There’s a quiet confidence surrounding Sounders heading into offseason

He hinted a few things about the new company, mainly that they’d be an active member in the Sounders’ community efforts. So, we went ahead and plucked out a few obvious names from the hat to speculate on why they would be a good fit and why they would be a bad fit.

The USMNT is at Wembley for Wayne Rooney’s farewell match, no Sounders were called up for this pair of matches The United States men will play two matches in Europe to close out 2018. First up is England at historic Wembley Stadium for Wayne Rooney’s testimonial match with the English national team.
