Seattle Sounders close in on USL PRO team
Sounders general manager and part owner Adrian Hanauer has revealed that the Seattle club will enter a team in the US Soccer's third division next year to play at the Starfire Complex where the team trains.
"We're somewhere between 95 and 99 percent heading toward a USL PRO team here (at Starfire), certainly to begin with," he said.
"We'll remain open to other opportunities, whether that means in the near vicinity to Starfire and Seattle or areas outside of the close geographic vicinity - Spokane or Boise or Bellingham or Everett or Tacoma. We're open to those opportunities, but it would require finding a good partner and a good facility."
"It's been great for us to talk to the Galaxy a little bit about their experience with Galaxy II to learn what things have gone well, what things they might do differently in the future," Hanauer added.
