SOUNDERS COMMUNITY TRUST – 20% OWNERS OF S2
As a truly unprecedented gesture, Seattle Sounders FC committed a 20% interest in S2 to the Sounders Community Trust. The Sounders Community Trust is a charitable, fan and supporter-managed, non-profit organization formed to assume a 20% interest in S2.
The purpose of the Sounders Community Trust is to influence the direction of Seattle Sounders FC through S2, and support overall access to soccer in our community. Seattle Sounders FC, S2 and the Sounders Community Trust are entirely separate entities working in close partnership. The Sounders Community Trust has the right to elect one representative to sit on the S2 Executive Board overseeing S2 operations, and vote on key S2 operational decisions.
Sounders Community Trust membership is open to all fans and supporters. Each member has an equal vote and receives equal benefits. Individual membership is available to all fans and supporters of all levels of engagement. Inclusivity is at the core of S2 and Sounders Community Trust, and diversity in Sounders Community Trust membership allows for enhanced interaction and community impact. By joining the Sounders Community Trust, each member takes part in the evolution of the soccer community by developing players, facilities and support for, and access to the sport.
