Supporters’ groups prep for World Cup draw, end-of-year parties

Various supporters’ groups in the area are preparing for upcoming events this month, so I figured I’d pass some of that information along here:

*     *     *

American Outlaws Seattle, the local chapter of U.S. men’s national team support, will be hosting a World Cup draw viewing party Friday morning at Atlantic Crossing pub (6508 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle), co-hosted by Golazo. ESPN cameras will be on hand for cut-ins during the 8:30-10:30 a.m. broadcast on ESPN2. The venue opens at 7:30 a.m. and there will be raffles, Golazo samples and other activities going on.

Emerald City Supporters, the largest supporters’ group of Sounders FC, will have its end-of-the-season party on Dec. 14 at Fred Wildlife Refuge (127 Boylston Avenue, parking and entrance on Belmont Ave.) with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. Ages 21 and up with tickets available here ($20, available until Dec. 13). There will be a review of the year by ECS leadership, an awards ceremony for the ECS Player of the Year announcement, and the unveiling of the 2014 ECS membership kit. Food, drinks and a DJ will be on hand. The Royal Femmes & Armed Service Group will be collecting Toys for Tots.

Gorilla FC will be holding an all ages end-of-the-year party and fund-raising event on Dec. 19 at the Fisher Pavilion ice skating rink at the Seattle Center (near the intersections of Thomas St. and 2nd Ave. N, between Key Arena and the Center House). There will be a special musical guest, Seattle artist Daniel G. Harmann, and an awards ceremony, along with catered food, beverages from partner breweries and wine. LEVYfilms will be there selling this year’s documentary on the Sounders: “American Football”. Tickets are $10 and be purchased here ($15 at the door), ice skates included in the price.
