COMING OF AGE
While it’s true that many things grow
better with age, the ongoing question is
when do objects reach maturity?
When do people reach their prime?
When should a business become profitable? How long must a venture be pursued before reaching for the prize?
For the family – the players, staff and
fans – of Sounders FC, there’s every indication that they are entering prime time.
Three years into their journey, they are
arriving way ahead of schedule on all
fronts.
Most businesses forge a five-year plan
to reach profitability. Seattle fans have
filled the stands since Day One, with 50
consecutive sellouts while expanding
capacity. Initially a shock color, Rave
Green is ubiquitous, a staple of the Puget
Sounder’s wardrobe.
In most American sports, pro teams
take an average of six seasons before
reaching the playoffs. Sounders FC have
qualified for the MLS playoffs each of the
first three years and lifted the Lamar Hunt
U.S. Open Cup three times—a feat managed only three other times in the tournament’s 99-year history.
In league play, they have averaged
more points per game with each successive season. On the international stage,
Seattle is also pressing forward. They are
the first MLS club to qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League in each of
their first three campaigns. Better still,
Sounders FC are improving in that competition, advancing to the group stage in
2010-11 and to the knockout rounds in
2011-12.
Such success is typically reserved for
the most entrenched clubs. The soccer
world is dominated by teams born in the
19th Century.

RAUS, THE SPORTING
– BR IAN ST
are a hundred years old at a minimum,”
says Sounders FC general manager
Adrian Hanauer. “Ours is 15 years old.
We’re still trying to figure things out and
learning who we are.”
Yet it was determined well before the
2009 inaugural match that Sounders FC
would not be taking baby steps.
“We set high standards, high goals,
and went out and did everything we
needed so we wouldn’t live like an expansion team for the first 3-4 years,” says
Hanauer.
“Like the fans, I have to remind myself
that this club is still so young,”
admits coach Sigi Schmid.
“The expectations were so
high from the very beginning
that our infancy was shortlived. We really viewed ourselves as an established club
early on. We grew up fast and
matured very early as a club.”
Much of that maturation
process was realized in 2011.
Nothing came easily. In fact, it
seemed as though Seattle
was subjected to enough
obstacles to torpedo not one,
but two seasons.
It began just hours before
the first match, with striker
Blaise Nkufo parting ways
with the club. Top scorer
Fredy Montero sustained a
fractured wrist. Sounders FC
failed to win in any of the first
four matches. It got worse.
A brutal tackle broke the leg of
star winger Steve Zakuani and O’Brian
White, Nkufo’s heir apparent up top, was
lost to blood clots in his leg. After 11 outings Seattle stood fifth in its division and
had just three wins.
A lesser side might have succumbed.
Instead, at that juncture, Sounders FC
began forging a collective frame of mind
to fight on, no matter what the circumstances. They were resolute. They would
find a way to win.
Seattle broke down the walls of Real
Salt Lake’s home fortress, ending a MLSrecord 29-match home unbeaten streak.
Playing down a man at Toronto, they won
on Montero’s last-minute free kick. The
wins began multiplying, the points piling
up over 11 straight league and cup games
without a defeat.
Hanauer credits technical director
Chris Henderson, Schmid and the entire
coaching staff for building a roster capable of withstanding injuries and fostering
a mindset where players could focus on
the objective at hand rather than the
adversity surrounding them.
“Definitely we added a lot of maturity
last year because of the various difficulties that we had to handle,” says Schmid.
“The team maintained their belief in themselves. We never lost faith in each other.
“When games weren’t going our way,
we stayed focused,” he adds. “We had
comeback wins. It might take until the
final minute but we would find the right
button to be successful in each game.”
Further proof of Seattle’s arrival came
during August: Seven wins and a draw in
eight starts. An extra-time victory in the
Champions League. A stoppage-time
rally at Kansas City. Playing without several regulars at Monterrey, yet becoming
only the second MLS team to prevail on
Mexican soil.
Sounders FC was winning every
which way possible.
By early October, another Open Cup
had been captured and the Rave Green
were fast closing in the Supporters’ Shield
race. If not for a knee injury to talismanic
midfielder Mauro Rosales, they might
have made a deeper run toward MLS
Cup. If there’s an upside to a first-round
exit, it’s the resulting eagerness to begin
again.
Approaching 2012, Sounders FC are a
force to be feared. They possess three
undeniable attributes of a budding champion: abundant talent, a positive belief
system and a gnawing hunger for greater
success.
“Our goal is to win as many games as
we can and win the MLS Cup,” Schmid
says. “There are 19 teams in the league
and 18 teams will finish disappointed. We
want to be the team that’s happy, and we
want to do it sooner than later.”
The bond between Sounders FC players and their fans only grows stronger.
The stadium was full and the spirit evident well before the first kick. From there
the relationship has become symbiotic.
Wins and trophies beget bigger
crowds, tremendous tifos and a passion
never before seen from supporters on this
continent. When their ranks swelled to
more than 64,000 for retiring captain
Kasey Keller’s final home match, the
world took notice.
Schmid said he and the team
have come to expect such displays, yet
they will never take it for granted.
“We know they’re going to be there for
us every game,” he says, “and they know
we will fight the battle. The team and the
fans are trying to meet each other’s
expectations at every match. From that
standpoint I’m amazed every time I step
on the field.”
Hanauer repeatedly finds the stadium
atmosphere astounding. “I’m continually
blown away and proud of the history that’s
being made in soccer in this country.”
Keller knows the community’s connection to soccer and the Sounders name

AFTER ATTENDING SO
began long ago, when he was just a boy
on an Olympia farm. The history of the
NASL and USL teams and the many people behind the scenes who have helped
kick-start this phenomenon.
“I'm humbled not just for what the club
has done for me and given me the opportunity to come home and finish my career
is something that is just so incredibly special,” Keller says. “You can ask my friends
who were able to fly out, guys who've
played around the world and they just
can't believe it. They just are so proud of
what's going on here in Seattle and I'm
just proud to be a small piece of it.”
For certain, what’s happening in
Seattle is special. The world’s game has
returned and been embraced with eyes
and arms wide open. The club, spurred by
such support and guided masterfully by
its leaders, has become a source of pride
both to the local community and the
American soccer community at large.
Given the gains of the first three years,
the trajectory for what comes next points
to the sky as the limit.
“We’ve learned a lot of lessons,” says
Hanauer. “We have a good and deep
team, a good and deep staff of coaches
and support personnel. We have put ourselves in a position to be one of the best
teams in MLS and we’re confident in our
ability to win. So I have a large degree of
hope and confidence that we will be highly successful.”

Since 2001, Hanauer has
been associated with the highest level of soccer played in
Seattle. He first joined the ownership group of the Sounders
franchise in the United Soccer
Leagues First Division, and
later became majority shareholder and general manager. In
2002, during his first season in
that role, he was rewarded with
Seattle going 23-4-1—the second-best record in league history. From 2004 to 2007, the
Sounders played in the USL-1
championship game three
times, winning twice (2005,
2007) and also taking the

PAUL G. ALLEN
OWNER
OWNERSHIP
16
Paul G. Allen helped bring major league soccer
to the Northwest when his Vulcan Sports and
Entertainment joined the ownership group behind
the Sounders FC. The announcement in 2007 was
the result of years of work and enthusiasm on behalf
of soccer fans.
Allen had visions of world-class soccer in his
hometown soon after purchasing the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League. Allen bought
the club to save pro football in Seattle after the former owners threatened to move the team to southern California. On June 17, 1997, the voters of
Washington state approved “Referendum 48” to
authorize a public/private partnership to construct a
stadium, exhibition center, and parking facilities.
One of the keys to the success of the vote was
statewide support from the soccer community and
its hope to one day see professional soccer, played
at the highest level, return to the Northwest.
Growing up in the Seattle, Allen’s passion for
sports began when he attended University of
Washington football games with his father; he later
became a basketball fan watching the Seattle
Supersonics win the 1979 NBA Championship.
Allen bought the Seahawks in 1996 after community leaders asked him to save the team from
being moved to Los Angeles.
“From the beginning of this process, my goals
have been to work with the community to create a
lasting asset for our future; and to ensure the longterm success of the Seahawks,” said Allen at the
time of purchasing the franchise. He also wanted to
“create a world-class facility for the state of
Washington.”
That became a reality in 2002 with the opening
of the Seahawks Stadium and Exhibition Center,
renamed CenturyLink Field and CenturyLink Field
Event Center in 2011. An open-air facility which many
critics argue is the best venue in the National
Football League, CenturyLink Field is home to over
165 events annually ranging from soccer, to
Supercross, concerts, graduation ceremonies, and
trade shows.
“It exceeds the vision we had originally,” Allen
said shortly after the opening of the stadium. “We
had a bunch of goals about trying to create a really
intimate stadium that would be great for the fans, to
have elegant architecture, and I think we’ve ended
up with a fantastic facility.”
Allen is one of the nation’s best-known and generous philanthropists. He co-founded Microsoft with
Bill Gates in 1976 and continues to be an innovator
in the world of business and technology. He is
founder and chairman of Vulcan Inc., which oversees his philanthropy and business interests. He is
also the owner of the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers.
Allen has been named one of the top philanthropists in America – with lifetime giving approaching
$1.5 billion – and is committed to leaving a majority
of his estate to support communities throughout the
Northwest and internationally. Allen gives back to
the community through The Paul G. Allen Family
Foundation, which strengthens communities and
supports vulnerable populations in the areas of arts
and culture, human services, opportunities for
youth, and scientific advancement. He also gives
directly, including $256 million in 2010 to Washington
State University’s School for Global Animal Health.
In 2003 he pledged $100 million to create the
Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle. The nonprofit Allen Institute is dedicated to accelerating
understanding of the human brain in health and disease. It pursues innovative and unprecedented
large-scale initiatives that result in public resources,
knowledge and tools intended to fuel discovery
throughout the broader scientific community. In 2006
the Allen Institute completed its inaugural Allen Brain
Atlas project, a Web-based, three-dimensional map
of gene expression in the mouse brain, which is
openly accessible online and has become a staple
resource for brain researchers worldwide. The
Institute has since expanded on that project and
generated an extensive suite of online public
resources that now also include groundbreaking
atlases of the spinal cord and the human brain.
These resources receive approximately 45,000 visits each month from scientists worldwide, helping to
lead them to new insights about neurological function and brain-related diseases and disorders.
Inspired by growing up in the era of the “space
race,” with its Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions,
Allen underscored his passion for rocketry by sponsoring the development of SpaceShipOne, the first
privately funded spacecraft to successfully attain
suborbital space. In 2011, Allen got back into the
space business with the formation of Stratolaunch
Systems which is developing an innovative airborne
launch system. It will utilize the largest aircraft ever
manufactured and will provide orbital access to
space with greater safety, cost-effectiveness and
flexibility. He founded the EMP Museum, Seattle’s
critically acclaimed interactive music, pop culture and
science fiction museum; the Flying Heritage
Collection — a collection of rare World War II aircraft
restored to flying condition; and Vulcan Productions,
the independent film production company behind
feature films like Hard Candy and Far From Heaven,
and documentaries and PBS series, including This
Emotional Life, Evolution, the Emmy Award-winning
Rx for Survival: A Global Health Challenge; and the
Peabody Award-winning Judgment Day: Intelligent
Design on Trial, and The Blues, executive-produced
by Martin Scorsese in conjunction with Allen and Jo
Lynn Allen.

Carey served on the USA Bid
Committee, a non-profit organization, created to prepare a successful application to host the
FIFA World Cup ™ in 2018 or 2022 on behalf of the
United States Soccer Federation.
Carey had the distinction of having two hit
shows simultaneously: the long-running comedy
“The Drew Carey Show,” which ran from 1995-2004,
and the improv/sketch show “Whose Line Is It
Anyway?” on which he was host and a producer.
The success of that show led to the creation of
“Drew Carey’s Improv All-Stars,” an improv group
that performs in showrooms across the country. In
July 2007, Carey was named the host of THE
PRICE IS RIGHT, America’s longest running
game show. He recently starred and co-produced
DREW CAREY'S IMPROV-A-GANZA, a new original, improvised sketch comedy show for GSN.
While in the Marine Reserves, his military
buzz cut and black wide-rim glasses became
part of his trademark look. He began his successful career as a comedian in April of 1986 at
the Cleveland Comedy Club. One of his first big
breaks was competing on Star Search ‘88. In
1991, Carey landed a spot on HBO’s 14th
Annual Young Comedians Special and
appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny
Carson. Carey openly credits Carson with
launching his career. He received a Star on
the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2003.
Carey’s interest in soccer began while
attending an L.A. Galaxy game in
2003. Shortly after, he started seeing
OWNERSHIP
every professional game he could find time for,
including European league games and U.S.
National Team qualifying games. He learned more
about the game and, during a later visit to Spain,
saw the Barcelona FC team in action. He also
worked as a press photographer during the 2006
World Cup in Germany, his efforts chronicled on a
Travel Channel show entitled Drew Carey’s
Sporting Adventures and his photos have appeared
in numerous publications.
During his travels Carey became fascinated
with the empowerment of supporters at such clubs
as Barcelona and Real Madrid, where leadership
positions are voted upon by the members. He
brought that idea to Sounders FC, where members
will vote on various matters, most notably the fate of
the general manager every four years. Carey is also
the driving force for Seattle’s 53-piece marching
band, Sound Wave. Carey, 53 (5/23/58), is a native
of Cleveland, Ohio and currently resides in Los
Angeles.

COACHES
Named the first head coach of Seattle Sounders
FC on Dec. 16, 2008, Sigi Schmid is recognized as
one of the most successful coaches in MLS history.
Since 1999, Schmid’s teams have won nine major
titles, including two MLS Cups.
Schmid is the most successful active coach in
MLS history and a two-time Coach of the Year. In the
2011 season he guided the Sounders FC to the playoffs for the third consecutive year, becoming the first
team in league history to reach the playoffs in its first
three seasons.
The Sounders FC also became the first team in
42 years to win three straight Lamar Hunt U.S. Open
Cup Championships when they beat Chicago, 2-0,
in front of a record crowd on the Xbox Pitch at
CenturyLink Field. Seattle defeated D.C. United, 2-1,
on the road to win the 2009 title and Columbus at
home, 2-1, to win the 2010 title. In 2008, Schmid led
his former club, the Columbus Crew, to its first MLS
Cup and Supporters’ Shield, earning MLS Coach of
the Year honors.
From 1999 through 2004 Schmid’s L.A. Galaxy
teams won four major competitions: 2002 MLS Cup,
2002 MLS Supporters’ Shield, 2001 U.S. Open Cup
and the 2001 CONCACAF Champions Cup.
He was voted the MLS Coach of the Year in his
first season, 1999. Altogether, his Galaxy teams
were 79-53-32 and reached the MLS Cup final four
times and won three division crowns.
Schmid ranks No. 1 in MLS career victories
(157). Overall, Schmid’s record in MLS is 157-11083. His combined postseason win total (20) is the
second-highest in MLS history. Schmid (350) has
surpassed Bob Bradley’s MLS record of 272 career
games coached.
Schmid is the only coach in MLS history to
coach two different teams to MLS Cup titles. He is
one of two to coach in four MLS Cup finals.
Twice Schmid has served as U.S. Under-20
National Team head coach, most recently in 2005 at
the FIFA World Championships. Schmid was an
assistant to Bora Milutinovic on the Americans’ 1994
World Cup team. He also was head coach for the
1991 World University Games and 1995 Pan
American Games.
Scores of Schmid’s UCLA players have played
professionally and internationally, including
Sounders FC technical director Chris Henderson
(1989-90). Others include Brad Friedel, Cobi Jones,
Paul Caligiuri, Eddie Lewis and Carlos Bocanegra.
Schmid first forged a winning tradition at his
alma mater, UCLA. After serving as an assistant, he
was elevated to head coach of the Bruins in 1980,
beginning a 19-year run at the helm. His first NCAA
championship was won in 1985 at Seattle’s
Kingdome. UCLA went on to claim two more national titles in 1990 and ’97. Schmid was named national coach of the year following the ’97 championship.
When he left to take over the Galaxy, his UCLA
teams had accumulated a record of 322-63-33.
Schmid is a member of both the National
Soccer and UCLA halls of fame. He was presented
with the Walt Chyzowych Lifetime Achievement
Award following the 2010 season.
Born in Tuebingin, Germany, Schmid relocated
with his family to the U.S. in 1956, and to Torrance,
Ca., in 1962. He was a four-year starter at UCLA
(1972-75). He graduated with a B.S. degree in economics in 1976 and later earned a M.A. in business
administration from the University of Southern
California. Schmid is a Certified Public Accountant.
He and his wife, Valerie, maintain a residence in
Manhattan Beach. He has four children: Erik, Lacey,
Kurt and Kyle. Kurt is a Sounders FC assistant
coach and scout. Kyle completed his career at UC
Irvine in 2008.

Sounders FC 2, at D.C. United 1 (Final)
2009 U.S. OPEN CUP
Seattle became the third first-year franchise in the modern era to win the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
Seattle’s achievement of claiming the Open Cup in its first season equaled that of D.C. United in 1996 and Chicago, an
expansion MLS team in 1998.
The Sounders FC cup run contributors featured a distinctive USL-1 flavor. All six former members of Seattle’s forerunner pro-franchise saw action in games in the play-in phase or tournament proper. In fact, they figured in nine of the 12 goals
scored. Sebastien Le Toux scored two goals and two assists in the play-in rounds, scored the game-winner in a quarterfinal win over Colorado, and had the game-winning assist to Roger Levesque in the Cup Final.
In addition to his game-winner in the Cup Final Levesque also scored the opening goal at Portland in the third round
and assisted on Nate Jaqua’s equalizer versus Houston. Stephen King scored three goals in cup play, including the overtime winner against the Dynamo.
The Sounders FC earned one of the four U.S. slots in the 2010-11 CONCACAF Champions League by virtue of the
Cup Final victory. The Open Cup winner receives an automatic spot in the Champions League preliminary round. The other
berths are determined by the outcome of the MLS regular season and playoffs. CONCACAF is the game’s governing body
for North America, Central America and the Caribbean.
2010 LAMAR HUNT U.S. OPEN CUP
2010 U.S. OPEN CUP
Playing before a record crowd in the tournament’s 97-year history, Sounders FC repeated as Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup
champions in 2010.
Sanna Nyassi scored twice as Seattle came from behind at home to defeat the Columbus Crew, 2-1, and become the
first team in 27 years to successfully retain the Cup. Sounders FC had defeated D.C. United in the 2009 final. The New York
Pancyprian Freedoms won back-to-back titles in 1982-83.
The crowd of 31,311 shattered the attendance record for the Cup Final. The largest previous attendance in the 97 years
of the tournament was 21,583 for the 1929 game in Brooklyn.
After tying the game in the 38th minute, Nyassi scored the game-winner in the 66th minute. Steve Zakuani's header from
a Fredy Montero cross caromed off the crossbar and Nyassi crashed home the rebound from 8 yards.
Sounders FC used a total of 22 players during its Cup run, with striker Nate Jaqua leading the Rave Green into the Final.
Jaqua scored in each of the first three matches, including a brace against both the L.A. Galaxy in the quarterfinal round and
Chivas USA in the semifinal. He finished as the tournament’s co-leader with five goals and was named the competition’s
outstanding player.
By virtue of the victory Seattle once again earned a berth in the 2011-12 CONCACAF Champions League.

2011 U.S. OPEN CUP
In 2011, Sounders FC became the first team in 42 years and fourth altogether to win the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup
three consecutive years.
35,615 fans packed CenturyLink Field—breaking the 98-year-old tournament’s attendance record for the second
straight year—and watched Seattle defeat the Chicago Fire 2-0 in the final. Fredy Montero broke a scoreless tie in the 78th
minute when he rebounded a Jeff Parke header after it was saved by Chicago keeper Sean Johnson, then hammered it into
the back of the net. Osvaldo Alonso sent the Sounders faithful into a frenzy when he added the finishing touch—a goal in
the 96th minute after weaving his way through multiple defenders. Kasey Keller’s shutout was highlighted by four saves.
Montero was named Player of the Tournament after scoring three goals, including the game-winning scores in the
semifinal and final. Mike Fucito added two goals and Nate Jaqua recorded a goal and two assists. In addition to his performance in the final, Keller also shut out FC Dallas in the semifinal game.
The last team to win three consecutive US Open Cup championships was Greek American out of New York from 19671969. Before that, only Stix, Baer and Fuller from St. Louis had won three straight from 1933-1935 and the Fall River
Marksmen from 1930-1932. The tournament win clinches Sounders FC a birth into the 2012-13 CONCACAF Champions
League.

2010 CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
In its first foray into international competition Sounders FC advanced to the group stage of the 2010-11 CONCACAF
Champions League. Seattle won its two-match aggregate preliminary series, 2-1, over AD Isidro Metapan of El Salvador. It
went on to finish fourth in Group C. CF Monterrey of Mexico and Costa Rica’s CD Saprissa advanced out of Group C to the
quarterfinal series, to be conducted in late February and early March 2011. Having won the 2010 U.S. Open Cup, the Rave
Green will return to the Champions League again in 2011-12.
Mike Fucito finished as the leading Sounders FC scorer (tied for 13th overall) with three goals during the group stage.
Topped by the crowd of 22,513 against Monterrey, Seattle supporters accounted for four of the top 11 crowds during the
preliminary and group stage of the 2010-11 tournament.

•
Western Conference teams will play each
West opponent three times (24 games):
n West teams will play four conference
opponents twice at home and once away
n They will play the other four conference
opponents once at home and twice away.
n The home and away games will be
reversed in 2013.
•

n Five of these will be at home and five will
be away.
n The East opponents each team faces at
home and away will be reversed in 2013.
Eastern Conference – 25 in-conference + 9
out-of-conference games:
•
Eastern Conference teams will play 25
games against other East teams:
n East teams will play seven conference
opponents three times each (21 games)
and
n Two conference opponents twice each
(four games).
•
Eastern Conference teams will play each
West opponent once each (9 games):
n Some will play four at home and five away
while others will play five at home and

The West opponents each team faces at home
and away will be reversed in 2013. POINT SYSTEM: Teams will receive three
points for a win, one point for a tie and zero
points for a loss.
REFEREES: All referees in MLS are either
USSF (United States Soccer Federation) or
CSA (Canadian Soccer Association) National
Referees. All MLS games played in the US will
be assigned by USSF and all games played in
Canada will be assigned by CSA.
GAME CLOCK: The official game time for all
Major League Soccer games will be managed
on the field by the referee. If necessary, the referee may also allot extra time (a.k.a. “stoppage
time”) at the end of each period (first half, second half, and if applicable, first overtime period
and second overtime period during playoff
matches) to allow for injuries, time-wasting or
other disturbances.
The stadium clock will display the time from 0:00
to 45:00 and from 45:00 to 90:00 (plus stoppage
time where applicable in each half). For statistical purposes, the minutes for goals, substitutions, yellow cards, etc., will be listed from the
first minute until the 90th minute. A goal scored
at 15 minutes 10 seconds will be listed as having been scored in the 16th minute. Events
occurring during stoppage time will follow the
international norm by being demarcated with a
“+” sign and the extra minutes. For example, a
goal scored three minutes into first half stoppage time will be officially identified as happening at “48+”.
GAME DAY ROSTERS: Each team can nominate 18 players for a game day roster. Teams
are allowed three substitutions per game.
140
CAUTIONS AND SUSPENSIONS: A player
will be suspended for one game upon receiving
his fifth yellow card – regardless of the nature of
the infraction that resulted in his being awarded
a yellow card. A second suspension of one
game would result after the awarding of an additional three cards, as would a third suspension
after the awarding of card number eleven. With
the “Good Behavior” incentive, it is possible for
MLS CUP PLAYOFFS: FORMAT
WHO QUALIFIES: Ten teams, the top five in
points from each conference at the end of the
regular season, qualify for the 2012 MLS Cup
Playoffs.
The fourth and fifth place teams in each conference will play a single knockout game, the winner of which will advance to the Conference
Semifinals and face the first place team in the
conference.
The four Conference Semifinals will be decided
by two-game aggregate series, with the lower
seed hosting the first leg and the higher seed
hosting the second leg. If the aggregate score is
tied after 180 minutes of play, two 15-minute
extra time periods will be played in their entirety,
followed by penalty kicks, if necessary.
The two Conference Championships will be
decided by a two-game aggregate series, with
the lower seed hosting the first leg and the higher seed hosting the second leg. If the aggregate
score is tied after 180 minutes of play, two 15minute extra time periods will be played in their
entirety, followed by penalty kicks, if necessary.
MLS Cup will be a single championship match
hosted by the higher seed. If the score is tied
after 90 minutes of play, two 15-minute extra
time periods will be played in their entirety, followed by penalty kicks, if necessary.
TEAM-STANDINGS TIE-BREAKING

2) If the teams are still equal in the standings,
the highest position shall be awarded to the
team with the greater goal difference
against all other teams during the regular
season. (goal differential)
3) If the teams are still equal in the standings,
the highest position shall be awarded to the
team scoring the greatest number of total
goals against all other teams during the
regular season. (total goals)
4) If the teams are still equal in the standings,
the procedures described in this section
shall be applied only to games played on
the road by each team against all other
teams during the regular season. (road 1-3)
5) If the teams are still equal in the standings,
the procedures described in this section
shall be applied only to games played at
home by each team against all other teams
during the regular season. (home 1-3)
6) If the teams are still equal in the standings,
the highest position shall be awarded to the

MLS RULES OF COMPETITION
a player to have a caution expunged. If a player
goes three games without receiving a yellow
card, after an initial warning, the player will have
one yellow card expunged. A player may take
advantage of the “Good Behavior” incentive only
once throughout the season.
7) If the teams are still equal in the standings,
the highest position in the standings shall
be determined by the toss of a coin.
8) The first tiebreaker in a three-way tie is also
head-to-head, but it is determined via
points-per-game versus the other two
teams. If two teams are tied in points-pergame head-to-head, the next tie breaker is
goal difference.
NOTE: If two teams remain tied after another
teams with the same number of points
advances during any step, the tie breaker
reverts to step 1 of the two-team format.
The team awarded the highest position in the
MLS standings will be the team with the greatest number of points (three points for a win, one
point for a tie, zero points for a loss). In the
event that two teams finish the regular season
with an equal number of points, the following
system will be used to break the tie:
1) The highest position shall be awarded to
the team with the better win/loss record in
current regular season games against all
other teams equal in points. (head-to-head
competition)

game-day squad during the regular season and
playoffs.
Salary & Budget:
•
142
Players occupying roster spots 1-20 count
against the club’s 2012 salary budget of
$2,810,000, and are referred to collectively
as the club’s Salary Budget Players.
n Roster spots 19 and 20 are not required
to be filled, and teams may spread their
salary budget across only 18 Salary
Budget Players.
n A minimum salary budget charge will be
imputed against a team’s salary budget
for each unfilled senior roster slot below
18.
n The maximum budget charge for a single
player is $350,000.*
n A Designated Player over the age of 23
counts as $350,000 against the club’s
salary budget, unless the player joins his
club in the middle of the season, in which
case his budget charge will be $175,000.
n A Designated Player 20 years old or
younger** (referred to as Young
Designated Players or Young DPs) to

n The budget charge for the midseason
signing of a Young DP is $150,000 and
this amount cannot be lowered with allocation funds.
n Clubs will not have to buy the third DP
roster slot to accommodate a Young
Designated Player whereas clubs are
normally required to buy that slot for a
one-time fee of $250,000.
n Clubs are responsible for all amounts
above the budget charge for all
Designated Players.
*See section entitled Allocation Money below,
under Player Acquisition Mechanisms, for
details on buying down a player’s budget
charge.
**Age of player is determined by year (not date)
of birth.

•
II. PLAYER ACQUISITION
MECHANISMS
MLS teams may acquire players and add them
to their rosters via the following mechanisms:
(A) ALLOCATION RANKING
The allocation ranking is the mechanism used
to determine which MLS club has first priority to
acquire a U.S. National Team player who signs
with MLS after playing abroad, or a former MLS
player who returns to the League after having
gone to a club abroad for a transfer fee. The allocation rankings may also be used in the event
two or more clubs file a request for the same
player on the same day when the discovery
period opens in December. The allocations will
be ranked in reverse order of finish for the 2011
season, taking playoff performance into
account.
Once the club uses its allocation ranking to
acquire a player, it drops to the bottom of the list.
A ranking can be traded, provided that part of
the compensation received in return is the other
club’s ranking. At all times, each club is
assigned one ranking. The rankings reset at the
end of each MLS League season.
Allocation Money
Allocation money is a resource available to
clubs in addition to their respective salary budgets.
A club may receive allocation money for:
(1) Failure to qualify for the MLS Cup Playoffs;
(2) The transfer of a player to a club outside of
MLS for value;
(3) Expansion status;
(4) Qualification for the CONCACAF Champ ions League;
(5) Trading in up to two Off-Budget roster spots;
(6) Funds from purchased third designated
player roster spots.
Each year the MLS Competition Committee
determines the allocation amount to be made
available to each club. Allocation money can be
traded by clubs. Allocation money does not
count against a club’s salary budget and can be
used:
To sign players new to MLS (that is, a player who did not play in MLS during the previous season).
(B) DESIGNATED PLAYER
The Designated Player Rule allows clubs to
acquire up to three players whose salaries
exceed their budget charges, with the club bearing financial responsibility for the amount of
compensation above each player’s budget
charge. Designated Player slots may be used to
acquire players new to MLS or to retain current
MLS players, subject to League approval.
In 2012, a Designated Player over the age of
23** will carry a salary budget charge of
$350,000, unless the player joins his club in the
middle of the season, in which case his budget
charge will be $175,000.
A Designated Player 20 years old or younger**
counts as $150,000 against the club’s salary
budget and a Designated Player 21-23 years old
counts as $200,000 against the club’s salary
budget.
Clubs have the option of “buying down” the
budget charge of a Designated Player with allocation money. The reduced charge may not be
less than $150,000.
The budget charge for the midseason signing of
a young Designated Player (23 years old and
younger) is $150,000 and this amount cannot
be lowered with allocation funds.
Each club has two Designated Player slots and
clubs are allowed to “purchase” a third
Designated Player slot for a one-time fee of
$250,000 that will be dispersed in the form of
allocation money to all clubs that do not have
three Designated Players. Clubs will not have to
buy the third DP roster slot to accommodate
Designated Players 23 years old and younger.
Designated Player slots are not tradeable.
** Age of player is determined by year (not
date) of birth.
143
•
In connection with the exercise of an option
to purchase a player’s rights or the extension of a player’s contract for the second
year provided the player was new to MLS in
the immediately prior year.
NOTE: To protect the interests of MLS and its
clubs during discussions with prospective players or clubs in other leagues, amounts of allocation money held by each club will not be shared
publicly.
MLS PLAYER RULES AND REGULATIONS SUMMARY
NOTE: The terms Homegrown and Generation
adidas are used to describe mechanisms by
which players are acquired. They are not roster
designations. All players’ roster slots are determined by their compensation and/or age as outlined above.
MLS PLAYER RULES AND REGULATIONS SUMMARY
(C) SUPERDRAFT
The 2012 MLS SuperDraft, held Jan. 12 in
Kansas City, Mo., consisted of two rounds of 19
picks for a total of 38 player selections. A supplemental draft was held Jan. 17 via teleconference and consisted of four rounds of 19 picks.
The majority of draft prospects are NCAA college seniors who have exhausted their college
eligibility. Generation adidas players and noncollegiate international players are also eligible
for selection in the SuperDraft and supplemental draft. Clubs may nominate players for the
League’s draft-eligible list, and only players from
that list may be selected.
144
Generation adidas is a joint program between
MLS and adidas that is dedicated to developing
exceptional domestic talent in a professional
environment. Each year, a handful of top
domestic underclassmen and youth national
team players are signed to the league and
placed in the SuperDraft through this program.
Generation adidas players also receive an educational stipend.
Draft Order: The Montreal Impact held the first
overall selection in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft as
expansion clubs are always given the top spot in
the SuperDraft and the Supplemental Draft. The
next eight selections went to clubs that did not
qualify for the 2011 MLS Cup Playoffs beginning
with the club with fewest regular season points
(3 points per win, one point per tie). The remaining ten positions were ranked by fewest regular
season points among the teams that were eliminated in the same round of the MLS Cup
Playoffs.
Unless claimed on waivers, a player who was
drafted by a particular team through the
SuperDraft or supplemental draft and did not
sign with the League, is placed on that team’s
“College Protected List” until the second
December 31 following the draft in question,
after which the team loses the rights to the player.
(D) TRADES
Players, SuperDraft and Supplemental draft
picks, allocation money, allocation rankings, and
international player slots may all be exchanged
in trades approved by the MLS League Office,
provided all of the necessary rules regarding
roster and salary budget compliance are met
and the trade is completed during a valid trading
period. No trades may occur after the Roster
Freeze Deadline of September 15, 2012 at 5
p.m. ET.
(E) DISCOVERY SIGNINGS
Clubs may make discovery claims on players
not yet under MLS contract who are not subject
to the allocation ranking or lottery mechanisms.
Each club has the opportunity to make six discovery signings per season (expansion teams
may make 10 discovery signings in their inaugural season). A club may have up to 10 discovery
claims on unsigned players at any time and may
remove or add players at any time. The last day
for discovery player signings is September 15,
2012 – coinciding with the roster freeze date and
trade deadline.
The six discovery signings can be used to fill
senior roster spots only. If multiple clubs claim
the same player using a discovery, the club that
filed the claim first will have first rights to the
player. Discovery claims expire following each
season. If the League and player are unable to
reach an agreement during the season, the club
that first filed the discovery retains the right of
first refusal in the event the player is later signed
by the League.
NOTE: To protect interests of MLS clubs in
scouting and negotiations with prospective players, the League office will not publicize the
names of players on club discovery lists, nor
specify if a discovery claim has been filed on a
particular player.
(F) HOMEGROWN PLAYER SIGNINGS
A club may sign a player to his first professional
contract without subjecting him to the MLS
SuperDraft if the player has trained for at least
one year in the club’s youth development program and has met the League’s Homegrown
Player criteria. Players joining MLS through this
mechanism are known as Homegrown Players.
There is no limit to the number of Homegrown
Players a club may sign in a given year.
(G) RE-ENTRY PROCESS
The 2012 Re-Entry Process will commence after
MLS Cup. The priority order for the Re-Entry
Draft is reverse order of finish in 2012, taking into
account playoff performance.
Available to all teams in Stage 1 of the Re-Entry
draft will be:
1. Players who are at least 23 years old and
have a minimum of three years experience
in MLS whose options were not exercised by
their clubs (available at option salary for
2013).
2. Players who are at least 25 years old with a
minimum of four years of MLS experience
who are out of contract and whose club
does not wish to re-sign them at their previous salary (available for at least their 2012
salary).
3. Players who are at least 30 years old with a
minimum of eight years of MLS experience
who are out of contract and whose club
(H) WAIVERS
A team may place a player on waivers at any
time during the regular season at which point he
is made available to all other teams. The waiver
claiming period shall commence on the first
business day after the League delivers notice to
teams and shall expire at 5 p.m. EST on the second business day after the Waiver Period
Commencement Date. The claiming period is 48
hours.
The Waiver Draft order is determined via points
per game once all teams have played at least
three MLS League games. If the waiver takes
place prior to all teams playing in at least three
League games, priority shall be granted based
upon the prior year’s performance, taking playoff performance first, with teams eliminated from
playoff contention at the same stage separated
according to their point totals through the end of
the regular season. New expansion teams shall
be at the bottom of the waiver order.
Once a team selects a player off waivers, that
club is automatically moved to the bottom of the
priority list for subsequent waiver selections in a
given season, regardless of its points-per-game
total. Players who may be placed on the MLS
waiver wire are as follows:
1. A player waived by an MLS team in the current season;
2. A player who completed his college eligibility within the past season, who was not
made available in the SuperDraft or
Supplemental Draft;
3. A player who has remaining college eligibility (and was not made available in the
SuperDraft or Supplemental Draft), but the
League at its discretion and after taking into
account exceptional circumstances determines the player may be offered an MLS
contract;
(I) LOTTERY
Some players shall be assigned to MLS teams
via the weighted Lottery process. Any team
assigned a player through the lottery in any particular season shall not be assigned another lottery player that season unless and until all
teams have received a lottery player or have
agreed to waive their option to participate in a
Lottery. The players made available through lotteries include:
1. Generation adidas players signed after the
MLS SuperDraft;
2. Draft eligible players to whom an MLS contract was offered but who failed to sign with
the League prior to the Draft.
The weighted lottery takes into consideration
each team’s performance over its last 34 regular season games and the most recent postseason. The team with the worst record over its last
34 regular season games (dating back to previous season if necessary and taking playoff performance into account) will have the greatest
probability of winning the lottery. Teams are not
required to participate in a lottery. Players are
assigned via the lottery system in order to prevent a player from potentially influencing his
destination club with a strategic holdout.
(J) EXTREME HARDSHIP CALL-UPS
Teams may add players to their roster in cases
of “extreme hardship” as follows: (1) a club with
three goalkeepers on its 30-man roster, but has
less than two available goalkeepers or (2) a
team has less than 15 available players.
Extreme hardship call-ups are made on a
game-by-game basis.
(K) SEASON-ENDING INJURY REPLACEMENTS (Season Ending Injury List)
A team with a player lost to a season-ending
injury can place the player on the Season
Ending Injury List and replace that player on its
roster, while remaining responsible for the full
amount of the injured player’s salary. A player
can be placed on the season-ending injury list
once another player has been signed as a
replacement (provided the team has budget
space). International player limits still apply at
the time a season-ending replacement is made
(with the player being replaced not counting
against those limits).
145
4. A player who has played in MLS previously
where his last MLS team does not wish to
exercise their right of first refusal, except in
the case of returning U.S. National Team
players as stated above.
5. A player who was drafted in the SuperDraft
or supplemental draft, and who after a trial
with the club is not offered a contract by the
first Monday of June.
MLS PLAYER RULES AND REGULATIONS SUMMARY
does not wish to re-sign them (available for
at least 105% of their 2012 salary).
Players who are not selected in Stage 1 of the
Re-Entry Draft will be made available in Stage 2.
Clubs selecting players in Stage 2 will negotiate
a new salary with the player.
Players who remain unselected after Stage 2
will be available to any MLS club on a first come,
first serve basis.
MLS PLAYER RULES AND REGULATIONS SUMMARY
(L) SHORT-TERM INJURY REPLACEMENTS (Disabled List)
A player who has a short-term injury can be
placed on the Disabled List once another player
has been signed as a replacement (provided
the team has budget space). The team will
remain responsible for the full amount of the
injured player’s salary on the salary budget.
Note: the injured player will have to sit out a minimum of six MLS League matches before he
can rejoin the team’s roster. International player
limits still apply at the time a short-term replacement is made (with the player being replaced
not counting against those limits).
NOTE: No changes may be made to a team’s
active full roster during the period beginning on
September 16, 2012 (day after Roster Freeze
Date) through the day after MLS Cup.
Nevertheless, a team may obtain players in
accordance with the extreme hardship rules and
procedures to replace players who are injured or
otherwise legitimately unavailable after the
Roster Freeze Date. Any other replacements
after the Roster Freeze Date may only be made
in exceptional circumstances in the League’s
sole and absolute discretion.
(III.) METHODS OF RELEASING
PLAYERS
146
(A) WAIVERS
Teams may waive players based on performance at any time during the MLS season.
Players with guaranteed contracts will continue
to have their salary budget charge applied to the
team salary budget, subject to any settlement.
Players on semi-guaranteed contracts can be
waived prior to July 1 of any year and free up the
corresponding budget space. If a player on a
semi-guaranteed contract is waived after July 1,
his salary budget charge will count against the
team’s salary budget and the team waiving the
player will not receive a replacement except
under the normal player acquisition mechanisms. Any settlement amount will be charged to
the team’s salary budget.
(B) TRANSFERS AND LOANS
An MLS player may be transferred or loaned at
any time to a team outside the League (subject
to that team’s Federation’s transfer window),
subject to the consent of the player.
The registration windows – the dates between
which MLS may request the transfer certificate
of a player under contract in another country –
are as follows:
January 21 – April 15 (Primary Window)
June 27 – July 27 (Secondary Window)
(C) CONTRACT EXPIRATION
When a player’s contract expires, the player
does not count against the roster or budget of
the team in question. Subject to the Re-Entry
Draft rules, a team retains the rights to the player indefinitely following the expiration of a contract only if attempts were made to re-sign the
player.
(D) BUYOUT OF GUARANTEED
CONTRACT
Teams may have the ability to buyout one guaranteed player as follows:
A Team may buy out one (1) guaranteed player
(including a DP’s) contract during the off-season
and free up the corresponding budget space.
Such a buyout is at the particular MLS Team’s
own expense.
A Team may not free up budget space with a
buyout of a player’s salary budget charge during
the season. Such a buyout will be conducted by
the League and count on a Club’s budget in a
manner consistent with current MLS guidelines.
(IV.) RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL
Right of first refusal grants one MLS club the
first opportunity to add a player to its roster in
the event that the player signs with MLS.
Holding a right of first refusal applies only within
MLS and does not indicate holding of the player’s International Transfer Certificate.
OUT OF CONTRACT PLAYERS / OPTIONS
NOT PICKED UP: Subject to the Re-Entry
Draft rules, a team retains the right of first
refusal to the player indefinitely only if attempts
were made to re-sign the player.
DRAFTED BUT NOT SIGNED: A player who
was drafted by a particular team through the
SuperDraft or supplemental draft and did not
sign, or who as of the first Monday in June is not
offered a contract after a trial and clears waivers,
is placed on that team’s “College Protected List”
until the second December 31 immediately following the draft in question, after which the team
loses the rights to sign the player.
PLAYER TRANSFERRED OUTSIDE MLS: If
a team receives allocation money as a result of
a player’s transfer, the team does not retain a
right of first refusal.

HISTORY
The tradition of professional soccer and the Sounders brand began with the arrival of the North
American Soccer League expansion franchise. For 10 seasons they were successful and entertaining on
the field, attracting some of the league’s largest crowds. Just as important, the original Sounders created
a legacy of developing local players capable of reaching the highest levels of the game.
In some respects, the Sounders paved the way for Seattle securing an NFL expansion franchise a
year later. The founding ownership group featured six of the same partners, including Lamont Bean,
Howard S. Wright, Lynn Himmelman, David Skinner, Lloyd Nordstrom and Herman Sarkowsky.
The Sounders played their first two seasons outdoors and under the Space Needle. Located on the
Seattle Center campus, Memorial Stadium provided a central location and an intimate setting, although
the crowds soon outgrew the initial 13,000-seat capacity. In fact, Seattle was the first NASL team to draw
a sellout and did so for nine of the final 16 games at Memorial.
With the completion of the Kingdome, the Sounders moved south in 1976, and a sold-out preseason
game against Pele and the Cosmos set a North American attendance record of 58,128.
From the outset, the Sounders played an energetic, entertaining style while utilizing British veterans
and young, mostly local, North American players. Although it won only two division titles, Seattle finished
with winning records in seven of 10 seasons, twice reached the championship game, Soccer Bowl, and in
1980 the Sounders won 25 matches – the most in NASL history.
In each Soccer Bowl, Seattle met the star-studded New York Cosmos. The 1977 final marked the final
competitive game for Pele. The Sounders only major trophy was the 1981 Trans-Atlantic Challenge Cup,
a midseason tournament involving the Cosmos, England’s Southampton and Scotland’s Celtic.
The NASL and Sounders peaked in popularity by 1980, and over the following two seasons attendance declined while the number of teams dropped from 24 to 13. Seattle bowed out after the 1983 season, and a year later the league halted operations.

FC SEATTLE STORM (1984-90)
HISTORY
It can be argued that the rebirth of professional soccer in North America began with FC Seattle. In
1984, a year after the original Sounders folded, a new team surfaced with a new objective: to cultivate the
best local talent and test it against the best in the business.
Funded by Eastside businessman Bud Greer and with former Sounders player and coach Jimmy
Gabriel serving as coaching director, FC Seattle’s approach was to create a pyramid system of youth
teams feeding a senior men’s program. That philosophy ran counter to the NASL era, when foreigners
comprised the bulk of the roster and domestic players were in the minority.
Beginning with a summer series of friendlies against NASL teams and the U.S. National Team at
Memorial Stadium, FC Seattle held its own and attracted an average of 6,669 fans. The first win came in
Vancouver against the Whitecaps, 2-1.
In 1985, the stakes were raised and a league took root. With the NASL now disbanded, clubs from
Europe, Mexico and South America were brought to Seattle. However, when British teams faced a worldwide travel ban, FC Seattle was forced to band together with other fledgling clubs to form the Western
Soccer Alliance. That became the forerunner of the American Professional Soccer League or, as it was
more widely known, the A-League.
Drawing on a mixture of former Sounders and stars from both Seattle Pacific Univ. and Washington
collegiate programs, Seattle played a mixture of league and foreign exhibitions through 1988. That campaign culminated with Seattle winning the Western Soccer League championship and, later, making a fivematch postseason tour of England. The Storm nickname was adopted prior to the 1989 season.
In 1990, the WSL merged with the East Coast’s American Soccer League to form the APSL. In all there
were 22 teams, but in 1991, with costs rising due to nationwide travel, membership fell to only nine clubs,
and Seattle was not among them. After going dormant, it ceased operations altogether in 1992, although the
brand was resurrected and used by an entry in the regional Pacific Coast League through 1995.

SEATTLE SOUNDERS (1994-2008)
HISTORY
In 1994, the World Cup was coming to America and, riding the resulting new wave of enthusiasm, professional soccer returned to Seattle after a three-year absence. The Sounders name was revived and the
club, owned by Scott Oki and coached by Alan Hinton, joined the American Professional Soccer League.
From the outset, the Sounders nucleus was largely formed by homegrown talent. Hinton tapped into
the college players being produced at both Seattle Pacific and Washington, and added experience in the
form of past pros with local connections.
When Seattle won the 1995 A-League championship in its second season, eight of the 13 players who
saw action originally came from the surrounding area’s youth leagues. In 1996, when the Sounders repeated, nine starters were local products. Player/coach Neil Megson had been with both the original Sounders
and Tacoma Stars for a total of nine seasons.
MLS opened play in 1996, and the A-League was thereafter classified as second division.
Consequently, many of the top players were lured elsewhere. The Sounders remained competitive, qualifying for the playoffs in all but two of their 15 seasons and winning five divisional crowns.
In 2002 under the management of new majority investor Adrian Hanauer and the coaching of Brian
Schmetzer, the club reached for new goals. Hanauer led the local effort to land a new MLS team and also
moved the team from Memorial Stadium to the newly-completed CenturyLink Field. In fact, in the stadium’s first event, the Sounders played to a USL record crowd of 25,515.
On the field, Seattle won a club-record 23 games in Schmetzer’s first season. From 2004-07, it
advanced to the USL championship game three times, winning twice. In U.S. Open Cup play, the
Sounders eliminated four MLS teams in reaching back-to-back semifinals in 2007 and ’08.

CENTURYLINK FIELD

In 1996, Paul G. Allen obtained an option to purchase the Seattle Seahawks and launched a
campaign to win public support for a new world-class football/soccer stadium and exhibition center. Six years later, the dream became reality as the Seahawks opened the 2002 preseason against
the Indianapolis Colts in new Seahawks Stadium. The stadium was renamed Qwest Field in 2004
and in 2011 became CenturyLink Field. The facility, built atop the site of the Kingdome, is not only
home to the Seahawks, but the stadium accommodates many levels of soccer competition, including Major League Soccer, amateur, international, World Cup and collegiate soccer.
CenturyLink Field is designed with a 67,000 seat capacity (38,500 for MLS regular season),
with 5,000 additional seats available for special events, and 1,400 seats for fans with disabilities.
With a roof covering 70 percent of the seating area, fans enjoy wide, comfortable seats with sideline seating. The facility also features a dozen elevators and expansive concourses with an ample
provision of concessions stands and restrooms.
In 2009, CenturyLink Field was awarded the “Event Recycling Award” from the Washington
State Recycling Association. As a host for over 300 events and more than 1.5 million visitors annually, CenturyLink Field and CenturyLink Field Event Center recycled 70 percent of more than 1,100
tons of waste material generated; including paper products, plastics, co-mingled metals, wood and
compost. For more information about the home of Sounders FC, go to centurylinkfield.com.

CENTURYLINK FIELD FUNDING
The $430 million facility is owned by the public and was funded by a private-public partnership.
Private contributions totaled at least $130 million, while the public contributed up to $300 million
through a lottery and a variety of taxes generated by events in the stadium/exhibition center.
A breakdown of the funding package:
• $130 million private investment led by Paul Allen
• $127 million from new, sports related games, similar to the Mariners’ baseball-themed scratch
games
• $101 million in sales taxes collected in King County attributable to events in the stadium/exhibition center
• $56 million from facility admission and parking taxes
• $15 million from extending King County’s share of the existing hotel-motel tax
• $1 million per year of in-kind advertising for the new lottery games will be provided by Paul Allen
• All excess stadium revenues will fund youth athletic facilities throughout Washington State in
addition to a $10 million contribution from Paul Allen
• Paul Allen agreed to pay for any construction cost overruns
• As an added measure, the debt on the Kingdome was retired, freeing property taxes for other
purposes
FIRST & GOAL INC.
155
In June of 1997, Washington State voters approved a funding package to build a new
football/soccer stadium and exhibition center. With that, Paul G. Allen and Football Northwest created First & Goal Inc., an entity that represented the interests of CenturyLink Field in the construction of the new stadium and now manage the stadium and event center on a daily basis.

The Seattle Sounders FC will continue a pre-game tradition before selected home
matches by presenting a Golden Scarf to a group or individual who has made an impact

BADGE & COLORS
BADGE AND COLORS
BADGE:
• The badge represents the organization’s personality, image, core competencies and characteristics. This design is loosely based on a heraldic shield, which helped identify combatants who
were otherwise hidden by their armor.
• The Seattle Sounders FC badge was developed with two distinct layers to represent the partnership between the ownership, the community, the players and the fans.
• The partners are all united under one banner which carries the team name.
• The Space Needle is a universally recognized icon and symbol of Seattle.
• The overall design is an updated, contemporary treatment of traditional shapes. The effect is
clean, bold, aggressive and uniquely Northwest.
COLORS:
Sounder Blue (Pantone 647C)
• A reference to Puget Sound and the water that surrounds Seattle, which helps define its citizens.
• Blue signifies stability, strength and loyalty.
Rave Green (Pantone 370C)
• Definition: rave (adj): c: to talk with extreme enthusiasm <raved about its beauty>
• Green is a reference to the forests of the Pacific Northwest. It also represents the passionate,
optimistic spirit of the community.
Cascade Shale (Pantone 433C)
• Cascade is a reference to the spectacular range of mountains on Seattle’s eastern horizon.
• Shale is a sedimentary rock formed under intense pressure. As the dark gray in the Sounders
FC palette, it signifies an iron resolve.
