Seattle Sounders 'Won't Turn Anyone Away' For U.S. Open Cup Final

Seattle Sounders season-ticket holders have already been given the opportunity to buy their seats for the Oct. 4 U.S. Open Cup final at CenturyLink Field against the Chicago Fire. Even if every season-ticket holder were to buy their seats, there should still be plenty to go around when the general public is allowed to start buying on Tuesday.

"We won't turn anyone away," Sounders GM Adrian Hanauer said when asked if there were plans to open extra seats for the final if demand warranted.

Last year, the Sounders set an Open Cup record when 31,311 showed to see a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Crew. It's hard to say if this year's game will prove to be a bigger draw.

This year's game could benefit from the fact that this will be the Sounders' first home game in nearly two weeks, as they will be coming off a stretch of matches in Canada, Guatemala and New England. There will also be an added sense of history, as the Fire will be trying to tie Bethlehem Steel's all-time record of five Open Cup titles and the Sounders will be trying to become the first team since 1969 to three-peat.
