The Seattle Sounders Record in the CONCACAF Champions League (May we win our 50th CCL match!)


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).

1-4 against Necaxa (Mexico) – two goals from Cuauhtemoc Blanco.

And 0-11 against Cruz Azul (Mecixo)!

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.]


Pumas UNAM won the CONCACAF Champions Cup in 1980, 1982 and 1989 (never SCCL).

Pumas UNAM all-time away record: 36 games, 8 wins, 18 draws, 10 losses (47 goals for, 47 goals against).

Pumas UNAM record in Finals: 7 games, 3 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss (11 goals for, 9 goals conceded).
