Sounders FC v. Chivas de Guadalajara, pregame notes

mariachi.jpgYes, that’s a Mariachi band playing in the concourse. Looking at the fans trickle in, this might be as close to an away game as the Sounders see here at Qwest Field. The south end is unusually empty and rumor is a group of those fans gave their tickets away.

This is the final of three friendlies on the schedule this season, a number that will surely go down in 2011. We might see an attendance record for the year broken tonight as the season-high was 45,631 at the Celtic friendly on July 18.

I expect to see a bunch of Seattle reserves in this one and probably in Electricity yellow. I’m not sure how much of the Chivas stars we’ll see either, since they’re into their league season as well.
