Social Timeline: Seattle unites behind Sounders FC ahead of MLS Cup Playoffs opener

Wired to win. Wired together.

On Tuesday evening, the Seattle Sounders trounced LAFC 3-1 to eliminate the Black & Gold from the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs for the second consecutive season.

With the entire city of Seattle behind them, the Sounders put on a show as Nicolás Lodeiro, Raúl Ruidíaz and Jordan Morris combined to power the Rave Green past LAFC, booking a spot in the Western Conference Semifinals.

It was an epic evening for the club as the team wrote another successful chapter to its already dominant history in Major League Soccer since 2009. With the Sounders representing Seattle on domestic soccer's biggest stage, the other local professional sports teams rallied around the Rave Green.

Plenty of local institutions and businesses voiced their support for the Rave Green, showing some #SeattleLove as the Sounders embarked on their journey to repeat as MLS Cup Champions.

Of course, several members of the club's ownership group chimed in to wish the team luck ahead of the match.

The Seattle Sounders will host FC Dallas at Lumen Field on Tuesday, Dec. 1 (6:30 p.m. PT; FS1) in the Western Conference Semifinals.
