It was announced today that Seattle Sounders FC 2 and Sounders FC U 23’s will be having a doubleheader on May 28th. Both Matches will be played at Starfire. S2 will be the opening feature as they play host to Sacramento Republic FC in a match that will kick off at 2:00 pm. Following that game the Sounders FC U 23’s will be playing the TSS Rovers at 5:00 pm.
This match should give the Sounders FC scouting department a good look at some of the up and coming talent from the area. Sounders FC Director of Player Personnel Kurt Schmid said via press relase, “The Pacific Northwest is full of young talent, and it is mutually beneficial for our club to continue to build its relationship with Sounders U23,”
This could also turn out to be one of the best attended U23’s matches of the season. “Having the opportunity to train with and play alongside the professionals allows them access to what it takes at the next level.” Said Sounders U23 co-owner Cliff McElroy.
TSS Rovers are based in Vancouver, BC. They replace Crossfire in the PDL Northwest.
