Sounders FC announced Tuesday that more than 30,000 tickets have been sold for Tuesday’s 7 p.m. game against the Chicago Fire. The team will open up seats in the “Hawks Nest” at the north end of CenturyLink Field to satisfy demand.

That section has never been open for a non-friendly and can be purchased for $17 at SoundersFC.com.

Seattle drew 31,311 fans last year, which is the highest recorded attendance for an Open Cup final, which dates to 1914.
