Ticket sales for Nov. 2 home playoff game at 33,000

The information was first disseminated from an Arlo White tweet, but Sounders FC has since confirmed.

Ticket sales for the Nov. 2 home playoff game against Real Salt Lake have hit the 33,000 mark. Kickoff at CenturyLink Field is at 7 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on ESPN2. Some of that information is old news, but I’m trying to have all the current details in the latest posts.

In my previous post I had some capacity-related content, with comments from general manager Adrian Hanauer, so I’ll move it here.

Earlier today, I asked him if there were any plans or discussions regarding capacity for the game.

“We’ve had really cursory discussions,” Hanauer said. “We’ll see how the public on-sale goes today, but I think we lean toward wherever possible giving our season-ticket holders a reason to be season-ticket holders. I have very few doubts that demand will be greater than the current, planned capacity, and maybe that’s an OK thing.”

And what is your current, planned capacity?

“Our planned capacity is our normal configuration,” said Hanauer, referring the regular-season set up of around 36,000. “Anything beyond that will be more of a philosophical discussion about what our strategy is as far as that capacity. But again, I’m very comfortable with the idea that there’s a big benefit to being a season-ticket holder, and that is that you get into the big important games.”
