HYPE STATION: Here's a compilation of all the club's postseason hype videos

West Champions

HYPE HYPE HYPE. 


For good reason, everyone around these parts has reached an unearthly level of hype. We're rapidly approaching when the Sounders take on Toronto FC in the MLS Cup at BMO Field (1 p.m. PT; ESPN, UniMás, KIRO Radio 97.3 FM, El Rey 1360 AM). The storylines are endless -- a rematch of last year's title match, Toronto attempting to stake its claim as the greatest MLS side ever, Seattle going for consecutive titles. 


The video hype has been pretty darn good, too. Here's a compilation of SoundersFC.com's hype videos so far this postseason.


Dear Seattle 


Dear Seattle,

This cup is ours, and we intend to keep it that way.

A season-long effort was released at the end of October, with a passionate compilation of the captain's pre-match speech in the huddle.


Fan-Driven HYPE

The road support was absolute fire for the first road match of the MLS Cup Playoffs.

Houston Hype

A comfortable 2-0 road victory in Leg 1 is hype worthy, indeed.

Definitely a front-runner for most hype of any hype video.

This video has it all! One of the most memorable nights in club history comes to life.

"Boom, Boom, Clap" before the match is awesome...

One of the club's favorite pre-match traditions was even cooler after the final whistle.

This was produced earlier in 2017, but with the rematch on Saturday, it's worthy of a rewatch.
