Seattle Sounders FC, a gem of the Pacific Northwest, was established in 2007 and has since been a powerhouse in Major League Soccer (MLS).

Since their inaugural season in 2009, the Seattle Sounders FC has captured the hearts of soccer enthusiasts not only in the Pacific Northwest but also across the nation. Their journey, from their formation to their successes on the pitch, has been a compelling narrative in Major League Soccer (MLS) history.

Origins and Ownership: Seattle Sounders FC was established in 2007 as an MLS expansion team. The club’s majority owners include Hollywood producer Joe Roth and businessman Adrian Hanauer, with comedian Drew Carey holding a minority stake. In 2015, Hanauer took over as majority owner from Roth. Over the years, the ownership group expanded to include a few former Microsoft executives and celebrities like Russell Wilson, the quarterback for the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, and his wife, the singer Ciara.

Home Ground – Lumen Field: Situated in the heart of Seattle, Lumen Field (formerly known as CenturyLink Field) has been the home of the Sounders since their MLS inception. Shared with the Seattle Seahawks, this modern stadium boasts a seating capacity of approximately 68,740, which can be adjusted for soccer matches. The roaring Sounders fans, especially the Emerald City Supporters group, make the stadium one of the most intimidating venues for visiting teams.

The area around Lumen Field is a bustling urban space. Located in the SoDo neighborhood, it’s a stone’s throw away from Pioneer Square, a historic neighborhood filled with art galleries, restaurants, and nightlife. The proximity to downtown Seattle means that on match days, fans can enjoy the numerous bars and eateries before and after the game. The iconic Seattle waterfront and Pike Place Market are also within walking distance, providing fans and visitors ample opportunities to explore the city’s attractions.
