SEATTLE — Sounders fans are gearing up for a big victory celebration today, expected to attract thousands of people to downtown Seattle!
Organizers say it’s hard to guess how many people will show up to the march and rally, but they’re preparing for what could be up to 20,000 people.
All intersections along the main march route — which follows Fourth Avenue North from the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Pine Street before turning right on Cedar Street to continue north on Fifth Avenue to Thomas Street — will be closed to traffic beginning at 9 a.m.
Q13 FOX & JOEtv — the home of Seattle Sounders FC — are broadcasting the event live on TV and in the player below, bringing you an exclusive vantage point from the trolleys and exclusive interviews with players along the way.
