How to get involved in all of the MLS Cup festivities ahead of Sunday's match

It all comes down to this.

On Sunday, the Seattle Sounders will take on Toronto FC in the MLS Cup final for the third time in four years. This time, it’s at CenturyLink Field, with a crowd of 69,000 expected to attend the match.

MLS Cup is the pinnacle event for the league, bringing together various activations and opportunities for supporters to immerse themselves in the festivities. Here’s a rundown of all the different activities supporters can participate in during the coming days.


PICKUP SOCCER AT YESLER PARK

Can’t get enough of watching soccer? Head to the RAVE Flagship Field at Yesler Terrace Park from 10:00 am to 12:00 p.m. PT on Saturday and catch a pickup soccer game hosted by former USMNT and MLS stalwart Jimmy Conrad and former Sounders captain Brad Evans. You won’t want to miss this one, as a few special Sounders guests could stop by to join Jimmy and Brad for the match. Make sure to bring your boots if you want to test your skills against some former professionals.

RAVE PARTY

Speaking of the RAVE Foundation, they will be hosting a pre-MLS Cup Party on Saturday night at Quality Athletics in Pioneer Square from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. PT. Support a good cause while you enjoy some drinks, snacks and Sounders-themed giveaways. You can also make all your friends jealous by snapping a photo with the Western Conference Trophy. You can RSVP for the event HERE.

HUGE TROPHY

What’s better than taking a picture with the MLS Cup? Taking a photo with an enormous MLS Cup at one of Seattle’s most iconic landmarks, Pike Place Market. The massive replica, which stands at 14 feet tall and eight feet wide, will be at Pike Place through Friday, November 8. After that, it will be moved to Occidental Park at 11:00 a.m. PT., where fans can roll through and take pictures with it to get hyped for the final on Sunday.

MARCH TO THE MATCH

Sunday’s March to the Match, a gameday tradition for Sounders supporters, will be an extravagant one. A supporters’ rally will kick off in Occidental Park at 8:00 a.m. PT, with free coffee, live music and entertainment provided. There will also be appearances from former Sounders FC players, Sounders FC goalkeeper Bheem Goyal and a special guest. Let’s flex on TFC by having the most epic, boisterous, jam-packed March to the Match in club history.

WATCH PARTY

If you were unable to get tickets to MLS Cup, show up for the squad at our official Watch Party, presented by Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola, in Occidental Park at 11:00 a.m. PT. The game will be aired on a giant screen, with giveaways and special decorations.
