Seattle Sounders Plan Halloween-Themed Playoff Game

With the first leg of the Sounders 2010 MLS playoff campaign beginning on Halloween, the Seattle Sounders are planning plenty of activities for fans both young and old. Costume contests, giveaways, trick or treating and even a haunted house are all in the cards Sunday at Qwest Field.

Fans are invited to dress up and participate in a costume contest prior to the “March to the Match”. Judging for the costume contest will begin at 2:45 p.m. at Occidental Park. Fans will vote for their favorite costume with the top award winner receiving a trip for two people to the second leg of the series on November 7 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The prize includes air, ground transportation, hotel and tickets to the match.

But that’s not all. A soccer-themed haunted house will be constructed in the North Lot at Qwest Field. Fans will a ticket to the game will be granted free entry into the structure filled with ghost and goblins.

For the kids, who may be missing out on some valuable trick or treat time during the game, Samsung mobile will be passing out trick or treat bags. At 4:30 p.m., a 500 participation performance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” will take place in the North Plaza. Fans are invited to join in on the dance.

All of the Halloween activities are appetizers to the main course, the Sounders playoff game against the Los Angeles Galaxy, on Sunday night. The Sounders and Galaxy kick it off on Halloween night at 5 p.m.


Seattle Sounders Playoff Ticket Update: 34,000 Sold

Qwest Field will be packed and rocking on Halloween night when the Los Angeles Galaxy come to town for the first leg of the first round matchup against the Seattle Sounders. The Sounders, who broke their own attendance record this year, will again pack Qwest to create a raucous environment for yet another big game in the Sounders short MLS history. As of today, 34,000 tickets have been sold to the game, with three days left to top that number.

The Seattle Times' Joshua Mayers posted the update on Twitter with details on ordering tickets.

Get 'em while they're hot! More than 34,000 tickets sold for Sunday's playoff game between Seattle and L.A. at Qwest Field. 877-MLS-GOALless than a minute ago via web

A nice home field advantage can't hurt against the top-seeded team in the West. The Sounders need to pull out a win before heading to LA to finish off the two leg, aggregate goal matchup. Taking a goal, or more, in the first leg is always pivotal in a series like this.

The Sounders take on the Galaxy this Sunday at 5 p.m.


SBN Seattle Commentary: Sounders Drop The Ball With Season Ticket Renewals


Ahead of this weekend's playoff opener, the Seattle Sounders caused an uproar when season ticket renewal notices were sent out on Monday. Season ticket holders experienced sticker shock at the sight of increased prices after being promised no more than a 3 percent hike.

As a season ticket holder myself, I was not given the renewal price because I've only held tickets for a year and a half. After supporting the Sounders and being loyal to the team, I felt betrayed by both the price increase and the lack of a renewal discount.

I'll still renew my tickets, largely because I love the team and environment surrounding games, but I now harbor resentment towards the front office for their actions this week. As someone who has been loyal to the team from the beginning -- buying tickets as soon as I moved back to Seattle -- I should be treated just as any other season ticket holder that renews their tickets for the 2011 season.
