Well, it is time, yes, the boys are back in town. And this time the town is T-Town, Grit City, Tac Town, our very own City of Destiny, Tacoma. So come on out to the ballpark tonight to see Seattle Sounders FC 2 AKA #TheFuture kickoff their season on a field not originally made for soccer, but lovingly transformed to accommodate it. This is the hard launch of S2v2 and it is going to be fun.
The opponent will be our rivals from the south, Portland Timbers 2, who are historically a veritable punching bag for S2 and have never won in Washington State. That was the Ezra/Starfire era though and this era is new, fresh, ready to be defined. T2 may sense an opening having defeated S2 2-0 in a preseason matchup three weeks ago, but that wasn’t in front of thousands of Tacomans ready to cheer for live in-person soccer in their city.
Let’s start out this new era with a demoralization of T2. Watch it happen with us.
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:
- Feed off the crowd.
- Keep shape to avoid getting hit on the counter.
- Christen the pitch with many goals.
