A Seattle Sounders Match Day in Pictures


We attended the Seattle Sounders March 19th Home Opener against the New York Red Bull’s. It is the Seattle Sounder’sΒ first home game since they won the MLS Cup, and it was also St. Patty’s Day weekend, so we may have had a little extra fun. πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰

There is a pretty bad stigma out there about Soccer, especially Major League Soccer, being a boring sport to watch. I actually find it to be the exact opposite; the energy and fan participation at Sounder’s Games is incredible and is sure to get you pumped up and excited to watch too!

This was a pretty standard Match Day for us:

1:00pm Β Irish breakfast and beers at Fado Irish PubΒ (one of our fav places to brunch!)

3:00pm Β “March to the Match” Starting in Occidental Square, just outside Fuel

4:00pm Kickoff!

A fun brunch item (my favorite) … “Irish Quesadillas” made with boxty instead of a tortillia, and a side of puddings

Obligatory bathroom snapchat selfie. We were wearing ridiculous St. Patty’s Day leggings.

It was our anniversary, so we treated ourselves to special seats in the “Delta Sky Club”. Club level seats are the best!

Yum! Beardslee Public House has some grub available in the Club Level.

My hubby was feeling pretty good. He made a lot of friends with random strangers and didn’t spend much time watching, haha!
