The Seattle Sounders will go full-bowl at CenturyLink Field for four matches this season, the club announced Monday.
Fixtures against the Vancouver Whitecaps (June 29), Portland Timbers (July 21), LA Galaxy (September 1) and a Decision Day match against Minnesota United (October 6), which will mark Ozzie Alonso’s return to his former home.
“We’re excited to bring back full-bowl matches this season,” Sounders owner Adrian Hanauer said in a club statement. “Our fans are truly the most passionate and dedicated in the league, which has led to the team’s historic success when playing at home. Opening additional seating in the upper bowl adds another level of intensity at CenturyLink Field that our club has benefited from in key moments over the years. I know our guys are already looking forward to playing in front of those crowds later this year.”
The Sounders have an all-time record of 22-4-5 when CenturyLink Field’s attendance is 45,000 or more.
