The phrase “You Will Hear Us” is being used with our blessing and at the suggestion of the Alliance Council on Seattle Sounders FC’s 2018-19 kits. It will appear on the necktape of the rave green primary jersey for the next two seasons.
One of the first resolutions written and approved by the Council was that Council would have influence on kit design. As Council reviewed their history and pressed to expand that influence, they discussed the ability to use the phrase with me, the primary author of that resolution.
It means a lot of things to a lot of different people — Alliance Council, Sounder at Heart, the club. Each will tell that story soon.
For now, I’ll just stare at those four words, the 16 characters, and know I was heard. No, that’s wrong. We are heard. Our communities within communities, united in love of soccer and Puget Sound are heard. Whether our voices are in support, cause fear, or intended to improve the organization. They are heard.

You will hear us in your sleep. You will hear us from the deep.
This is our Sound.
This teaser was released to us by Sounders FC. We still haven’t seen the full shirt, let alone the complete kit.
