If you're still holding out on buying a ticket for the Zach Scott Testimonial Match at Memorial Stadium on March 1, we have another reason why you can't miss it. The roster has been released for the upcoming match, co-hosted by Emerald City Supporters and the Seattle Sounders, and it features teammates, family and friends of the 15-year Sounders veteran who will lace up their boots in honor of Mr. Sounder.
Defenders: Zach Scott, Daniel Scott, Djimi Traore, Ezra Hendrickson, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, Kevin Sakuda, Ryan Edwards, Scott Jenkins
Midfielders: Ben Somoza, Chad Brown, Chris Henderson, Darren Sawatzky, Gonzalo Pineda, Hugo Alcaraz Cuellar, Jacob Waxman, Jason Farrell, Leighton O'Brien, Nate Sturgis, Sean Henderson, Steve Zakuani, Michael Tetteh
Forwards: Cam Weaver, Craig Tomlinson, Nate Jaqua, Roger Levesque, Viet Nguyen
Goalkeepers: Ben Dragavon, Chris Eylander, Jimmy Ward, Kasey Keller
The teams will be coached by Brad Evans and Osvaldo Alonso. Tickets will be available from $10.20 — the 20 cents represent Scott’s No. 20 he wore — for the upper grandstand, $20 for the lower grandstand and $50 for on-field seating. You can purchase tickets here.
One hundred percent of the proceeds raised will be put toward the Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Fund, the Seattle Sounders’ RAVE Foundation and a college fund for Scott’s three children. Scott’s daughter’s friend Avery is suffering from a brain tumor, and Scott’s decision to donate some of the profits to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Fund is a direct result of that.
