Sounders 2 to open against defending USL-Pro champion Sacramento

Fans who have already thrown down for season tickets for the inaugural season of Sounders 2 at Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila won’t have to wait very long to get their money’s worth.

Not only does S2 open with defending USL-Pro champion Sacramento on March 21, it follows with matches against their Cascadian rivals Vancouver (March 29) and Portland (April 11) — and all of them are home at Starfire.

Sacramento finished last season in second place before topping the Harrisburg City Islanders in the USL-Pro final.

“No matter who we play, I know the place will be packed because we just have that good of fans,” said S2 coach Ezra Hendrickson said in the team release. “I know (Sacramento coach) Preki, and have played on teams for and against him. That itself is going to be a good rivalry.

“We are both going to want to defeat each other and it is going to test us right off the bat.”

S2 was originally slated to open against Timbers 2, but that match has been pushed backward due to a scheduling conflicted.

Below is S2’s inaugural season schedule in full:
