Sounders to play at Real Salt Lake on Saturday, Oct. 29

Real Salt Lake Logo.jpgReal Salt Lake will be hosting Sounders FC in the first leg of the Western Conference semifinals on Oct. 29, the team confirmed on its Twitter account Saturday night. A kickoff time hasn’t been determined, but the team is looking at possibly 7:30 p.m. (apparently RSL has never hosted a game on Sunday).

Confirmation of dates, times and broadcast information should be available soon.

Playing on Saturday would seem to indicate that the return leg in Seattle will be Wednesday, Nov. 2 at CenturyLink Field. I haven’t been able to confirm that yet, but here’s a report on Philly.com saying the game will indeed be on Nov. 2 and televised on ESPN2.

Sounders’ playoff tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday.

Again, expect all the details to come in an announcement Sunday (maybe Monday at the latest), but I wanted to pass along whatever information was available if you wanted to make some preliminary plans.
