Seattle Sounders v Portland Timbers, Desert Friendlies: Game time, TV schedule and live stream

There’s a chance that Clint Dempsey and Steve Zakuani play soccer again. You should watch.

It’s time for Seattle Sounders soccer. Saturday night’s game against the Portland Timbers is the first of 2017. It could feature the return to the field of both Clint Dempsey and Steve Zakuani. Head Coach Brian Schmetzer gets the opportunity to mix starters and rotational players together as five players are still with national teams and two more are injured. As it is the first match of the preseason most players will probably only play 45 minutes.

If you are new to Sounder at Heart our gamethreads for the team will always include the following - site motto, keys to game, how to watch, and how we’re watching. Welcome to 2017.
