The MLS Cup is officially sold out, and thousands of Sounders fans will be turning out to CenturyLink Field this weekend to show their support. If you weren’t able to score any tickets, you may be in luck: Captain Morgan is giving away free tickets to 10 people over the age of 21 with the first, middle or last name “Morgan” on game day.
So if you were lucky enough to buy tickets and/or be named Morgan, consider getting there early to beat the crowds, and check out some of these activities before kickoff.
With thousands of fans coming to see the game, public transit is the most cost-efficient method of getting to CenturyLink Field. The Link light rail has two stops within walking distance of the stadium: International District Chinatown station and Stadium station.
If you’re coming from further outside of Seattle, the Sounder train runs as far north as Everett and far south as Lakewood.
Chinatown International District
The Chinatown International District is less than a mile away from the stadium and is home to some of Seattle’s best food. You can find a slew of restaurants serving up anything from dim sum to sushi to pho, which you can also expect to be cheaper than concessions inside CenturyLink.
Show your Sounders pride by attending the March to the Match. Meet up in Occidental Square at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, where you can join other fans, broadcaster Ken Carson and the Sounders FC official band as you march together to CenturyLink Field.
Take photos with a 14-foot replica of the MLS Cup trophy which will also be on display in Occidental Square on Sunday.
If you have kids, swing by the Soccer Celebration at CenturyLink Field North Plaza and the NW and SW Marshalling area. Activities include a large interactive kids area, inflatable games, face painting, music and more.
