Seattle Sounders coach Sigi Schmid says he is surprised at the level of support the team is receiving.

The Sounders fans have come out in droves in the franchise’s first season in MLS and Schmid hopes it continues, especially at away fixtures.

"You can maybe say surprising,” Schmid said of the support.

“It's really pleasing. I think the Sounder family, if I can call them that, has been really supportive of what our team has done. And, they have been there from day one and haven't backed away.

“Even when we saw the support we had in L.A. with the local Sounders club and the fans that came out there, that was tremendous. Our fans have stayed loyal. We want them to continue to stay loyal.
“We want them to know that we are going to give our best. The best days for this club are still ahead of us."
