Sounders management has done a lot of things right this season. And it seems their doing so again Saturday with a couple of events to honor their first-year fans.
Here's a release from the club:
Sounders FC fans are encouraged to arrive early for Saturday’s match vs. FC Dallas to participate in fan appreciation activities. The Qwest Field gates open at 6:00 p.m. and first kick is at 7:30 p.m.
The activities begin at the “March to the Match” in Occidental Park. Sounders FC staff will be distributing “I gave my full 90” t-shirts, while supplies last. The March will depart Occidental Park located in the heart of Pioneer Square at the intersection of Main Street and Occidental Avenue South.
The “March to the Match” will depart the park at 6:00 p.m. and finish just outside the Northwest Gate, where fans can enter the stadium.
At 6:30 p.m., the Sounders FC ownership group will reveal and dedicate a permanent installation to recognize original season ticket holders on the northwest wall of Qwest Field, adjacent to the NW ticket windows.
