New, 14 comments

The Sounders Academy U-18s will face the Vancouver Whitecaps U-18s in Bellingham. From the team release;

U18 Academy to Face Whitecaps on Saturday

The Sounders FC U18 Academy team will start the New Year by playing the Vancouver Whitecaps FC U18 Residency team on Saturday afternoon in Bellingham, Washington. First kick is set for 1 p.m. PT at Whatcom Community College.

The exhibition match will help prepare the Rave Green for a busy USSDA schedule later this month and in February. Both the U16 and U18 academy teams travel to Sacramento to play California Development Academy (CDA) on January 16 before returning home to play Crossfire Premier on January 23 at Lake Washington High School. In all, the Sounders FC teams will play eight league matches (including six on the road) by February 20.

The location for the match versus Crossfire seems to be changing. This is its third listed venue. No matter what I will be at the match and doing a post-match meet-up in a Redmond bar afterwords. Our location is also still to be finalized, but should have word by the end of the week.
