  • The NINETY: Sounders FC fans join us in the early afternoon until the match in The NINETY as we host our first ever blood and bone marrow drive with Bloodworks Northwest and Be The Match!
    • Bloodworks Northwest will be on-site prior to the match in The NINETY. Each year, Bloodworks Northwest helps over 55,000 patients receive life-saving blood transfusions in the Pacific Northwest. Blood donations are used daily by patients undergoing surgery, cancer treatment, organ transplants, and trauma injuries and burns. A patient with a childhood cancer typically receives at least 2 blood products during treatment. Your blood donation is critical in helping our community maintain a stable supply.  Spacing is limited so registration is required, no walk-up appointments! 

    • Be The Match will be on-site in The NINETY and inside CenturyLink Field at Soccer Celebration to encourage Sounders FC fans to join the donor registry! Their mission is to provide a matching donor for every patient in need and eliminate barriers to transplant, and we are about to accomplish that with your help. Be The Match, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program, connects patients with blood diseases to their life-saving marrow or stem cell transplant. Anyone between the ages of 18-44 who is in good health and committed to donating to a patient in need is encouraged to join the donor registry. Joining is simple and takes less than 10 minutes – all you need to do is fill out a form and swab your cheek. Once you join, you stay on the registry until you are 61 and are called to donate only if you are the best match for a patient. Food Trucks: El Camión and Skillet will be in the North Plaza.
