SEATTLE SOUNDERS TO ISSUE CREDIT TO SEASON TICKET HOLDERS AFTER DISMAL PERFORMANCE

In a move unique in the annals of Major League Soccer, Seattle Sounders FC are refunding their season ticket holders after the teams performance in a loss to the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday Night.  A franchise record of 36,273 showed up at Qwest Field to see the Sounders tangle with the league leading Galaxy, but had to suffer through the 4-0 loss, which was also a franchise record.

“That wasn’t Sounders soccer and it was quite frankly embarrassing, humiliating and the fans don’t deserve that,” said Sounders FC owner and general manager Adrian Hanauer on the team’s website. “The refund will come in the form of a credit against next year’s season tickets. We want our fans committed for the long haul and we think this is the right thing to do for our fans.”

The news of the credit was on the local Seattle news Sunday night, but not every fan welcomed the news.

“I appreciate what they’re doing” said Mike Mulvihill, a Sounders season ticket holder. “But I’d rather them charge me, and use the money to buy a goalscorer.”
