COVID-19 Information

Sounders Family,

As we have all taken actions to stay healthy amid the COVID-19 crisis, public safety and the wellbeing of our players, fans and staff remain our top priority. We are so thankful to all the frontline workers who have stepped up to keep us safe during this unprecedented time.  

In a significant step forward, Major League Soccer announced it will restart the 2020 season with all 26 MLS clubs competing in the MLS is Back Tournament at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida beginning July 8. Upon completion of the tournament, MLS plans to continue its regular season with a revised schedule in home markets. The revised schedule may see certain matches from the original 2020 MLS regular season schedule being cancelled or rescheduled. The final number of matches and the schedule for the remainder of the 2020 MLS regular season and related ticket policies will be announced in the coming weeks.

The MLS medical department and the league’s infectious disease experts have developed a comprehensive COVID-19 testing plan which will be implemented for the entire MLS is Back Tournament.  An overview of health, safety and medical protocols can be found HERE

The club will be communicating directly with all 2020 ticket purchasers including 2020 Alliance Members, partial package holders and those who have purchased single match tickets regarding ticketing options based on the above announcement. For more detailed information on the MLS is Back Tournament click HERE.

Thank you for all of your continued support. Go Sounders!

Press Release


Seattle Sounders FC has launched a targeted effort in the fight against COVID-19 by establishing the Seattle Sounders FC Relief Fund, aimed primarily at supporting individuals, non-profits and small businesses in the neighborhoods surrounding CenturyLink Field that have been adversely impacted by the postponement of the 2020 MLS season due to the current public health crisis. These districts include SoDo, Pioneer Square and the Chinatown-International District.




Sounders FC remains part of both a regional task force and Major League Soccer’s task force to monitor this developing situation. The former includes Governor Inslee’s office, Public Health – Seattle & King County, the office of King County Executive Dow Constantine, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan’s office and the City of Seattle, in addition to many others. We are in constant communication with these constituents, and as matters evolve and more information becomes available, we will continue to provide relevant details to the public.

 Public health recommendations to slow the spread of COVID-19?

• Stay home when you are sick. Do not go out in public when you are sick.

• Avoid medical settings in general unless necessary. Healthcare facilities are at capacity. If you are ill in any way call your doctor’s office first before going in.

• Even if you are not ill, avoid visiting hospitals, long term care facilities or nursing homes to the extent possible. If you do need to visit one of these facilities limit your time there and keep six feet away from patients.

• Do not go to the emergency room unless essential. Emergency rooms need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs. If you have symptoms like cough, fever, or other respiratory problems, contact your regular doctor first.

• Practice excellent personal hygiene habits, including washing your hands with soap and water frequently, coughing into a tissue or your elbow, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

• Stay away from people who are ill, especially if you are at higher risk for coronavirus.

• Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects (like doorknobs and light switches). Regular household cleaners are effective.

• Get plenty of rest, drink plenty of fluids, eat healthy foods, and manage your stress to keep your immunity strong
