Football (er, soccer) frenzy builds up in Fremont

By Heidi · October 27th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Buzz is all about for the city’s newest and shiniest sports sensation, the Seattle Sounders, this week.  On Thursday, they kick off Game 1 of a two-match semifinal series in the MLS Playoffs here at home.

We spotted a Sounders crew in Fremont this morning trying to get fans excited for Thursday’s match against the Houston Dynamo at Qwest Field (they had another crew in Ballard).  Not that the team needs any help drumming up ticket sales.  In fact, tickets have been hard to come by all season.

Playoff tickets went on sale Saturday morning and sold out within 30 minutes.  Due to overwhelming response, though, the Sounders have opened up 3,000 more seats in the upper level at Qwest Field.  Tickets start at just $20 and you can buy them online here.
