Cascadia Summit 2012 Canceled: Sounders Eye Friendly With Latin American Team

The Cascadia Summit will be taking at least a one-year hiatus. The news about the preseason, round-robin tournament between the Seattle Sounders, Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps was officially broken by Timbers owner Merritt Paulson in this tweet:

@piltdownman7 there will be no summit in 2012. SEA CONCACAF sched makes it near impossible plus we now have another reg season game anyway

That news was confirmed by Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer, who said they are in the process of trying to schedule a friendly against a Latin-American team on Feb. 29 in preparation for their CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal match against Santos Laguna on March 7.

In a conversation earlier this year, Paulson had told me that the plan was to host this year's Cascadia Summit in Portland with next year's Summit potentially moving to Vancouver. It's unclear where this year's cancellation leaves future Summits.
