In the world of crazy transfer rumours one other coming out of Seattle from several sources is that both Chelsea and Barcelona will be visiting Seattle for exhibition games in August 2009. Both Chelsea and Barcelona have had training camps on the West Coast of America in recent seasons. Chelsea FC has a business development deal with Los Angeles Galaxy and Barcelona recently inked a deal with MLS owners SUM to develop both brands.

Should the games be played at the Seahawks stadium which has a turf field, preparations for a grass field, would have to be taken into consideration.
