Sounders expect more than 50,000

(Seattle, WA)  —  The Sounders will play before a crowd in excess of 50-thousand when they host the Vancouver Whitecaps in an MLS Cascadia Cup rivalry match on Saturday at CenturyLink Field.  The match has been moved to a night-time start and temporary grass will be installed in advance of the U.S. national team’s World Cup qualifying match against Panama next week.  Ticket sales have surpassed 50-thousand for the Sounders match and Seattle is 4-and-0 when playing in front of crowds of that size or larger.
