Seattle’s new MLS team has already sold more than 3,000 season ticket memberships.
“The phones have been ringing off the hook,” minority owner-general manager Adrian Hanauer said in a statement released by the Seahawks, who are providing operations support for the soccer team. “We are absolutely thrilled and excited with the response. There is already great response, and we have just begun.”
As for our new team’s name, though I like the snowball’s-chance-in-hell idea of the Seattle Green River Killers (pitched by a reader in this thread), my vote has to go for keeping the Seattle Sounders.
