Season ticket holders have another event to add to their calendar: Seattle Sounders FC will be holding their seventh annual Alliance Business Meeting on Nov. 12. Like last year it will be held at the Paramount Theater in downtown Seattle, and like every year it is expected to be hosted by Sounders FC owners Joe Roth, Adrian Hanauer, and Drew Carey (possibly via Skype.)
The Alliance Business Meeting is akin to a stockholders presentation, one of the few opportunities that fans and supporters get to interact one-on-one with the people who run their club. The meeting will feature notes about the team's successes over the past year, changes that have been made, and will end with a QA period in which the team will answer fan questions posted on Twitter. The line on "turf" questions starts at 1:5. Easy money.
The club's trophies are also typically on hand, and you can bet the Cascadia Cup will be in attendance for the first time since 2011.
All season ticket holders and Sounders FC Alliance members are invited, and the event usually draws a pretty decent crowd. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m.
