About Seattle Sounders FC
The Sounders Football Club is Seattle's beloved professional soccer club and one of the newest clubs in Major League Soccer. The squad was founded seven years ago in 2007, but didn't compete in its first match until 2009, in which the team won against the New York Red Bulls. Though they're still fairly new to Major League Soccer, the Sounders have already made a distinct impression on the sport, having won two consecutive US Open Cup championships and becoming the first team ever to do so. They've now won a total of four US Open Cup championships in only seven years.
Seattle Sounders FC History
The Seattle Sounders FC were added to the MLS as part of an expansion spearheaded by owner Joe Roth for $30 million. They settled on the 67,000 capacity CenturyLink Field which also houses the Seattle Seahawks. Its a raucous, rowdy stadium where fans cheer on their squad with all the intensity of the most obsessed European fans. In the Sounders' inaugural season, they became the second MLS team to ever win the U.S. Open Cup in their first year of play. Their first season sold out every regular season home match, the home playoff match, and its four U.S. Open Cup matches.
In 2018, the Sounders broke the MLS record for the most consecutive wins in the post-shootout era before losing to the Philadelphia Union in September. They faced the Portland Timbers in the Conference Semifinals. Though the Sounders were bested by the Timbers during penalty shootout, the game is considered to be one of the best playoff matches in MLS history.
