City of Renton adopts World Cup host bid resolution

It’s Resolution No. 4016, in support of the city of Seattle in its proposal to host 2018 or 2022 FIFA World Cup matches.
The resolution from the Renton City Council was adpoted two days ago, and it basically says the Virginia Mason Athletic Center would serve as a training site for one of four teams that would play in Seattle. The VMAC is the Seahawks’ facility, and is also where Sounders FC has had practices and weight training sessions.
I am having a hard time linking to the document but I did receive it.
FC Dallas has defeated the New England Revolution tonight, 1-0. That’s 13 goals in the past four games for the sizzling Burn — oh wait they aren’t the Burn anymore my bad.
So the Revs remain at 37, one behind Seattle, and now have played only one fewer game. FCD now has 33 points and is making its run.
