Just saw the last installment of the open tryouts. This one was in Yakima, where four players were picked to round out the group of 10. You can vote now for your favorite and see video profiles of the finalists at the NWCN Web site. Nice work by the network.
The final tryout to pick the one winner of a spot on the roster will air Feb. 1 on KING-TV. Here’s more info from Sounders FC’s Web site:
“Beginning on January 23, fans can visit www.king5.com to view videos, bios and comments from evaluators for all 10 finalists. Fans may vote for their favorite player from January 26-30. The finalist with the most fan votes will be guaranteed a spot in the final four.
The final tryout show will be broadcast live on Sunday, February 1, 2009, following Super Bowl XLIII on KING 5 (approximately 8:30 p.m.). The winner will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges and awarded a spot on the 2009 Sounders FC roster.”
