The countdown has begun!
In 93 days, the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games will begin in Seattle. Over 4,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities will come to the Emerald City from July 1 – July 6 to participate in a number of events. The Sounders are stoked to be involved, and we hope you are, too!
We‘re aiming to have over 1,000 “fans in the stands” throughout the week, cheering on the Special Olympics soccer athletes. This means, you just have to register, show up and cheer on the soccer athletes alongside Jordan Morris, Roger Levesque and others. No training session required. Be sure to register as a fan in the stands below.*
In addition, we’ve created a unique ticket offer to support this huge event. If you purchase tickets for the match against the Portland Timbers on June 30, you will receive a limited edition Special Olympics USA Games scarf. This offer can be accessed HERE.
If you already have a ticket to the June 30th match, please consider purchasing through this offer to get your scarf and allow us to donate your ticket to a Special Olympics athlete.
