Seattle Sounders extend CenturyLink Field lease to 2028

The Seattle Sounders have secured a ten-year extension to their lease at CenturyLink Field, keeping them at the ground until at least 2028.

The Major League Soccer (MLS) side have been based at CenturyLink Field, the best-attended ground in MLS with an average match attendance of 43,000, since their inception in 2009. They are currently on a run of 109 consecutive MLS sell-outs.

Opened in 2002, CenturyLink Field also plays host to the Seattle Seahawks National Football League (NFL) team. The venue, which has a total capacity of 67,000, is operated by First & Goal Inc, a company founded by Seahawks owner and Sounders part-owner Paul Allen in 1997.

“Since the inception of our organisation, CenturyLink Field has played a critical role in the growth, development and perception of our club, as has our partnership with the Seattle Seahawks and First & Goal Inc,” said Sounders FC majority owner Joe Roth.

“CenturyLink Field is a premier facility that gives our players, fans and partners a first-class experience. For these reasons and more, we are pleased to call CenturyLink our long-term home, as Sounders FC continues to set the standard for our sport on and off the field.”
