FRIENDLY COMPETITION: Wright said of the international friendlies, "We're looking at some big ones again. We feel good about it. ... But now we've got so many other games, I don't think we can fit all three of our friendlies (into the July and early August time period favored by European clubs). So I think we're going to have to take another of our windows and find a team from another part of the world than Europe to come play in October or May." In Tacoma, Don Ruiz notes the Sounders are "guaranteed at least one home game in the CONCACAF Champions League, and they are likely to host games in defense of their U.S. Open Cup title." But early round games in those competitions "will be played at Starfire Sports Stadium" in Tukwila, Washington, and are "not part of the season-ticket package" (Tacoma NEWS TRIBUNE, 1/28).
