Last year the Seattle Sounders set a record with 31,311 tickets sold when they beat the Columbus Crew in the 2010 US Open Cup Final. As the club attempts to push back their own record (because we know they will) they start the journey with 15$ seats that go on sale on Tuesday September 6th, 2011. It is nearly certain that the various Supporters Groups will have their large swaths of tickets, and of course this gives the people of Seattle an opportunity to see a Championship on home soil (or rubber). The Chicago Fire are this year's opponent. Holders of four Open Cups their path included two USLPro teams and a New York Red Bulls team that practically withdrew. This will be their biggest match of the year, and traveling support should be expected.
With a game like this the Sounders can be very flexible in adjusting how many seats they can sell. There is no need for an artificial limit, and with the game on national TV (Fox Soccer) there will be a significant push. For those aspiring soccer evangelists a match where history will be made regardless of who wins is probably a good place to start.
