Sounders return to Desert Diamond Cup in 2015

New, 3 comments

The 2015 version of the Desert Diamond Cup preseason tournament will include Seattle for the third straight year.

Jennifer Stewart

With several games left in the regular season the plans for 2015 are already coming together. Seattle Sounders FC are one of six MLS sides that will compete for the next Desert Diamond Cup. This preseason tournament in Tucson, Arizona will be in its fourth year and is a handy way to avoid snow (except that one time). Kino Sports Complex, Casa Grande and Bradenton are all now regular gathering places for MLS teams trying to get away from their big cities during their preparations.

In 2015 Colorado Rapids, Montreal Impact, New England Revolution, Real Salt Lake and Sporting Kansas City will be the clubs joining Sounders FC down in SE Arizona.

All tickets for the matches are $18 for the triple-headers.
