MLS Cup is touring the Puget Sound

Sounders win not just for Seattle, but for the people of the Sound

UPDATE: On Friday, the Philip Anschutz Trophy will be visiting the Seattle Aquarium from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. PT, followed by a stop at Pike Place Market beginning at 1:45 p.m. until 2:45 p.m. PT. and then to the Space Needle at 3:30 p.m. PT. Fans will be able to see it and take photos at all three locations.

On Saturday, the trophy will be at the CenturyLink Field ProShop from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Having a parade through downtown Seattle was right, just, and wonderful. It was a great moment for the people of Seattle and the city’s closest suburbs. But Sounders fans are more than just residents of Seattle. This team is quite literally named after “the people of the Puget Sound.” To that effect, MLS Cup is touring a greater range of locales.

On Wednesday, it hit up Olympia and the Washington State Capitol.

More fans and dignitaries were able to see their trophy.

On Thursday, the MLS Cup yachted along a ferry route.

It wasn’t alone.

This is a celebration of the Sounders — both the team and the people. It feels rather certain that the MLS Cup, our MLS Cup, will continue to travel and meet people beyond the Seattle city limits. This is our Sound.

Thursday’s tour events include


11:00 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. PT - Microsoft Campus (Building 37, 16071 NE 36th Way, Redmond, WA 98052).

1:30 - 2:30 p.m. PT - Columbia Center's Sky View Observatory (701 5th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104)

5:30 p.m. PT - Thursday Night Football at CenturyLink Field (800 Occidental Avenue S, Seattle, WA 98134)
