Seattle Sounders FC Head coach Sigi Schmid is very aware that his team will need to get used to new home Qwest Field and playing on field turf.

“It’s important for us to get comfortable,” Schmid told The News Tribune. “We want to have a number of training sessions here before we play our first game. We want to make sure that when we step out here for our first game, it is our sixth or seventh time out here. We want to be a lot more familiar with the field than New York.”

Seattle Sounders kick of their debut 2009 season against Red Bull New York Thursday 19th March at Quest Field, Seattle.
