Portland! It's Portland! We're Playing Portland for Charity!

A little bird gave me this info a few days back but swore me to secrecy. But now it's official! Portland, March 11 at Qwest! Tickets go on sale Wednesday.

RENTON, Wash. – The Seattle Sounders FC announced today details for the club’s inaugural "Community Shield" match, which will take place on Thursday, March 11 at 6 p.m. on the Xbox Pitch at Qwest Field. The Sounders FC will face the Portland Timbers of the USL in the pre-season training match.

General Admission tickets for the event will go on sale Wednesday, February 10, at 10 a.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for youth (6-17). Children under the age of six are free. Tickets will be available at www.SoundersFC.com, by calling 800-745-3000, all Ticketmaster outlets and the Qwest Field Box office.

Proceeds from the match will benefit the team’s four community partners: Boys and Girls Club of Washington State, Save the Children, Seattle SCORES and Washington Youth Soccer. Following the match the teams will sign autographs from the field.

Best quote on the topic comes from "ravegreen1" on the GoalSeattle boards:

ah now I get to hate them AND give back to the community. Perfect.

Couldn't have said it better myself!
