Sounders Answer Rest Of Alliance Questions

After the live Q&A session Seattle Sounders FC committed to answering the rest of the questions that were submitted by Alliance members. Many of these passed through my hands at some point, though not all. Several had to be condensed together as they covered similar issues. But in the final versions of the questions as submitted to the club through the Council or through twitter submissions they answered.

Many of the questions and answers are not of broad interest, but there are a few that should be highlighted.

Two related to finances of the club. First the club announced a 92% renewal rate on season tickets with 1000 new season ticket holders added. During the meeting they announced that every suite is sold for 2012. The other most notable financial situation is that the organization paid "multiple millions of dollars" in transfer fees. Those fees do not show up on any list relating to salary cap or relationship of payroll to wins.

The club is also listening to its fans. Vuvuzelas are no more. Healthy food options are available. Only Seattle gets female and child kits for the alternate uniforms.

Of course many of the questions are answered in a mix of PR and business speak. Let's remember that this Democracy is quite limited as all powers are granted by the owners. Again, the link to the remaining Q&A at SoundersFC.com.
