Mention the city of Seattle and it’s likely that a beautiful destination in the Pacific Northwest comes immediately to mind. For those that love the great outdoors, Seattle promises mountain peaks, gentle waters, and lush forests. For those that are inspired by urban energy, Seattle brings music, restaurants, museums and creative inspiration in thrilling waves. Still, for those with a passion for athletics, Seattle is packed with teams that have taken a firm place in the hearts of fans. Among them, the Seattle Sounders hold fast to their well-earned reputation as the city’s premier soccer team with good reason.
Finding Fame in Seattle
Founded as an American professional soccer club in 2007, the Seattle Sounders call CenturyLink Field their home turf and are led by head coach Brian Schmetzer. This diverse team of professionals hailing from across the U.S. and globe makes up one of Seattle’s pride and joy groups that goes head to head with some of the most prestigious teams on the professional roster. The Seattle Sounders are part of the Western Conference of Major League Soccer and since 2009 have steadily grown city-wide interest in the sport of soccer as they have gone on to participate in high-profile games, conferences, and titles. 2019 will mark the team’s 10th year in the MLS and season tickets are available for fans online.
Beyond their packed game lineup, the Seattle Sounders sponsors year-round youth enrichment camps that range from beginner programs up to advanced level players. These camps are meant to integrate the love of the sport into a year-round approach to learning. Spring break camps, development camps, and special clinics have become popular with Seattle-based youth looking for a way to improve the skills they have and become more closely linked with the Seattle soccer community. The Seattle Sounders players are often seen out and about in Seattle at a variety of charity events and the team is linked to Seattle-based organizations including Strong Against Cancer, Wins for Cures and Washington Federal Saves for Youth.
