The Seattle Sounders have been one of the most successful teams in Major League Soccer since joining the league in 2009. The Sounders have made the playoffs in all nine seasons of their existence, hoping for a strong second half to push the streak to ten straight years. In 2016 the Sounders won the MLS Cup and last season the Sounders fell just short, losing in the MLS Cup final.
The Sounders are led offensively by forwards Clint Dempsey and Will Bruin. Dempsey is the Sounders all time greatest regular season goal scorer, while Bruin is far and away the club’s best goalscorer for this season. Midfielder Osvaldo Alonso is the club’s captain, while goalkeeper Stefan Frei anchors the defense. Seattle Sounders FC is coached by head coach Brian Schmetzer.
