Perhaps you saw Arlo White‘s tweet a few minutes ago. If not, I’ve posted it above.
Indeed, more than 55,000 tickets have been sold for Sounders FC’s regular season home finale on Oct. 15 against the San Jose Earthquakes. Aside from the playoffs, it will be Kasey Keller‘s last game in front of his hometown crowd. It could also be an important one in the Supporters’ Shield race if Seattle wins this weekend against Philadelphia.
The number is amazing and just another example of the unparalleled support in this community.
It must be said, however, that the Oct. 15 match was a part of the three-game ticket packages earlier in the year that included the big friendly against Manchester United. A June 23 home game against New York was the other game and 46,065 showed up for that one.
Regardless, it should be another exciting one at CenturyLink Field. Tickets are available through the usual outlets, including SoundersFC.com and Ticketmaster.
