Kickoff in the second leg of the Western Conference finals is 6 p.m. at CenturyLink Field.

Tickets are still available on the team website and other outlets. Sections have been opened in the stadium’s upper deck, as you can see in the screen grab of a Ticketmaster graphic above.

As has been mentioned before, 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 2011, 35,521 in 2010, and 35,807 in 2009.

It also will be the highest attended MLS playoff game that wasn’t a final and could make a run at the top five overall. Here’s that list, courtesy of the Sounders:
