The Friendliest Battle: Sounders vs. Manchester United

Thursday, July 21, 2011by  WALLY Team
It was a friendly match of epic proportions at Seattle's CenturyLink Field as the Seattle Sounders took on the mighty team from across the pond, Manchester United.

The stadium was overflowing with "I Think I Am I'm Sure I Am" Sounders FC Fans who wanted a shot at one of futbol's elite clubs, as all three levels were opened and attendance records were shattered. Unfortunately, only one team decided to play friendly; Man U meant serious business as they dismantled our hometown heroes 7-0.

A couple of true Sounders fans ready for the action!

But we made up for the lack of intense competition inside CenturyLink…there were some fierce matches happening in front of WALLY1 as the 2011 PEMCO Foos Cup took place before kick-off at 7 p.m.

A match almost as intense as the one between the Sounders and Man U

While the Foos Cup season top-scorer crown may still go to the Foos Brothers with 29 goals in just five minutes, we saw another duo aim to take the almighty 2011 season top-spot. Sitecrafting was the highest scoring team of the day with an impressive 21 goals, earning them a moment of glory as their picture was shown on SounderVision during the match.

They may have come up just short of the unbelievable 29-goal mark, but they vowed they would be back at the next home game to try their luck (and skills) again.

As the 2011 Sounders Season continues, the fight to be the top-scoring team of the season is getting more and more ferocious…but there can only be one team that wins the grand prize — a VIP experience for the Sounders' last home match in October.

Do you think you have what it takes to be the 2011 PEMCO Foos Cup Champion? Show us your foosball skills at the next Sounders home game against Chivas USA on August 13th. You better start practicing between now and then if you want to be the season champion!
