The Sounders will begin the road to defending their MLS title with a two-match set vs. the Whitecaps, starting Sunday evening in Vancouver.

Seattle will be without star forward Clint Dempsey, who will serve a one-game suspension for a red card in the team’s last match. They are also without Jordan Morris, who is still out with a hamstring injury.
