With the announcement yesterday that Portland will host the 2014 MLS All-Star game, we asked general manager Adrian Hanauer today if the Sounders are uninterested in bringing the game to Seattle.
"I wouldn’t say that we’re not interested in it: We haven’t made it a priority," he said. "We’ve prioritized things differently. We were able to host the MLS Cup back when it was neutral in 2009. So as stadiums get built and teams vow for, now really only the All-Star game, I’m not sure how high we are on the totem poll. But I think at some point in the future it’s something we’d like to have in Seattle."
