Seattle Sounders have held tryouts for 62 participants in Las Vegas from December 18-20.

The club saw the invitational event as a good way to oversee some talent ahead of the January 14 MLS SuperDraft where they will make three selections in total – 11th (first round), 27th (second round) and 59th (fourth round).

"We were able to watch some pretty good soccer over the three days. Sixteen of the players were invited to the MLS Combine, and we also got a good look at some guys who might be under the radar,” said technical director Chris Henderson.
