First a plug for the ECS pregame fest at Fuel/McCoys, and even more fun is that they are hosting an MLS All Star game viewing party at the Atlantic Crossing next week. Go to at least one of these events. If not both. Give me Fire. I have been looking forward to this [...]

Tradition and history are hard for a young team and a young league. In Seattle there is a team that is trying to connect to a 30 plus year journey, but there are also attempts to create new history as well. The Emerald City Supporters did there part. Sometimes in connection with [...]

Last Night Our History Became Legend

Sounder at Heart at related • 4 views
To borrow from the impressive five section TIFO from the Emerald City Supporters, last night the latest chapter in the Seattle Sounders legend started. It started with a March on the Match, the pre-game celebration, an enormous crowd that Harkes considered on par with Europe, but most importantly a THREE - NIL victory over [.

Doug (fellow member of 214) and I went to the scrimmage. We got there 12 minutes into the first half and missed two of the four most important events of the day. Since I missed them, I recap quickly. The First Seattle Wolves Goal. Gareth Waite went down with a blow to the head. [...]

For the Fans and For the Players Supporter’s Groups Matter

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views
Soccer/Football/Futbol is different from most professional sports in America. Most clubs don't have cheerleaders, they don't need public address announcers or reader boards telling fans when to clap their hands. Ideally, they don't even need a marching band. In Seattle's case we are going to have the Sound Wave, but we will [.

Sigi Schmid Fan Conference

Sounder at Heart at related • 1 view
I like the way this team thinks. We the fans are a part of it, it is truly our team. It is a team that has valued the passion that we have for our region, that tries to connect in ways that most American teams either don't or can't. Tonight the fan conference was [...]

Democracy in Sports – What does it mean?

The young movement in America has at its strongest example the light of Barcelona and Real Madrid. A regular fan (ok, not so regular they are always rich businessmen really) can be elected as the President. They can urge the manager to sign certain players (Henry) and free up funds in order to [...

Supporters group has plans to "mystery shop" to identify people reselling general admission tickets at a significant profit.

Scalping is a practice any fan of live events is well aware of. Even if it's not actually illegal, it is generally seen as an annoyance at the very least. Well, Emerald City Supporters are doing their small part to curtail the practice.

You may think you missed the start of the Argentine football season, you would be wrong. The league canceled its first week in an effort to save money. The tough economic times hit Argentina as hard as anyone, maybe harder. Now the AFA is going to break their TV contract to try and double [...]

Supporter’s Groups - more than emotional support

Sounder at Heart at related • 1 view
In my previous story on how supporter's groups can influence the level of talent signing to the league as well as fan interest I failed to cover a major factor. This factor also relates to expansion and the American/Canadian desire to see top-flight soccer in their home nation. This factor is again how atmosphere/fan passion [.
