Sounders again advise planning, early arrival

Here's a reminder from the club:

Sounders FC encourages fans attending Saturday's match to plan ahead and arrive well in advance of kickoff to avoid possible traffic delays and congestion due to the annual St. Patrick's Day celebrations and weekend lane and ramp closures. Sounders FC hosts Toronto FC on the Xbox Pitch at CenturyLink Field on Saturday, March 15. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. PT and gates open at 12 p.m. Kickoff was originally scheduled for 7 p.m.

March to the Match activities begin at 12 p.m. at Occidental Park in Pioneer Square. Sound Wave will perform and players from the Sounders 2007 USL championship team will be recognized.

There are plenty of transportation options for fans to access CenturyLink Field. Visit the team's transportation guide at

Fans are invited to participate in all Soccer Celebration activities located outside the northwest gate, within the North Plaza and continue throughout the CenturyLink Field Plaza. Activities include inflatable games, face painting, hair painting, music and more. Soccer Celebration activities conclude at kickoff.

Each winner will receive complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages during the match, and a Sounders FC jersey. Man of the Match booths are located near sections 106, 121 and 139.
