Sounders FC Supporter Groups
The Sounders FC boasts one of the most passionate and diverse selection of supporters in Major League Soccer and is proud to recognize the following four official supporter groups - Emerald City Supporters, Gorilla FC, North End Faithful and Eastside Supporters.
EMERALD CITY SUPPORTERS
WHO ARE THE EMERALD CITY SUPPORTERS?
Emerald City Supporters (ECS) are a group of independent supporters of Seattle Sounders FC. Our aim is to support our team and to create a good atmosphere in the stadium. The vision is that the ECS becomes an umbrella organization that incorporates supporter subgroups of all persuasions. If you are thinking of starting a group or need help please contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Or you can just stand with the ECS without starting a subgroup.
HOW DO I JOIN?
Easy. During the season just show up in our section at CenturyLink Field. We will stand in the south end general admission sections 121-123, also nicknamed the Brougham End. Before home games a lot of us will also gather at Fuel, a bar just a couple of blocks north of CenturyLink Field. During the off-season, sign up on our discussion forum and attend one of the off-season events that will be announced there.
WHAT IS OUR HISTORY?
The ECS was formed in 2005. Back then we supported the now defunct Seattle Sounders of the USL Division 1. We look at Seattle Sounders FC as a direct continuation of the same soccer tradition that the USL club was a part of.
