"We're excited to open season tickets sales for S2's inaugural season," said S2 General Manager Andrew Opatkiewicz. "With Starfire Stadium improvements planned for 2015 and 2016, and affordable ticket prices, we are looking forward to welcoming the Sounders community of fans and supporters, old and new. Our fans will create the atmosphere critical to developing the future stars of Sounders FC."
The club is already approaching 1,000 season tickets through the Sounders Community Trust Founders Club, where fans are able to invest a one-time payment of $250, which includes lifetime discounted season tickets for $95, as well as exclusive benefits and access to functions with the team. A limited amount of Founders Club memberships are still available for purchase.
Season Ticket Members are able to reserve specific seats for the entire season at Starfire Stadium with their ticket purchase. Seatbacks will be fastened within Starfire Stadium's Center Circle Sections of 103, 104, and 105. Starting in 2015, Founders Club and Season Ticket Members will have the opportunity to customize their seatback for a to-be-determined cost.
More than half of the priority seating sections have already been assigned to Founders Club members, and the remaining seats will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Supporters Groups will have their own designated General Admission sections.
S2 is set to compete in USL PRO, as well as domestic competitions such as the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Sounders FC is one of seven MLS clubs to field a USL PRO team in the 2015 season. The roster will consist of independent S2 signings, select First Team players looking for more match experience and promising Academy athletes.
