The Seattle Sounders Record in the CONCACAF Champions League (includes the CONCACAF Champions Cup)

The 1996 A-League Seattle Sounders qualified for the 32nd edition of the CONCACAF Champions Cup by winning the A-League in 1995 and represented the United States. [Major League Soccer was born in 1996.] The Sounders scored a club record 10 goals in demolishing SV Transvaal (Surinam) 10-0 in the USA/Caribbean Playoff.

The win put the Sounders in the Final Group Stage, where they lost 0-2 against Comunicaciones (Guatemala).

The Sounders would have to wait 14 years to return to the CONCACAF tournament, qualifying in 2010/11, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2015/16, 2018, 2020 and 2022. [The most in MLS]

The Sounders have played 49 CCL games, with 20 wins, 11 draws and 18 losses (84 goals for and 75 goals conceded).

The Sounders record in the SCCL Era: 45 games, 19 wins, 11 draws, 15 losses (73 goals for, 58 goals conceded).

The Sounders SCCL Home record: 25 games, 16 wins, 2 draws, 7 losses (58 goals for, 34 goals conceded).

The last 9 Sounders wins in the CCL were at home.

Here's a list of the Seattle Sounders FC Top 5 CCL home games in club history. [I would imagine that the Final against Pumas would take over the #1 slot.]
