With the announcement that the Seattle Sounders would be traveling to Tucson to wrap up their preseason training Sounder at Heart has partnered with a specialty travel agency to create a unique opportunity to watch a some games, hang out as a real world community and meet some people from the club.
The 2013 Desert Diamond Cup will feature Real Salt Lake, New England Revolution, New York Red Bulls and Seattle Sounders FC. This opportunity for Sounder at Heart readers is a chance to spend a long weekend of dry, warm weather focused on the team you love.
Tucson has some other things going on at the time (PGA Tour event, rodeo) as well, but the focus of the group that goes down will to be as much about the Sounders and soccer as possible. Four total games, a live Q&A with Dave, a session meeting some Sounders staff (date & participants to be finalized closer to the trip). There will of course be plenty of informal time as well (my wife is excited to do some of the resorty things, I envision many a happy hour).
TravelCenter4U worked to get group rates on air, hotel, transfer and Sounder at Heart is taking care of the soccer end of things. We'd love to have you join us.
