The Scouting Report
With the 2014 season just getting underway, the Seattle Sounders are headed down a familiar path—one that leads to the playoffs. Since joining the MLS in 2009, the Sounders have yet to miss a postseason; with a 3–2–1 record, they are securely in the playoff picture, tied for second place in the league. Their status as a perennial contender may stem from the top of the organization, as decorated head coach Sigi Schmidt continues to ply his craft on the sideline, where he has won nine major titles and two MLS Cups since 1999. This season, Sigi helms a squad of title contenders led by top scorer and U.S. National Team captain Clint Dempsey, who has already poured in six goals and cemented his status in the media as an MVP candidate without having to plant a story under the pseudonym "Blob Clostas."
Seattle Sounders FC
Expansion teams often experience growing pains, spinning their wheels before building the talent and fan support needed to claw their way out of their league’s basement. Apparently, no one shared this narrative with the Seattle Sounders. Upon entering the MLS in 2009, the Sounders wasted no time establishing themselves as one of the League’s most dominant programs, reaching the playoffs four years in a row and seizing three straight U.S. Open Cups, all without hiring aliens to steal Pele’s life force. The Sounders have also accomplished the impressive feat of selling out every single home game at CenturyLink Field since the team’s inception.
Consistently breaking records for soccer attendance, CenturyLink Field boasts one of the nation's premier pitches. Originally designed to hold intimate soccer crowds capped at around 30,000 seats, the club has answered the demand of the city's ravening fans by opening more and more of the stadium. Most recently the field hosted a record-breaking 67,385 attendees at a game against Portland. Art installations decorating the stadium range from 24-foot steel discs rising up the North Tower to the primordial landscapes of James Lavadour's Standing Among Ghosts, which takes its name from a speech by Chief Seattle about how incredibly haunted the city is.
