Even though it still feels like the Seattle Sounders just won MLS Cup, the boys will be back in training next week. They will have their first day of training next Tuesday, January 24 at Starfire Sports training facility in Tukwila. The club also released their entire 2017 preseason schedule.
After spending five days in Tukwila, the Sounders will head to Tucson, AZ from January 29 to February 8, which will include a Desert Friendly against the Portland Timbers on February 4 and a scrimmage against the San Jose Earthquakes on February 7.
The Sounders will then return home for a week before they head back out on the road to Charleston, SC to take part in the 2017 Carolina Challenge Cup. They will spend 11 days in the Charleston area and have preseason matches scheduled against the Charleston Battery (Feb. 18), Atlanta United (Feb. 22) and the Columbus Crew (Feb. 25).
Seattle will only be home for a few days before they head back out on the road for the first game of the 2017 MLS season against the Houston Dynamo on March 4 at 5:30 pm PT.
