This statement from Keith Hodo, co-president of the Emerald City Supporters:

“It’s a good start but shouldn’t be the end goal. Eventually we should honor the FIFA guidelines of 5% of tickets being allocated to away support. This is going to be the premier rivalries in MLS and in order to grow the sport in America we need more away supporters at all games.

We’re committed to working with the front offices of the clubs to ensure that we support and foster this rivalry in the right way. Eventually these derbies will be the ones that American supporters circle on their calendar. We want to get to the point where supporters from across the nation and the globe will be able to descend on Seattle, Vancouver or Portland and see a truly world class football atmosphere.”
