Previously it had been announced that the first home game would be August 16th (at a confirmed 7PM) against Communicaciones of Guatemala. The first away match was previously announced as at Monterrey on August 23rd but at 5 PM. That match is the chance at history, as American sides still have yet to win a competitive match in Mexico.
All Seattle Sounders home matches in the 2011-12 CONCACAF Champions League will be at 7 PM and tickets are now on sale. General Admission (great time to try this btw) are only 15$ (plus potential fees). With only a few categories all at lower costs the CCL is a great time to sit in other places and enjoy a different experience than you are used to enjoying at Century Link Field.

Seattle's CCL success looks to be fairly well know by match day four with seven points seeming likely. The toughest home match of the Group Stage is the match six, and the Sounders may not need those points. If they do need them it will be could be a key game on the 2011 year. The crowd should be large, with more away support than any other competitive match on the year.
Ten in all matches would ensure they advance no matter any other results. Anything less than 10 total needs help from others in the Group.
