporting the Sounders this year.

I'm just about the same. The closest MLS club to follow are in Texas which I refuse to support anything from there. I'm definitely surprised by the organized preparedness and professionalism of this club, from ownership to coaching staff right down to the supporter groups. I can only hope that either or both Portland and Vancouver succeed in their bids to move up to MLS as that would help push the Cascadia rivalry to the limelight.
