“We are very excited to be bringing this event to the greater Tacoma area,” said Tide owner Mike Jennings of the Sunday spectacular. “First fans will get to see the highest level of women's soccer in the Northwest, and then they will see what we believe is a first for our community...an international friendly with a historic English club taking on our hometown side.”
The Seattle Sounders Women are preparing to host the W-League Championships at the end of July at Starfire Sports Stadium in Tukwila, WA. The match against Colorado will be an important stepping stone towards playoff form.

Head coach Micky Adams has recently brought in a slew of new talent that he undoubtedly will want to see on display during the Valiants' tour.
“This is an important day for soccer in South Sound, and for the Tide,” concluded Jennings. “We are reaching out with this great event to see how much support we can achieve.”
