Apparently that multi-million dollar soccer field renovation in Capitol Hill last year has paid off for Seattle University.
Having already garnered attention as the fourth best college in the nation for soccer fans, now the young Division I institution gets the honor of hosting the 2010 Major League Soccer Cup champion Colorado Rapids for an open practice on Thursday, Mar. 10 at their newly renovated Championship Field.
From Seattle U soccer coach Brad Agoos in the Redhawks Athletics release:
Reigning MLS Cup Champion to Practice at Seattle U’s Championship Field - Seattle University Redhawks Athletics
"We are honored they chose our facility to prepare for their next game against the Vancouver Whitecaps. It’s not every day that our players and the local fans have the ability to see close-up one of the best teams in the country train. It is things like this that continue to make Seattle the best soccer community in the country," concluded Agoos.
The time has yet to be determined, but not bad for a school that hasn't yet completed its second year in Division I: a soccer facility that attracts MLS teams and a NBA arena for their basketball team! Or something like that.
