The Sounders-Timbers MLS match will begin at 7:30 tonight, instead of 7 p.m. as originally scheduled. Gates open at 5:30 p.m.
The match, which will be broadcast on ESPN2, was moved back to accommodate ESPN’s World Cup coverage. Germany defeated Argentina in extra time earlier today to win the World Cup.
Tonight will be the second Sounders-Timbers match in five days, after Seattle beat Portland on Wednesday, 3-1, in extra time. That win sent Seattle to the semifinals of the U.S. Open Cup in August.
Tonight’s match, a regular-season MLS match-up at CenturyLink Field, is expected to be close to a sellout.
