As such, we plan to cover it that way, beginning with this daily Road to the MLS Cup 2016 podcast to keep you updated on all happenings with the Sounders, their Toronto FC opponent and the game itself taking place Saturday.

We’ll have reporter and sports business columnist Geoff Baker speaking daily with soccer reporter Matt Pentz from Toronto. Columnist Larry Stone will also be at Saturday’s game and will throw in some commentary as well, along with interviews, insights and other tidbits you’ll only find right here.
