Here’s a screen grab of Ticketmaster’s interactive seat map for tonight’s U.S. Open Cup final at CenturyLink Field, where Sounders FC and the Chicago Fire kick off at 7 p.m.
The dark blue sections indicate that tickets are available in the upper deck.
This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Sounders FC opened up the Hawk’s Nest not long ago to satisfy demand and a crowd of around 35,000 is expected. General manager Adrian Hanauer said no one will be turned away, so sections will continue to open up as needed.
