The friendly was moved up to allow fans to watch the first game of the 2017 Gold Cup for the US Men’s national team against Panama. They are hoping to allow Sounders fans to watch as many as four of their players play in that game — Clint Dempsey, Jordan Morris, Cristian Roldan and Roman Torres.
The team will be hosting a viewing party for that Gold Cup match in the North Plaza of CenturyLink Field. All fans with tickets for the friendly are encouraged to stay to watch the game. More details will be announced at a later date.
Secondly, they pushed back the kickoff against FC Dallas on Oct 15 from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm. The third and final change is for the game against San Jose Earthquakes on July 23. Originally scheduled for 7:00 pm, it was moved back a half hour to 7:30 pm.
