Players and coaches continue to line up for a chance to participate in Zach Scott’s testimonial match on March 1 at Memorial Stadium.
The latest names to be added to the roster are Brad Evans and Osvaldo Alonso, who will serve as coaches. They are also the last two original MLS Sounders.
A testimonial match is common practice in English soccer to hold one last non-competitive match to honor a departing player that has spent many years with one club.
The roster will include players from every year of Scott’s career from 2002-2016. Among the names are Kasey Keller, Marcus Hahnemann, Cam Weaver and Roger Levesque. All but three players on the roster have played with Scott professionally — Sporting Director Chris Henderson, S2 head coach Ezra Hendrickson and a friend of Scott’s from high school. His brother and son will also participate.
Tickets for the upper grandstand will be available for $10.20, lower grandstand for $20 and $50 for on-field seating. Tickets can be purchased here.
All of the proceeds will be put toward Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Fund, the Seattle Sounders’ RAVE Foundation and a college fund for Scott’s three children. Scott’s daughter’s friend Avery is suffering from a brain tumor, and Scott’s decision to donate some of the profits to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Fund is a direct result of that.
