Sounders-Timbers down to standing-room-only

Just arrived in Portland to find this notice:

The Portland Timbers today announced that the team will place 400 standing-room-only tickets on sale for tonight's U.S. Open Cup match against Major League Soccer's Seattle Sounders FC. The standing-room-only tickets will be available exclusively at the PGE Park box office on 18th and Morrison beginning at 5 p.m. tonight.

The standing-room-only tickets are $15. Ticket orders will be limited to four (4) per person. As of noon today, only a select few seats remained for tonight's match.

Gates open at 6 p.m. for tonight's 7 p.m. match against Seattle, and fans are encouraged to arrive early as the result of the expected sellout crowd for the third-round U.S. Open Cup match between the two Northwest rivals.

By the way, it is full-sun down here, hot and getting hotter. The temperature is suppose to peak just under 90 and should still be in the 80s for most of the game.
