One of the things that happens in Colorado is soccer in the snow. It looks like Seattle Sounders FC 2 are being afforded the chance to experience that phenomenon tonight.

However, unlike the MLS game in Minnesota earlier this year it won’t be snow blowers clearing the lines, but Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC fans.

No matter the result it looks like S2 are in for an interesting night of soccer in the Rockies.
nos audietis in somniis | nos audietis in altum
you will hear us in your sleep | you will hear us from the deep
this is our Sound
Keys to the Game:
- Score early to force the Switchbacks out of their shell.
- Keep the passes simple and safe in the back.
- Avoid complacency in possession.
