Cascadia lottery (Wednesday links)

The Sounders are taking the day off from training, so there isn’t expected to be a lot of news today.

If interested, you should definitely take time to participate in the lottery for Cascadia away tickets for games in Vancouver (May 19, $30/each) and Portland (June 24, $42/each). A separate lottery for the other away games will be handled at a later date. You can make your submission on SoundersFC.com and here are some guidelines.

— You have to be a season-ticket holder.

— You can’t be a paid member of a supporters group.

— Tickets are non-transferable and must be purchased in a pair.

— You can only win once out of Seattle’s four Cascadia road game this season.

— Complete rules here.

The lottery closes on April 30. The draw will be held May 2 and winners will be notified around May 4. There will be 37 winners (resulting in 74 tickets). The ret of the away-fan allocation will go to fans in supporters groups.

— Looks like Chelsea will indeed be the MLS All-Star Game opponent this year. FOX Sports is the latest to report as much.

— In an interesting move, the Galaxy traded midfielder Paolo Cardozo for Chivas USA defender David Junior Lopes. The Red Bulls are shopping for a forward.

— New England star Shalrie Joseph was the latest to receive retroactive punishment from the MLS Disciplinary Committee. He will be fined and suspended for this tackle in a game against FC Dallas.

— In some injury news around the league, Chicago’s Cory Gibbs underwent surgery to repair his right meniscus, FC Dallas’ Andrew Wiedeman will be out a while after a sports hernia surgery and Philly’s Roger Torres suffered an MCL sprain.

Oops.
