Timbers-Sounders Match Draws Record Crowd Of More Than 66,000
The MLS Sounders defeated the Timbers 3-0 yesterday in front of a crowd of 66,452 at CenturyLink Field, marking the "second-largest crowd in league history for a stand-alone game." For the Sounders, it was also a "franchise-record crowd for an MLS game." MLS Commissioner Don Garber, who was on-hand for the match, said, "I'm not even here on official duty tonight. I'm here just to experience it. I knew this would be a historic event" (SEATTLE TIMES, 10/8).
