Sounders Open 2013 Against Montreal Impact On March 2nd

Lamar Neagle gets to return home to open his 2013 MLS season. - Richard Wolowicz

For the fifth straight season Seattle Sounders FC open their MLS season at home. In 2013 they will face the Montreal Impact.

The past four seasons saw the Seattle Sounders open at home and 2013 will see a repeat of that. In 2013 the Montreal Impact will make their first visit to Seattle as an MLS side when the two teams face off on March 2nd to open both teams' league play.

At this time the league has not revealed broadcast data for First Kick or the rest of the nine total matches on the opening weekend.

Only four teams will host home openers in week two so at this point it is not known whether or not the Sounders will get an MLS bye in-between their CONCACAF Champions League series against Tigres. Those two matches will be midweek. The first will be on the road in Torreon Monterrey between March 5th and 7th. The return leg is a week later in Seattle.

All Cascadia teams open at home during the first weekend. Five of the nine opening weekend matches are inter-conference contests.
