Seattle’s path to yet another cup – the Cascadia Cup – also will become clear Saturday when the Vancouver Whitecaps visit the Portland Timbers.
The Sounders already know that they will determine their own Cascadia Cup destiny Oct. 10 when the Whitecaps visit CenturyLink Field. However, the Sounders will have to win that game if the Whitecaps win or draw at Providence Park this weekend. Seattle would need only a draw if the Whitecaps lose in Portland.
The Timbers-Whitecaps match will be shown on NBCSN at 2 p.m. PT Saturday (just ahead of the Sounders match at New York). Here's a preview from the league.
