Sounders to support breast cancer awareness, host soccer equipment drive Wednesday

A couple activities will be going on at CenturyLink Field on Wednesday as the Sounders host Vancouver in a Cascadia Cup game.
First off, this is Seattle’s designated game to support breast cancer awareness. As such, there will be a lot of pink around the stadium, as seen above with goal nets, but also the match ball, corner flags, ribbon patches on jerseys, sweat bands, shoelaces, scarves, towels, pregame t-shirts, goalkeeper jerseys/gloves, and more.
Volunteers will distribute 10,000 ribbons to fans before the game and other commemorative items can be bought at the team’s pro shops (with 10 percent of the proceeds going to support families dealing with cancer). Also, the stadium lights will go pink on Wednesday and Thursdays throughout the month.
Elsewhere, the Sounders are asking for other donations in a soccer equipment drive. The team is specifically asking for jerseys, shorts, pinnies, soccer cones, shin guards, soccer shoes/cleats (youth sizes preferred). Donations should be new or “gently used,” according to a team release, and they will go to support Washington Youth Soccer’s after-school program called Soccer for Success.
