Sounders FC

Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

November 13, 2012 at 2:48 PM

More than 40,000 tickets sold for Sunday’s playoff game, sections opened in upper deck

centurylink playoffs la.jpgAccording to a Sounders FC team spokesman, ticket sales have exceeded 40,000 for Sunday’s playoff game against the Los Angeles Galaxy. The second leg of the Western Conference finals kicks off at 6 p.m. at CenturyLink Field.

Sections in the upper deck have been opened to satisfy demand (as seen in the screen grab on Ticketmaster.com). The club has always adjusted capacity based on sales and very rarely turned people away in these sorts of instances.

Sunday’s attendance will set a franchise record for a home playoff game. The Sounders drew 34,941 in the conference semifinals this year, 36,021 in the same round last postseason, 35,521 in 2010, and back in Year 1 it was 35,807.

It also will be the highest attended MLS playoff game that wasn’t a final. Here’s that list, courtesy of the Sounders:
