Over 5,000 tickets sold for Wednesday’s match v. Colorado

For an organization perhaps best known for unmatched attendance, Sounders FC’s ticket sales of just 5,000 for its Community Shield match against Colorado on Wednesday has to be disappointing.

The early response I’ve been getting is that some fans are waiting until game day to buy tickets to avoid Ticketmaster charges, particularly since there’s no threat of a sellout. Due to the recent history with the service, it’s understandable.

Also, an early kickoff + midweek + preseason doesn’t exactly equal a hot ticket. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t be surprised to eventually see around 10,000 in the crowd.

Here some details if you’re interested in attending:

* Kickoff at Qwest Field is scheduled for 7 p.m. (Corrected Saturday 5:04 p.m.)

* Tickets are still available ($10 for adults, $5 for ages 6-17, free for children under 6). Visit www.soundersfc.com for details.

* Fans can also purchase tickets on Wednesday at the Qwest Field Box Office located at the NW corner of Qwest Field
