Ticket sales up to 19,000 for Wednesday’s CCL game

ccl logo.jpgThe latest update from Sounders FC is that 19,000 tickets have been sold/distributed for Wednesday’s 7 p.m. game against San Francisco FC in the CONCACAF Champions League at CenturyLink Field.

Not bad at all considering that the “largest attendance for a 2010 Champions League preliminary round or group stage match was 22,513 for Sounders FC v Monterrey in Seattle,” according to the team notes.

Seattle trails 1-0 in the home-and-home, aggregate-goals series after last week’s loss in Panama. A two-goal win would advance the hosts into the CCL group stage for the second year in a row.

Wednesday’s game will be broadcast nationally on the FOX Soccer Channel, which is a premium cable channel. Tickets will be available for walk-up customers.
