One hundred days ago the Seattle Sounders won MLS Cup 2016. Finally, they play at home, as champions. Sunday’s 4 PM kickoff will be surrounded by a pomp and circumstance this fanbase has yet to enjoy. Facing the Sounders are one of MLS’s original teams, one without a trophy. The New York Red Bulls come to Puget Sound not to coronate Seattle, but to destroy the moment. RBNY want a victory. They want to put 2016 behind them. They want to earn their own star.
We have our drums. Our kings will walk on the field. We will join them in song. We will keep climbing. We will have our Cup, our star and the voices of thousands and thousands. For in 2017 we are champions. We reign.
Baldomero Toledo is the center referee.
Both Brad Evans (calf) and Aaron Kovar (groin) are injured for the Sounders. Roman Torres is suspended. Connor Lade (ACL) and Gonzalo Veron (hamstring) are injured and will not play for the Red Bulls. Neither team has a player in danger of suspension due to accumulation.
