Another clue to a preseason friendly?

Last week, Brad Evans said in a radio interview that the Sounders will play a preseason friendly in Cancun — presumably against Atlante of the Mexican Primera Division — later this month.

This morning, Ticketmaster posted event information for a Sounders FC Community Shield match on Feb. 29 at 7 p.m. at CenturyLink Field (with new FieldTurf). No opponent was listed, but previous indications suggest it will be another Mexican team. It would also be the last warmup game before hosting Santos Laguna in a CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal.

It seems like those games are close to being finalized and I’m told we could be getting confirmation on the team’s preseason plans later today.
