Sounders FC announces official U.S. Men's National team FIFA World Cup Watch Parties ahead of group stage matches


Seattle Sounders FC today announced details surrounding the club’s official U.S. Men’s National Team FIFA World Cup Watch Parties. Taking place at The Armory at Seattle Center, the free events give fans of all ages the opportunity to join Sounders FC to cheer on the The Stars and Stripes as they battle in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Watch parties are being hosted for all three of the United States’ group stage matches: USA vs. Wales (Monday, November 21 – 11:00 a.m. PT), USA vs. England (Friday, November 25 – 11:00 a.m. PT) and USA vs. Iran (Tuesday, November 29 – 11:00 a.m. PT). 

Admission is free and provided on a first-come, first-served basis with entry for each match beginning at 9:00 a.m. PT and continuing until the Armory reaches capacity. While garage and street parking are available throughout the Seattle Center area, Sounders FC encourages those attending the watch parties to take public transit, including the Seattle Center Monorail.

Those coming to the parties can look forward to watching the games on a giant screen in an electric group atmosphere. Sounders FC is also providing pre-match musical entertainment, interactive games and a variety of ways to win exciting prizes, including an authentic framed USMNT jersey, limited-edition Sounders FC adidas Ultraboost x COPA shoes and more. 

Additional special giveaways and prizes include:

• At each watch party, the Puyallup Tribe’s Emerald Queen Casino is giving away a one-night stay at its new EQC Tacoma Hotel, along with a $100 food credit to Slahal, the hotel’s exclusive rooftop restaurant.

• At the November 25 watch party, WaFd Bank, the Exclusive Banking Partner of Seattle Sounders FC, has generously donated two Stefan Frei signed jerseys and ten 2022 Throwback Hats that will be given out as prizes to fans.

For each watch party, all Armory food and drink locations will be open, with an additional beer garden space offered for attendees 21 years of age and older. Additionally, the first 1,500 guests to enter each watch party can receive a Sounders-themed World Cup rally towel, while the first 300 Sounders FC Season Ticket Members in attendance at each watch party will receive an exclusive Sounders-themed World Cup long-sleeve t-shirt.

Fans can also take part in the recently announced MLS Qatar Quest Bracket Challenge, which gives the opportunity to fill out a bracket to win big prizes.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is set to air live on FOX, FS1 and the FOX Sports App in English, as well as Telemundo, Universo and Peacock in Spanish. Fans in the Seattle area can tune into FOX 13 for English broadcasts.

At the conclusion of matches on November 25 and November 29, fans are encouraged to explore Seattle Center Winterfest, presented by Symetra.
