Sounders FC released more information on its Western Conference semifinal matchup with Real Salt Lake this evening. Seattle’s road game will be at 7 p.m. Saturday at Rio Tinto Stadium and televised on FOX Soccer.

The return leg at CenturyLink Field will be Nov. 2. A time and broadcast information hasn’t been announced, though one reporter says kickoff will be 8 p.m. — that’s unconfirmed. (UPDATE 2:30 p.m. — The game will be at 7 p.m.)

Tickets for the home game go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday.

Here are some good reminders from the news release:

Conference semifinal series are conducted in a home-and-home, aggregate-goal format. The team that scores the most goals in the series advances to the single elimination Western Conference Championship. If the teams are tied after 180 minutes in the series, a 30-minute extra time period (divided into two 15-minute periods) will be played followed by kicks from the penalty spot, if necessary

The team with the higher seed between the two Conference finalists will host the Conference Championship game on November 5 or 6.
