A Testimonial match has been set for March 1 at Memorial Stadium to honor longtime Sounders great Zach Scott, who retired after the team's MLS Cup win in December.
Testimonial matches to honor longtime players are a big deal in soccer havens like Europe and South America. The Sounders, as good as they’ve been in MLS play, now finally have a chance to honor a former player that was there throughout as “Mr. Sounder” Zach Scott gets feted March 1 at Memorial Stadium.
The game, a joint effort between the Sounders and their Emerald City Supporters, will feature two teams coached by Brad Evans and Osvaldo Alonso. The rosters for each side will be comprised of players from each year Scott played with the Sounders from 2002-2016, including Kasey Keller, Roger Levesque and Jhon Kennedy Hurtado.
Doors open at 6 p.m. PT, pregame events start at 7 p.m. and kickoff will be soon after that.
