More Than 3,000 Fans Submit Deposits For Seattle MLS Tickets
Published November 15, 2007
More than 3,000 fans have submitted $50 per-seat deposits on season tickets for Seattle’s new MLS franchise that was officially announced Tuesday, according to Matthew Gaschk of the SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER. The yet-to-be-named team’s co-Owner and GM Adrian Hanauer said, “This is what we were hoping for, but we didn’t know exactly what to expect. To hear that so many people responded just within the first 30 hours shows me that this is going to be a success.” Hanauer said that he “doesn’t expect the initial boom in ticket sales to last long, but does think there will be a steady stream of new tickets sold in the coming months.” Meanwhile, co-Owner Joe Roth “expressed interest” in signing U.S. national team and Premier League club Fulham G Kasey Keller, who is from the Seattle area and has indicated he wants to return there to finish his career (SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 11/14).
