More than 29,000 tickets have already been sold for next week’s U.S. Open Cup final, where Sounders FC will play for a third-straight championship against the Chicago Fire at CenturyLink Field.

Seattle drew 31,311 fans last year, which is the highest recorded attendance for an Open Cup final, which dates to 1914. Sounds like next’s week crowd will rival that.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tickets are still available through the usual outlets: SoundersFC.com, Ticketmaster and the CenturyLink Field box office.
