Sounders FC’s 2021 playoff campaign is presented by WaFd Bank, the club’s exclusive banking partner, and kicks off on Tuesday, November 23, as the Rave Green take on Real Salt Lake at Lumen Field (7:30 p.m. PT / FS1, FOX Deportes, 1090 KJR AM, El Rey 1360 AM).

• Sounders FC’s home, Lumen Field, and its recognizable arches are leading the way with Rave Green lighting on Monday, November 22 and Tuesday, November 23.

• The Seattle Mariners support their neighbors by changing T-Mobile Park’s magenta lighting to Rave Green on Monday, November 22 and Tuesday, November 23.

In addition, the statues of Mariners legends Ken Griffey Jr. and Edgar Martinez, located on the corner of First Avenue and Edgar Martinez Drive, will be dressed in Sounders FC jerseys these evenings as well.
