Sounders announce changes to season-ticket package

Sounders FC has announced changes to its season-ticket plan for the 2015 season, the most significant being the addition of a 19th match and a price hike.

The package will include the regular season home matches, a friendly and a “19th game” — either a two-for-one for the CONCACAF Champions League group stage matches, the first MLS Playoff match should the Sounders fail to qualify for the continental competition or a rebate for the 2016 season should Seattle fail to qualify for either.

“Champions League is something that is really important to our club,” Sounders owner and general manager Adrian Hanauer said Monday. “We’ve talked about wanting to be a global brand. In order to be a global brand we have to win our region.”

The price increase is between $1 and $4 per game, depending on the area of the stadium — “it’s like a 9 percent total increase” due to the higher cost and additional match, Hanauer said.

“We want to keep ticket pricing as low as possible while also giving our club the chance to win as many tickets as possible,” Hanauer said.

Got all that? Feel free to throw any questions you have down in the comments and I’ll answer them as best I can.
