March to the Match

March to the Match! Arrive early and participate in one of the best traditions in American sports - the March to the Match. This prematch march, dating back to 2005, was started by Emerald City Supporters and has become a hallmark of the Sounders matchday.

The Sounders FC March to the Match begins 90-minutes prior to kickoff at Occidental Park in Pioneer Square. Join comic, broadcaster and halftime emcee Ken Carson as he hosts the show and announces the starting lineup. Enjoy special performances by Sounders FC official band, Sound Wave and participate in contests and giveaways, all culminating in a march led by supporters to CenturyLink Field while singing and chanting Sounders FC fight songs.
