A couple notes to pass along from this Thursday afternoon:
— Sounders FC announced over Twitter that more than 60,000 tickets have been sold for Saturday’s regular-season home finale at CenturyLink Field. According to the tweet, “limited tickets” are available, so if you’re thinking going, you might have to act fast. Check out the attendance numbers in this previous post for perspective.
— Fredy Montero was named U.S. Open Cup Player of the Tournament. Hard to argue with that. The star forward scored the game-winner in the last three rounds of the competition.
— Lastly, defender Jeff Parke (concussion) has not been fully cleared to play. He was off the side at the end of training and his prospects for Saturday’s game appear to be in doubt.
