As previously announced, the MLS champion Seattle Sounders will hold a march and rally on Tuesday to celebrate the newly-won MLS Cup. On Monday, the club announced the route, locations, and time for festivities. Check out all the details below so you know where to go (or not go if it’s not your thing).
March Begins: Westlake Park at Fourth Avenue & Pine Street, 11:00 a.m.
March Route: Sounders FC players and coaches will ride on Emerald City Trolleys north along Fourth Avenue, turn right on Cedar Street and continue north on Fifth Avenue, before eventually heading west at Thomas Street into Seattle Center.
March End: Fisher Lawn at Seattle Center, approx. 12:30 p.m.
Rally: When the march ends, the rally begins and runs until 1:30 p.m. The event will take place near Memorial Stadium, where the Sounders first played in 1974.
Who’s Going: Between 3,000 and 10,000 people are expected to line the streets for the march & parade while 10-20,000 are expected for the Seattle Center rally.
Where Should I Avoid: If this isn’t your bag, stay away from Downtown Seattle all morning. If you’re commuting into Seattle in the morning, be prepared to see a lot of green.
